Shape: Triangle
Duration:5 Seconds
Three low flying orange lights forming a triangle with a haze around the object on a clear night.

We were out laying on the lawn trying to watch the last night of the meteor shower when we noticed 3 almost orange in color lights moving across the sky in an almost straight line (possibly a slight zig-zag motion). The lights stayed in perfect unison and did not appear to be very high up (maybe 1000 feet or less on a guess). The odd thing was that although it seemed to be a perfectly clear night the 3 lights appeared to have a large haze around them and it also seemed that there was a slight glow in the middle of the triangle. I can't really judge the speed but it was comparable to a slow and low flying jet except for the fact that there was no noise what so ever (but this also depends on the true size of the suspected object).

I was an Electronics Technician in the US Navy from 00-05. Stationed on an aircraft carrier from 01-05 and have never seen anything like this.

My brother was there also and saw the same thing.

His girlfriend said she saw it and said it looked like a bird or three birds flying in formation or something but I have no idea how she came up with that conclusion and wonder if she even really saw what my brother and I did.

We were all in the same exact location on the ground.
