Three bright Orange lights, western sky, in triad, disappearing one by one, at about 6:29 pm EST in Jackson MI
I was driving home from 5:30 pm Mass at St. Mary on Saturday Jan. 15, on my customary route, when I saw 3 very bright big orange-colored light objects in the air in the western sky at about tree level or above. I stopped my car at intersection (Franklin + Jackson), opened car door, tried to take picture, but one of the three had already disappeared; I took picture anyways with cell phone and remained at intersection; another of the lights disappeared within seconds; the third light was extinguished soon after as I then turned left *south), it was not there at next intersection.
I do study and watch the sky at night, and know a little about planets vs. stars, but the color and size of these objects was unusual, if ephemeral.
I have the photo of the two.
Thanks,
