Three sets of lights seen over nassau county New York

At 22:05 Eastern time on the night of Friday, January 24th, 2014, I observed three (3) sets of three (3) red lights in the sky approximately one (1) to one and a half (1.5) miles East of my home. Each individual red light was approximately twice the size of a usual star in the sky. Each set of three (3) lights was in a triangular configuration, one (1) light centered above (2) other lights. Each set of lights was approximately twenty (20) to thirty (30) yards away from the next, and situated linearly from each other as if on the rim of a disc-shaped object, or down the side of a cylindrical or cigar-shaped object. I could not actually see the shape of the object itself, I am approximating it's shape from the positions of the sets of lights. My house faces North, and I was in my back yard facing East when I noticed the lights. The object slowly moved in a North-by-Northeast direction, for less that twenty (20) seconds before it was blocked from my view by trees and houses. My best estimate is that from the objects position when I first noticed it. It was approximately one (1) to one and a half (1.5) miles East of me, and approximately eight (8) to ten (10) inches above estimated horizon. True horizon could not be calculated due to fences/houses/etc.
