Three white lights at high altitude in a triangle formation moving at "jet liner" speed

This is a posting that relates to a sighting that occured in West Dennis, Massachusetts, on 8/31/97, and which is listed in this database. My sighting involved a night out near the beach in Provincetown, MA, looking for satellites. I observed a triangle formation of three white lights moving at a "jet liner" speed, as if at 35,000 feet altitude, and at 50 degrees elevation or so. The lights moved across a short arc and disappeared in sequence. I was impressed by their lock-step movement, and I thought at the time that even military craft would not fly at that distance apart. This sighting may seem innocuous, except that the West Dennis case involves what I am sure is the same sort of thing. On another occasion, by the way, I was looking for satellites in Maine while on vacation and I saw a white light moving like a satellite, when it suddenly made a 90-degree turn! This happened in Aug. of 1992 near Bath, ME.
