Location: Longwood, FL
Shape: Triangle
Duration:10 minutes
A bright, triangular series of white lights, which rose slowly, then suddenly accelerated and was gone.

I was stargizing with a friend, pointed out the north star, then turned around and saw an intensely bright shape hovering over a series of homes (though it could have been farther away.) I called my friend, and by looks it could not have been an airplane or a helicopter. It had three incredibly bright white lights arranged one on top, two on bottom (like a triangle). It was stationary for five minutes, then slowly rose up, then to the left. It did it again, this time a bit faster, and twice more. It was very smooth in motion. It suddenly accellerated to the left, and when it passed by us, I could discern a red strobe between the lights. We watched... and then it sharply accelerated and was gone.
