I own a Telescope as of a few days ago, tonight was the first night it was clear since I bought it, anyway I as I looked off to the north I saw two very bright Gold lights, they seemed to be hoovering in the sky, I looked at them for a moment and thought to myself, that is very strange. Because I knew they were not suposed to be there.So I figured they were just planes and went back to star gazing. A minute later, I would guess,I looked over the house and saw one of the objects coming over the house, at a slow rate of speed. I had my telescope fixed on the Pleiades, I noticed the object was passing across the path of the Pleiades. Then I grabbed my 10x50 binoculars to get a better look at the object, once I got them up to my eyes I saw that there were three bright gold colored lights with one red slow flashing light in the center. As it continued moving slowly from the northeast to the southwest with the binoculrs I could clearly see it was triangular in shape,there were no stars visible through the objet.I took the binoculars away from my eyes again and I saw going in the same direction three other objects, only these I could distinctly tell were either planes or jets. Then I looked back in the direction of the triangular object and it was not to be seen anywhere. I have no idea what happened to it, it was just gone. I have never saw anything like this, I see planes and jets everyday and this was not what I witnessed tonight. As for the second object I mentioned I never saw it again, it never came over the house like the other, it must have took off in a different direction.All I can say is that what ever it was gave me a strange feeling and it was not a Airplane or a jet.
