Three orange/red lights travelling together from the south in an a gentle arc toward the north and then heading east.. very hard to gauge altitude. May have been in orbit or very high. two were closer together and the third perhaps 10x further apart. very strange motion. very slow travel for any altitude, slow for an orbit like a satellite similar to a helicopter but at a very high altitude, no navigation lights flashing, constant orange/red glow. after 4 or 5 minutes of watching the higher object of the pair travelling closer together discharged/fired a beam or missile or something downward that streaked very quickly, faster than something dropped or a missile but lightening quick which disappeared below horizon.
