Driving home from town we were driving south when I noticed 3 bright lights with a red light in the center. My first guess was it was just a plane because it was in the area of an airport. I then noticed that the lights were way way brighter than most airplanes in the air around here. It descended towards the tree tops but then began to absent again. Maybe it was just an air plane but with its strange behavior I am sure it isnt an ordinary plane. The "plane" headed east towards Lansing.
