Duration:20 minutes
Orange lights flying low over the river in Monroe Michigan

I saw a bright light come down from the sky that looked like a shooting star but it was heading in a downward direction. It had a tail with a few little lights behind it.

The light went away when it reached near the horizon, a few minutes later a low, slow flying orange light could be seen upstream (west) on the river i was near.

Looking through a pair of binoculars, I could see three lights in a triangle formation. The triangle wasn't perfect, the top light was a bit more towards the right, which was also the direction it seemed to be heading. The light was so bright at some points, it could be seen reflecting on the river.

It slowly traveled east over some farmland, and disappeared from my view behind trees.

I continued to observe the sky and saw a similar if not the same object in the eastern sky heading west. Again it was flying low and slow over fields and disappeared from my sight behind the same grouping of trees.
