Around 11p.m. on 1/31 i was looking in the direction of Fountain/Fort Carson and saw three lights, which where in the same pattern as Orions belt. I watched for about five minutes. The lights were stationary and spread to far apart to be a plane. They remain light for a few minutes until the light furthest to the left slowly disappeared, then suddenly came back in the same place, then again disappeared. Then theres was only two lights remaining lit and stationary, until a few moments later another light lit up but was on the other side, so now it was furthest right. They stayed lit for about a minute or so then one by one they disappeared. I thought they might b flares but from what i know flares will descend, these didnt. I looked to see if i could find info on flares they remain stationary but only found that they contain metal to burn hotter while a parachute slowly brings them down but the heat from the metal burning extends the hang time since heat rises. I know for a fact it was not an airplane or helicopter; no movement, the distance between them wouldnt match, and they were too bright from the distance i was. A flare seems to be the most plausible but there things that said otherwise. Anyone else see them? Or anyone have any idea what they could be; any info on this?
