3 red lights form triangular shape - just hovering in the air.

My wife called me outside at about 19:50 on Sunday evening, 3 Oct 3010 to look at the sky.

When i looked at the sky i saw what looked like 3 bright red stars forming a triangle like image - hovering in the air above the horizon to our west.

Similar to the following: . .

We were looking to the west from our West Rand suburb - just North West of Johannesburg, South Africa.

The lights moved slightly upward, then one of them moved very slight lower and the over very slightly to the right. Then all three of them faded out - one by one. Not all at the same time. They did not move fast left, right or up - they just faded into darkness.

I thought they could be flares, but who would light 3 flares at the same time?? The only conclusion i can reach after reading up on UFOs on the internet is that this must have been a UFO sighting.
