Location: East Los Angeles, CA
Shape: Triangle
Duration:1 minute
We were driving home from downtown L.A. on the 10 fwy headed east. Fireworks were going off on both sides of the freeway. Traffic was about 30 to 50 mph a little slow. There was a lot of smoke in the sky from the fireworks. I noticed 3 orange/red lights that formed a triangle (btw, any 3 dots in the sky will form a triangle) I thought it was strange that these lights weren't going down or up like the fireworks all around.

As we got close and kept looking south of the freeway the lights appeared to remain the same distance apart from each other. My wife saw it and since I was driving I asked her what it was. She got excited and took a picture, but she says it didn't come out, just a lot of smoke. She says they were floating above and not going down. I speculated flares on parachutes, but she said they weren't going down and seemed like they were slowly headed west. maybe flares on balloons? I don't know. But I was curious if anyone else saw something ! and maybe got a better look.
