|3 Lights Appear in Sky over Florence
I was driving home from work and as I rounded a curve I noticed a light above the tree line that had a slightly orange hue to it. At first I thought it was an airplane turning for approach as the light didnt appear to be moving. As I continued to watch, suddenly another light of the same color/brightness appeared to move out from inside the first light and slightly down and to the left. A second later an additional light appeared and moved down and to the right making a distinct triangular shape. There was still no apparent movement of the objects through the sky. (by this time I had slowed my vehicle into the median to watch) After sitting in the sky for about 5 seconds in this formation, all three lights faded out together just like a light bulb being turned off. I frequently observe meteors from time to time at night and these lights displayed characteristics that were unlike any of the many meteors I have ever witnessed.
