Three orange lights in the sky

My husband and I were driving east on Highway 60 toward the small town of Madison Lake. Just before entering city limits, I noticed two orange lights in the northeast sky. They were not blinking as airplanes do, and they were close together. They appeared to remain parallel; it almost suggested they were flying in a formation. As we continued east into town, I noticed a third orange light to my right (the southern sky). We watched this light cross our path above us, flying from south to north. At first we thought maybe it was a meteor, but the brightness was consistent. It was fast, but not super-fast, just steady. We wondered if it was joining the other two lights. By this time, the other two lights disappeared. We watched the third light for about 30 seconds to a minute before it disappeared.

The observers are college-educated professionals; one a business-owner, the other a university professor. This is our first sighting of an unidentified object. It was so strange and unexplained that I felt compelled to report it to someone.
