Red triangle seen over us Virgin Islands on New Year's Eve.

My boyfriend and I were on a boat at a firework launch sight for a new years eve celebration.

We were on our one minute countdown to midnight when, above our small island, rose a red inverted triangle. Each point of the triangle had a red light.

At first my boyfriend thought they were flares but then we noticed they weren't moving AT ALL.

At midnight, the fireworks went off and we lost sight. When I found them again during a break, the point of the triangle was on top instead of bottom, but the whole formation was in the same vicinity as before.

Judging by distance, I would guess the object was about 100 ft on each side.

Tried to catch a photo, but being on the water in waves, I could not get a clear shot.
