Summary : At 20:15 Pacific time on 2/23/96, while out on balcony with telescope, looked west, south west,and saw 3 triangular shaped objects with an pale orangish color. No lights. No sound.

While out with telecsope on 2/23/96, looking at Orion nebula, I glanced up from the eye peice, and towards the west, south west, saw 3 triangular objects.They were a pale orangish color, coming east, north east, from the Santa Monicaarea. They made no sound, and moved fairly fast. Stayed in tight formation, one at point, two trailing. No visible detail.I thought it might be fighter planes, like a Stealth fighter, since president Clinton was in Santa Monica that night, but there was no sound. I thought perhaps the color was due to sun reflecting off the craft,but the Stealth are black, not bare aluminium, and no sun reflects at 20:15 in February.
