2200hrs myself,wife,daughter and here friend spotted three bright objects to the SW of our home. When first sighted the objects were spotted by my self and pointed out all involved. We watched for 15 - 20 min. During that time we used Bino's and Iphone's w/ Skyview app, plus my star "whiz" wheel. All in the group were slightly excited and interested. At 1st I thought it was 3 stars awfully close, But after watching for 5 min. they elevated 15 degrees. Much faster than earths rotation. After 3 to 4 more mins.the object farthest to south changed its direction to due south while 2 of the objects on the northern end of the formation stay on a course of SW.We lost sight of the objects after 5 more mins.
