Shape: Triangle | Duration: 2 minutes

Three points of light similar to a satelite forming a triangle gliding across rthe sky with consitant light intensity staying on courseAfter returning from a family event at my relatives last night I noticed a very clear sky which has been rare this whole summer so I grabbed my binoculars and went out into the back yard and started to scan the sky! I immediatly spotted a couple satelites and then about five minutes later looking to the Northeast I spotted three points of light forming a triangle gliding across the sky in a southeast projection staying on it's course with all three lights at the exact same intensity! I was able to view it for a full two minutes as it earily glided across the sky. I tried to see if I could see stars in the background but couldn't although it did not seem to be on a path where you could see a lot of stars and as it came up to one bright star the left light in the back lined up with that star perfectly so I could still not make out if it was a solid object! If it was a solid object it would of had to of been huge! the lights moved together as if it was one object! It appeared to move slower than most satelites I have seen and if I would of been looking North a little earlier I probaly would of gotten to view it for four minutes. This is the third time now I have seen this formation in the last three summers or years! It still is very earie to watch! I was so mesmerized by it,I failed to take the binoculars off to see if you could see it with the naked eye! I believe though that if one would of been looking I think they could of been seen! This thrird time now I noticed it was on pretty much the same course as it was last year when I saw it! I watched it until it got to far east and then the lights just faded out!((NUFORC Note: We suspect the three U. S. Navy N.O.S.S. satellites may have been the cause of the sighting. Please see other report from Ontario, Canada, for an explanation. PD))
