4th of July, Pittsburgh PA - downtown on "South Shore" for fireworks. After fireworks were complete we were leaving Station Square, a plaza of restaurants, shops and hotels on the waterfront and that's were the lights came into view. The lights appeared in the East, fireworks had been set off in the West. The lights were over the hills to the east/southeast. I observed a "string" of yellow/orange/red lights with a cluster of lights at one end. I pulled out my phone and told my family to look up. They also saw the lights. I stopped walking and took as many pictures with the camera in my phone as possible. I would walk a few feet and stop to take a picture, the lights appeared to be moving also. The string of lights appeared to descend behind the hills except a few as I walked and stopped. I could not continually watch the lights while I walked. The cluster disappeared and only a couple remained and seemed smaller than what I originally observed. There were thousands of people going to the same parking lot as we were but no one seemed to be observing what was going on in the sky. I kept telling my husband and kids to look up. The last observation I made was of a triangle shape of three lights. It was moving North in line behind a couple of the smaller circular lights. I stood still while the triangle passed overhead. The three lights moved as if attached to a structure, slow moving, silent. The lights moved at the same time, together. I told my husband to look up again and I said " that looks like those lights are attached to some type of craft but I could not see any body of a craft, just dark between the lights. No stars were visible, Pittsburgh and surrounding areas had been under cloud cover for at least seven days. No rain, no lightning at time of observation. No planes or other conventional aircraft were observed at the same time as the lights. Photos attached, enlarge to view lights.
