Three red lights seen from Lake Hopatcong, NJ on january 26

Three of us were walking accross Lake Hopatcong on the evening of Monday, January 26. Around 8:30 pm I looked up to the sky from the center of the lake, over the area of Mt. Arlington, and saw 3 red blinking lights in the sky. It was in the eastern direction. The 3 red lights were in the shape of a triangle, blinking, and stationary. The blinked for about 10-15 minutes then disappeared. At first I thought it was a light tower, but it was much to high, especially compared to the tower we could see in the same area. Not planes either, as the airport has a holding pattern over the lake and we could see several airplanes flying in the same direction, in comparison just didn't look like an airplane. We tried to take pictures with our camera phones, but the cameras were not good enough to capture what we saw
