45 degree angled straight line of 3 dim lights with hazy aura between with no sound observed flying from north to south at 1000 ft .

On 10/18/00 at approximately 2025 hrs my 14 yoa son and I were trying to find planetary objects to look at with our telescope. I had just walked to the (front) southeast corner of the house trying to find the moon. As I was walking back to the northeast side of the house I was facing east when I saw three dim white lights in a straight line of a 45 degree angle equally spaced and without any sound fly from north to south above the houses across the street no more than a 1000 feet above ground level. I shouted to my son (his name and) Look! Both of us observed and described the same thing to include that as we watched this object we observed between the three dim lights a "fuzziness" or blurring as if the three lights were connected but the connecting material was not possible to be clearly discerned. This all took place in no more than 10 seconds. The object(s) then suddenly vanished. I am a ((profession deleted--public servant)) and ((military title)) who flew ((deleted--100+)) combat missions out of southeast asia with a top secret clearance at the time. I would not mind being contacted about this but I will not allow my name or the name of my son or family to be publicly identified. There is a small airport (Lantana) within 3-4 miles of our house to the northeast and we did notice one or two discernable aircraft lights at a distance that night in the area of the airport but not apparently involved in this incident.
