Characteristics: There were lights on the object, The object changed color
A white triangle formation was seen along northern Ohio toll road.

I was in a 15-passenger van travelling on the 80/90 toll road heading toward Toledo after a day at Cedar Point with other summer camp workers. It was a Saturday, and if it wasn't exactly 4th of July, it was the closest weekend because everyone was watching fireworks displays. Soon, the big displays were gone, all but the driver, front seat passenger, and myself were asleep, and I was only seeing a few personal fireworks in the air. I noticed bright white/pale blue lights kind of ahead of us to the left. There were three, and if you could play connect the dots they looked to be at a perftect triangle formation, then as I watched them longer, I noticed a fourth light slightly off to the right, and the angles of the triangle formation were changing. They were just hovering. The one to the right at times seemed to go the middle of the fomation, and at one point I thought I had seen a fifth one, but it was gone quickly if I did. They were mostly shining white, but at one point looked bluish.

I tried to get the driver and passengers' attentions, but they had music on and were talking, and I didn't want to wake up the two rows in front of me. I managed to wake up a co-worker, and they looked and saw what I was seeing, agreed that it was strange, and went back to sleep. We got closer to the objects and I thought maybe they were a series of three towers, but then I couldn't explain the fourth and possible fifth. I lost sight of them shortly after we got off the toll road, when we entered a very wooded, piney area. I had watched them for a long time.
