Shape: Triangle
Duration:15 min
three red lights forming a triangle. no sound. drifted . turned into a small white light dissapeared left a stream of sparks

when we got to the beach at the bay my wife said "is that a sattelite"? I looked up and realized it was 10 times brighter than any star I've seen and it drifted very slowly( no sound). Upon closer look it was three red lights in the shape of a triangle at least 30K feet high. It was clear against the backing stars that it was moving VERY slow...we did'nt see the begining but after about 15 minutes the lights began to pulse and fade. it then became one white light bursting into what appeared to be a stream of sparks like a fire works display would. This was no fire work display. I am a thirty five year old business owner and i have NEVER seen anything like this.There were six of us on that beach and we all agreed it was nothing we had ever seen. One guy tried his hardest to explain it away but after about ten minutes che gave in also.
