Duration:3 to 4 min.
|We saw 3 illuminated objects in a 3 point formation cross the night sky.
I have watched the nite sky for many years in WA. state ( sputnik as a kid with my dad ) now I watch with my son (10 yrs old)On warm nites we try to see 6 satelites in orbit before going inside.It usually takes around an hour.This is the THIRD nite we have sighted these objects!! They move slowly from WNW to SSE .They move in a 3 point triangular formation with a leader up front and 2 following about 2 finger width apart with my arm out-stretched.They do not seem to hold perfect formation at times deviating slightly from position.They just look like moving stars untill they enter the southern sky where they fade and then disapear.Just look up around 10:30 to see them.
