Description: We live in Maquoketa, Iowa and tonight 9/7/13 around 8:45 PM my mom came inside the house and yelled for me to come outside. She pointed out 3 bright red lights in a triangle pattern were in the northwestern part of the sky. Two of the red lights moved out of the triangle pattern for a few seconds then back into the triangle pattern. One of the red lights fizzled out then a second red light flashed white a few times then fizzled out. The 3rd red light then fizzled out. We thought that they could be Chinese lanterns, but they were way too bright. I came inside and got online to see if maybe someone else had seen them or caught them on video and reported it to the news. That is when I came across your blog with similar reports in the past in Iowa. Have they been identified or has anybody else reported them? Please let me know.
