Duration:2 hours+
At about 8:30pm - 8:45pm on Christmas Night, I stepped out into my back yard and looked at the western sky. Through the tall trees in our backyard I could see a bright orange orb in the sky. I went out to the middle of the back yard to get a better view of the sky, unobstructed by trees, and noticed two more bright orange orbs that matched it. Together they formed a scalene triangle formation - the two lights to the left were basically one above the other, and the one to the right was further away and sort of centered between the other two. They were not blinking or moving, they were stationary and glowing the exact same color and were brighter than anything else in the sky. I called for my husband to come out and look at them. Clouds were coming in, but he was able to witness one of them for a minute or two before it disappeared behind the clouds.

I went back in with my family and started talking about what I had seen, and my Mom said she had seen them about two hours earlier when she was coming over to my home. She lives on a hill about 1.5 miles away, and had clearly seen them, unobstructed, as she drove down the hill on the way to our home. She described the exact same three stationary orange glowing objects in the exact same place and in the same triangular position in the western sky.

I initially thought the objects may have been lanterns, but there is no way they were if she had seen the exact same objects two hours prior to me seeing them.

I also wondered if they were planets, but they were the same size, same color and glowing, not twinkling.
