3 stationary orange lights in a triangle just above horizon.

I had just got home to my apartment on Thanksgiving afternoon, around dusk, after spending it with a married couple friend of mine. I got out of my car in my apartment parking lot, looked toward the west and saw 3 glowing orange lights just above the horizon. The 3 lights made a vertical triangle. At first I thought they were 3 helicopters flying in formation moving across the sky but then realized they were not moving at all and were completely silent. Thinking logically, I then thought they were a radio tower but I knew of only one radio tower in the immediate vicinity about mile away and at that moment, it could be clearly seen 90 degrees to my right. I looked around the parking lot to see if anyone else saw the same thing I was seeing but I did not see anyone else. After about 5 minutes of staring at this thing, one by one, the orange lights just flickered off like 3 candles. I was looking towards the west during dusk so it could possibly be a sunset atmospheric phenomenon (I believe there was a high overcast cloudy sky that day). However, I had never seen anything like those 3 orange lights prior to, nor since, that day.
