3 orange lights in a delta pattern, moving north, then north-east.

As I was driving through Lafayette around 10pm on June 22nd 2013, I started to see 3 bright orange lights in a delta pattern in the sky in the direction of the moon, between clouds, south-east of where I was. It was a somewhat cloudy night, the moon was only visible on and off. At that point I was at the coordinates +40° 24' 17.18", -86° 52' 46.19". I kept driving, and the lights seemed to be moving north. I eventually stopped and got out of the car. I didn't hear any noise in the direction of these lights, and they soon disappeared from view behind trees. At that time they seemed to be moving north-east. It seemed to me that the 3 lights were from 3 individual crafts. Unfortunately I didn't have a camera with me that day. It is difficult to estimate how high these objects were in the sky or how fast they were really moving. They could have been as low as 300ft moving slowly, and as high as 3000ft, moving faster.
