I was with my son and friend flying quadcopters at a soccer field.I looked up and saw what I thought was two planes in a refueling formation. After I watched it for a bit I realized that it was a solid craft. It also had an escort. It was night so I couldn't tell what type of plane the escort was. I watched it until it flew out of sight.I do think this is probably a military craft because of the escort. I don't know what the difference in altitude between the two was but if they were at a similar height then the triangle was gigantic. Imagine a fly sitting next to a bald eagle. That was about the size difference. The craft was big enough that it would have covered a full moon. It wasn't an equilateral triangle, it was isosceles. I am a member of MUFON. This whole time it never occurred to me to take out my phone and snap some photos. Now I'm kicking myself for it.
