Fueled truck returning home 7:45PM heading in a easterly direction. Observed 3 bright objects that appeared to be over Lake Michigan. Objects appeared to be in tight formation. Weather was overcast and dark. Overcast ceiling approximate 1500ft +-. Objects had a bright strawberry color. I than observed a fourth object which appeared to be hoovering along the lake shore moving very slowly in a SE direction separate from the original 3 objects. Extremely bright strawberry color. NO NAVIGATION lights observed. Pulled over turned truck off and opened window. No sound heard, unusual I thought I'd hear something being so close estimating 1/2 mile or closer. Arrived home entered yard observed the first 3 object climbed what I think was a vertical direction very quickly losing sight. lost visibility of the 4th object in the tree lines and neighbors roof. After going inside I went directly onto computer and checked the live radar for my area and saw no aircraft in the vicinity of my city. I've never seen aircraft with such a odd color, I'm 50 and grew up next to USCG air group. I also served in the USMC and never observed such a bright strange strawberry light. Max time from entering house to reviewing radar perhaps 1 to 1 1/2 minutes.
