three orange lights in a triangle shape the lights looked like fire moving at a high rate of speed at a very high altitude

I am reporting this sighting over a year later, due to it still bothering me in not knowing what i and the others saw that night. It was the night before the fourth of July in 2010 some of my mother and father in laws neighbors had started letting fireworks off already. We had a small fire going and were sitting around having a drink with the neighbors watching the fireworks. I happend to look up into the sky and saw 3 lights in the sky. They were orange and looked like they were on fire. I was in the military for six years and knowing all aircraft has strobes on them in prominet locations i started looking for them before notifying my wife, in laws and neighbors. The lights were extremely high compared to the other aircraft in the area and for as high as they were they were traveling at an extremely high rate of speed. the three lights were in a triangle shape or formation they kept the exact same rate of speed is the reason i think its a single craft but ! it could be multiple. One of the neighbors suggested it could be several misiles due to the look of the lights as it looked like fire that would come out of a jet engine. I disagreed with that explination due to me being in the military if anything of that magnitude had hapend i would have been called and put on alert. Even as fast as the object was moving we all could watch it for about five to ten minutes.
