Location: Modesto, CA
Shape: Changing
Duration: 3 minutes
Characteristics: There were lights on the object
3 red lights in triangle shape change shape and fade away

At 12:04 am I was standing on my balcony facing North, listening to the New Years celebrations. I noticed in the distance three red lights. I initially assumed they were from fireworks or a nearby cell phone tower.

The lights were in a triangular shape, but appeared to be rotating counter-clockwise and backwards. The rotation made the triangle change its shape. The lights moved in a very fluid way. They were bright but at the same time appeared dim enough to possibly look like nearby stars.

At 12:06 am two of the three lights faded away. The last light remained until 12:07 until it also faded away.
