5 orange/red, burning lights in zig-zag formationWent outside to drop trash off at dumpster and saw 5 burning lights in the sky facing Southeast. They were incredibly bright with an orange/red color; almost like they were burning.There were five out them in a vertical zig-zag formation. They almost looked like the number "3" in the sky. They were suspended and not moving. Over the course of watching them, they flickered out, from top to bottom.We got a picture but it was when there were only 3 left, and it's not that great. Tried to get video to no avail.
