Location: Darlington, SC
Shape: Light
Duration:5 to 7 seconds
3 orange-red lights appeared in the sky to form a triangle.

On October 5th, I was driving home after dark. I approached the city limits just near my house. I noticed something in the sky moderately above the tree line. I thought it was a firework at first. It was a light that had an orange-red color to it. I focused my eyes on the object thinking since it was not a firework, maybe it was a plane. After 2 seconds, two more lights appeared above the first light. This formation was two lights on the top and one on the bottom. All three lights stayed lit for about 4 seconds and then it disappeared at once. At no time were these lights moving. It was too large to be an aircraft. I could not explain to myself what this object was. There was a vehicle behind me and I almost stopped the person to see if they saw this object too. I am in excellent health, no mental problems, and I am not crazy. I dont know what this object was. But, I do know that this was not your normal lights that appear in the night's sky. ! It was somewhat cloudy on that night on the way home. There were breaks in the clouds as it went back and forth between clouds and stars. Either way, I saw this weird object and I am not sure what it was.
