Shape: Formation
Duration:5 minutes
Myself and approximately 15 others witnessed three lights moving in a triangle shaped formation for about 5-10 minutes.

Early Sunday morning on 9/5/99, at about 1:30am a large group of friends were camping on a lake in Northern Wisconsin. It's a very remote area - so much so that we were the only people on the entire lake. Someone noticed lights in the sky and yelled for the rest of us to come and take a look. About 15 of us left the warmth of the fire to go and see. What we saw were three bright lights, very high in the sky - and traveling in a triangle shaped formation. They were about as bright as venus gets or brighter than most all of the surrounding stars. We noticed stars in-between the objects so it definitely seemed like three distinct crafts. They traveled together, but the shape of the triangle would change from equilateral, to right, and back again. We watched the objects for about 5-10 minutes as they traveled in a north to south direction. Nobody had binoculars, so all we could make out was the bright white glow they made. Based on the height, we guessed the objects must have been very large though. My brother, holding a flashlight, tried doing the SOS signal to the objects. About 30 seconds after he started flashing them, the three objects suddenly blinked out and never reappeared.
