3 bright red lights over Billings, Montana.

This evening (4/3/2014) at approximately 8:20pm I went outside and seen 3 bright red lights in the sky as I faced in the Southern direction. The three lights were heading towards me going north.

At first they were moving horizontally together. The object on the left seemed to slow down and immediately started to fade out.

While this happened the object in the center made two sporadic movements. It seemed to slow down and then move to the right and back to the left. The object on the left continued to fade until I could no longer see it. While fading in brightness, it still remained red. I ran to my brother’s house next door to mine and rang the doorbell.

I continued watching the lights and the two remaining lit up objects began to fade at the same time. My brother and his wife came outside but by the time they looked up the lights had faded.

I continued watching and in the horizon I could make out two objects that looked like parachutes getting closer to the ground. They were far away from where I was but if they continued to fall they would have landed on the rims here. Logan international airport is on top of the rims and would have been extremely close to the area where these object were heading.

I continued to watch in the sky for about 10 more minutes but did not see any other activity. I came in my house and did not know who to call but remembered the UFO hotline that I heard about from Coast to Coast.

I called and gave a brief statement on the phone. I called KTVQ news station here in Billings, but the lady I talked did not hear of any sightings or strange lights in the sky.
