3 red lights in the sky were spotted in the distance to the north as i was exiting my car. i noticed them because they were in the direction i was facing as i exited my car, and it was striking to see the lights grouped together. they were in a roughly triangular formation, with 1 above the other 2. they were about the size of an aspirin and appeared to be in the time it took for me to move to the side (right/east) to look again, 1 of the lights had vanished. the remaining 2 moved downward slightly and to the right (east). their motion was smooth and slow. i resumed moving east to try to track them, but i looked away briefly. when i looked for them again, the remaining 2 lights had vanished as well. the experience made me feel curious and maybe a little spooked.
