Reported: 1/31/2016 9:11:30 PM 21:11
Posted: 2/4/2016
Location: West Suffield, CT
Shape: Circle
Duration:2 minutes
When letting my dog out approx 8:45pm, I was checking out the stars, when I turned around and saw 5 large bright orange lights flying in weird formation, 3 on top row, and two on bottom row, but not perfect, making 2 triangles moving from left (WEST) to right (EAST) in complete silence for a couple minutes. They moved loosely changing formations.

Definitely not planes or helicopters, as I see airport traffic all the time. They moved fast at first slowed down and stopped, I ran inside to call my 19yr old son & grab my cell phone. When I came out of house with my cell phone, I saw 2 which were smaller, due to having moved to a further proximity now and more red in color now moving left to right they stopped and then seemed to wiggle and went straight away (NORTH) from us extremely fast & got very small & disappeared in seconds.
