Location: Iowa City, IA
Shape: Light
Duration: 12 minutes
Characteristics: There were lights on the object
A group of red lights flying across the sky, rising from the horizon one at a time,increasing in altitude and disappearing out of view.

I saw a 2 red lights close together and a third not far behind. They were moving as a plane would move, about the same speed as a plane would move across the sky, but there were 3 together, and then another came, and another, and another. They seemed to rise from the horizon in a diagonal line, climbing in altitude until they disappeared. And they just kept coming from the horizon. That was what was so striking and unusual about it.

There is a YouTube video from 12/25/2010 that describes EXACTLY the same event that I witnessed in 2016. There were many more red lights in the 12/25/2013 YouTube video than what I witnessed. But the event was exactly the same.
