Triangular/ V-shape UFO spotted over North East Iowa.

At about 9:45 p.m. central time, my dad and I were driving from Cresco, IA, to Marquette, IA, as we tend to do every other weekend. When we got through Waukon, IA, we noticed 4 bright lights...three of which were PEACH size and color, and the other bright red. The bottom light was peach, and the next one was we thought we were looking at a light tower that had been tipped at 45 degrees to the right...though we knew no towers were there.

Then we noticed 2 more peach lights above that... the heighth from the ground unknown. The 4 lights moved TOGETHER and kept a common onterval...seeming as if it were one object.

To me it looked as if it were a triangle shape... or closed V- shape. The opening of the V was pointed West and the point, as it were, was to the East. The object was moving very rapidly to the North West very rapidly. I'd have to say 5 times faster than a normal 747 would...maybe faster, as it was only visible for 5 mins... at first it didn't seem to move, for 5 mins, and then all of a sudden, this whole thing shot off to the North West.

I can try to submit a drawing of what we saw if desired.
