Summary : 3 bright red lights clustered together, at first thought airplane, no running lights or no sound, flew over Outlook Wa. and headed for Hanford.

I was driving my truck, going to Toppenish Wa. just passed Outlook Wa. and in the southwest I saw 3 bright red lights clustered together, for about 30 sec. I kept driving, I stop the truck, got out, I watch the 3 clustered lights as it headed northeast and it started to gain altitude, I thought a first this was a airplane or helicopter, but it made no sound or no running lights, very little traffic at 12:35 am. Speed was about 35 to 40 mph, then, it started picking up speed, at about that time it was over Outlook Wa. About 80 sec. had passed, I watch it as it headed for Hanford Wa. a total of about 5 min. had passed since I first saw the ufo, I was about to lose sight of it, the lights started to pulsate, the lights were very bright now as they pulsated. then I lost sight of it. I'm guessing it was about 30 miles away.the radio and tv tower lights near Yakima Wa. is about 25 miles and I could see them very clearly
