We were sitting on my deck with the family when my youngest daughter said to look at the star. It took my wife and I a moment to find it since it was so low on the horizon from my vantage point. We looked at the star for a moment and I grabbed my binoculars ,and observed it. The star appeared "normal" but in a weird location. My oldest daughter said that she was making a wish on her star. I continued to look at the "star" for a few minutes when it appeared to collapse in on itself and dissapear. I then turned to my wife , and said that was weird. She looked up and confirmed the object was gone. MY oldest daughter said that as soon as she made a wish it dissapeared. I then grabbed my binoculars and searched for the object. I could not find the star, but for a brief moment I observed 3 red lights in a verticle row. I put the binocs down , and told my wife what I saw. I tried to find it again , but it was gone. The red lights were not visible to the naked eye. In the previous nights since no star has been visible in that location. This has left me with a very uneasy feeling especially that night.
I am familiar with aircraft since we live on the approach /departure route for PIT . I have pilot experience as well.
There were no clouds or other weather issues that night. It was a clear evening with plenty of light .
