|Triangle formation of faint lights moving south.
Sunday evening I was stargazing in my backyard. I was seated in a lawn chair facing east. I thought detected some motion about 60 degrees above the eastern horizon. Through my binoculars I was able to discern three steady, faint lights moving in a southerly direction. The speed seemed to be faster than most high-altitude aircraft, about the speed of a LEO satelite. The lights were fixed in a triangle formation. No sound was heard. No strobes or other navigational lights were seen. They were barely visible with the naked eye. When viewed through 7x35 binoculars the formation occupied about 1/3 of the field of view.
