Reported: 7/4/2014 8:19:33 PM 20:19

Location: West Branch, IA
Shape: Cylinder
Duration:6 minutes
3 red lights 1 bright white one and 1 dim white one.

It was 10:00pm and I was called outside and when I went outside I saw 3 orange/red cylinders floating through the sky in a triangle formation.

I thought it was Chinese lanterns but it was not windy at all, also it couldn't have stayed in that formation that long. I walked down a pathway and saw one bright white light floating through the sky very fast. It couldn't have been in the sky more than 30 seconds. about a minute later at home I saw one very dim light floating slower than the white light but aster than the 3 red lights. it floated through the sky before disappearing into the sky. What were these?
