Shape: Triangle
Duration:30 seconds
3 orange orbs in triangular form perfectly still

It was right after twelve o clock and the ball had dropped to begin 2014. We went outside to shoot off illegal fireworks. My mom and I were in the yard shooting fireworks and my dad, two grandmothers, grandfather, and uncle were up on the porch.

A few minutes in to shooting off bottle rockets we noticed 3 orange orbs in a isosceles triangle. They were south of us and we live in landfall putting it over the Eastwood road area. We were all staring at it and they just hovered for roughly 30 secs. While still visible I thought they may be those paper bags with candles that people set off, but they stayed perfectly still and all quickly faded away at the exact same time. I've looked and seen nothing on local news so far.
