Red/Orange Lights Seen In The Sky Over Nanaimo British Columbia

Date:  March 18, 2012
Time:  Approx: 10:10 p.m.
Number of witnesses: 3
Number of Objects: 3
Shape of Objects: ✶
Full Description of Event/Sighting: Just after 10:00 p.m., (CBC News had just started) I am on Holly Ave in Nanaimo. Slowly, over the rooftops/tree line looking west, two orange lights begin to rise in the sky.
They are not balls of light, but seemed more like a Christmas tree star ✶. These two reddish/orange lights casually rose in parallel, with one slightly ahead of the other. They rose steadily to a 10:30 position.
The night sky was clear with just a few bands of light cloud, but as the first of these objects appeared to encounter the cloud, it disappeared from view. About a minute later, the second one faded from view, but not inside the sparse clouds.
The way the objects moved, reminded me of firework flares.
About a minute (maybe two) after the first two lights disappeared, a third rose up from the same westerly position. It reached about that same elevation and then faded.
