Duration:~5 minutes
Triangular light formation over Denver on the 4th.

My girlfriend and I were watching fireworks from our balcony on the 8th floor. Looking directly North we have an open view of the city. I'm not sure the exact time as the fireworks started about 21:00 hours and continued for most of the night but my best estimate would be somewhere around 22:00-23:00 hours.

As we watched the fireworks over the city we both noticed three lights moving around about 15-20 degrees above the horizon. Their distance from us was hard to judge but my impression was that it was a good distance away >4 miles. The lights seemed to fade in and out of sight in order from three to one then three again.

The three lights maintained what seemed an equal distance from each other at all times. A perfect formation in a triangular shape. If the lights were on the corners of a flat triangular shape then the flat plane of that object looked to be twisting and rolling slowly but the lights remained visible.

The size of the lights were much larger than any of the surrounding fireworks which made them stand out more and the color was the light yellow of a typical street light as I recall.
