Three bright orange/red distinct lights of UFO's spotted in skies in western New York on 8/12/2011

On Saturday, August 12, 2011 at approximately 22:40 EST, my sister pounded on my front window of my house to get my attention to come outside. She seen a UFO! I went out without shoes to see not just one, but three and yelled for my son, who is 21, to come outside also.

The UFOs appeared to be lights high up in the sky that were orange/red in color. Two preceded the third and third appeared larger in brightness.

They seemed to be heading east though moving upward. The two disappeared, then the third. This seemed to take several minutes.

My sister took a photo with her cell phone of the first one she seen (the other two had been blocked by the trees initially) however, the photo does not look like the same as what we had seen.

Also, of note was that my nephew said he and his neighbors seen one two nights earlier. It was that night and then again the night of our sighting that I noticed helicopters flying in my area well after midnight. Even though this occurred near the Buffalo Niagara International Airport, helicopters are normally not heard so late at night.
