Location: Moline, IL
Shape: Triangle
Duration:1 minute
Orange/Yellowish square to triangle appeared directly over house in Moline, IL

While standing in the back yard my wife looked up and saw four (4) bright lights (all the same color - orange/yellow) sort of in a square in the sky directly above her. As it moved on the 4 lights became 3 and it looked more like a triangle. It was going North to South (which would have taken it over the Moline airport). She ran in the house as soon as she first saw it, grabbed her camera and ran back out. She snapped 3 pictures. I was about 30 seconds behind her and saw the triangle moving in the distance and then it just disappeared. We are a retired military (34 year aviation background)couple.
