3 orange lights in sky over Smithville Lake, Missouri moving in unnatural flight pattern

My husband and I were camping at Smithville Lake, Missouri at the Crow’s Creek Park on July 25, 2009. At around 10:45pm, for some reason, I looked up at the sky and noticed 3 orange lights in the sky. They were in a triangle formation. The light on the left point faded out. The light on the right point started to slowly rise up towards the top point. At this time, my husband got up and stood next to me. I asked him if he was seeing what I was and he said yes. We watched the left point rise until it passed the top point. Then the top point faded out. About a minute later, still rising, and brighter than before, the last point (which was on the right in the beginning) faded out. We didn’t see anything else the rest of the night. The sky was clear and as we were at the lake, there were no city lights nearby and there are no commercial air routes over the lake.

My husband is 48 years old, a HVAC technician and high school graduate. I am 38 years old! , a paralegal and college graduate. Neither of us had been drinking or anything else at that point. We did afterwards, though.
