3 large red-orange pulsating lights in trianglar formation

At approximately 11:15pm, July 19. 2013 I witnessed an incredible sight from my front porch facing south near the Ottawa River Parkway. After severe thunderstorms all afternoon it was a very cloudy night. The moon was barely visible....just a soft glow behind the clouds.

Suddenly, I saw 3 large reddish-orange pulsating lights in a triangular/V formation. They appeared at fairly low altitude, in clear view below the heavy clouds. The lights remained hovering in that formation for about 2min, then quickly moved eastwards and disappeared. After the initial shock and excitement, I managed to fumble for my phone and I actually captured it on video for approx. 7 seconds. It is very quick, but you can clearly see the light formation, flickering in the sky and then quickly drift east and disappear. Fascinating and slightly discomforting.... Truly something I will never forget.
