Duration:10-15 minutes
My friends and I saw three lights that resembled bright red stars rearranging themselves in the northern sky.

Two of my friends and I were driving in my friend's car, and in the sky to the north we saw three intense red lights. To me, they looked almost exactly like stars, only bright red. I've only taken an Astronomy 100 class, so I don't know too much about those kinds of things, but I couldn't think of any possible explanation for what I saw.

The red lights were moving, but , rather than actually moving to another place, they were more or less moving around in the same area of the sky rearranging their shape. For a while they were arranged like a triangle, then a straight line, then a triangle again.

We tried calling other people- my friend called his girlfriend in Champaign, IL- but nobody else saw anything.

((NUFORC Note: We suspect that the date of the incident may have been September 30, 2005. Please see other reports. PD))
