Shape: Triangle
Duration:2 minutes
Saw three objects flying in triangular formation over the Ocean, OR it was one large craft. Monday, March 6th, 4:30am

My girlfriend and I went to Ocean Shores, Washington over the weekend. We stayed at a hotel right next to the Ocean. At 4:30am on Monday, March 6th, I was out on the deck looking at the stars, and trying to hear what the drunk neighbors were yelling about.. Anyway, I went back to looking up at the sky, and at approximately 2-o-clock my position (NorthWest), out over the Ocean I saw what appeared to be a slow moving star or satellite...Cool. No big deal I thought. You see satellites all the time in the night sky. But what made this sighting take on a whole new dimension was that there was another one slightly cocked at an angle trailing it, but at a "fixed" position. So I thought, "2 satellites travelling together? Do they do that?" Then, I noticed yet ANOTHER satellite, this one trailing both the first two, but at the SAME moving, fixed position. So all of a sudden I realized I was now looking at either: A) Three craft or satellite, moving together in perfect triangular formation -or- B) ONE very large craft, shaped like a backwards triangle... This is what I saw... W -----> N First seen "satellite" +< Third seen "satellite" +< Second seen "Satellite" +< The thing I need to find out now is if satellites do travel in fixed formation relative to one another. If so, then that's what I saw. If NOT, well then...
