Lots of details about three orange lights springfield, mass. Heard you on coast to coast, freaked out.

I was heading towards downtown Springfield for the fireworks. I was traveling west and was stuck in traffic for aprox. five minutes. The fireworks began at 9:30pm, but I saw the lights around around 9:25pm. The fireworks were north of me, and the light were south of me. There were three distinctively orange lights in triangular formation, but moved in a oscillating fashion. I was screaming at people on the sidewalk from my car to look over the highway, but no one would look...it was ridiculous. These light were not that high in the sky hovering over the Connecticut River, I'm talkin maybe a thousand feet off the ground....maybe more. maybe less don't know the exact calculations. Sorry no photos or video from my end, but there were lots of cameras around that night. maybe call channel 22, channel 40, or channel 3 for footage from elevated positions shooting south over I-91 south. They were no more than a half mile from the memorial bridge, where the fireworks! were being held, and they were definately in our lower atmosphere.
