I saw 4 different aircrafts within a period of 15 min, all were square, low flying, had 3 round lights, and fast flashing red lights.

On Monday night, November 16, 1998, driving home to Penn Hills, down Butler St. heading towards Allegheny River Blvd. I saw 3 round bright lights rather low in the sky going towards Pittsburgh. They were flying in line with the river on my left side. At first thought it was a low flying airplane headed for an approach for the Pittsburgh airport. As I looked up again, and the plane seemed to be sitting still. Then it seemed to move again towards Pittsburgh. That's when I noticed the second one further to my left. They had the same 3 lights and small twinkling red lights. I pulled over three times to watch these objects. As we passed by in the night I went further on down the road, not looking back, but wondering what could stand still. I then decided to call the local TV station to ask if they could find out if there was anything unusual flying to the airport, but they didn't seem to care. Then I called 911, they didn't seem to care. I then called information to get the airport's number to see if they had anything on radar unusual, that might put my mind at ease. I then saw a third and forth objects, both with 3 brighth round lights, and flashing red ones. When I called the TV station back, they suggested I saw a helicopter. These were not moving like helicopters and I heard no engine noises at all. The third and forth moved theh same way as the first two. I looked up and saw a square outline with the three bright lights, and red lights at the corners. The forth object then hoovered close to me. Then it left. This all took place between 10-15 min.
