Shape: Triangle
Duration:30 seconds
4 lights over Muskegeon Unity Fest.

I was sitting with family & friends at the Unity Christian Music Festival on Saturday evening listening to music. At one point towards the end of the concert, I was looking skyward due to the meteor shower that would be visible later in the night when I saw 4 faint lights moving together in a Northern direction. 3 formed a triangle & the 4th was to the right... after a few seconds, the lone light started moving in an erratic pattern, then would come back to the side of the triangle.

At first I thought it could be a drone taking pictures of the festival, but once the erratic movements of the 4th light started, I knew I was seeing something odd.

Shorty thereafter, at least 30 Chinese lanterns became visible several miles to the East, then within 5 minutes, a helicopter took off & circled over towards the lanterns.

There were many things to see that evening in the sky, but the 4 lights I saw were quite odd. They were about the same illumination & size of most of the stars that evening. The sky was clear that night as well, which allowed for clear sight.
