Bright orange-yellow lights that had similarty to flares and appeared in various patterns.

On Jan.17, 1998, at about 7:30 pm over the skys of Schuyler Co. with heavy commercial air-traffic over head.

It started for me with a set of brilliant bright orange-yellow lights that had the similarty to flares. They moved toward each other into a stationary stance and appeared to flicker then fade-out. They would last for 5-7 secounds.

Next I observed a set of three in a trianglar pattern, followed seconds later by an intense diamond four. The lights appeared diamond in shape.

There was no sound when lights were observed.
