three lights like stars in the twilight after a fireworks display. The lights were uniform in color and brightness. Strange movement.

UFO Sighting Report On July 3rd, 2013 at approximately 10:30 PM, I was gathered with 4 other family members in Hixson, Tennessee after viewing the fireworks display provided by Camp Columbus. It was an overcast evening and the display was inspiring. The flying objects that we could not identify were southwest from our vantage point on the tent camping site 93 of Chester Frost Park. Two were on the same plain of approximately 40 degrees up from the horizon and one was higher at approximately 45 degrees. The sun had gone down about an hour earlier so it is possible that the objects were reflecting the twilight. The first thing that appeared odd to me was the uniform brightness. Their color was also a uniform glowing orange. There was no reference for distance but it appeared that the higher orb was at a greater distance. It was stationary but the lower two were closer together and moved erratically as if re-positioning very easily. I was watching very closely and my son in law was wor! king on getting his phone to take a video. He could not see the objects on his phone display but he did record video where they might be found on a computer monitor. I believe that the smoke from the display passed between the lower objects and our perspective but others in our party say that they instantly disappeared. We all agreed that it seemed that the objects were admiring the fireworks display.
