Location: Rio Oso, CA
Shape: Triangle
Duration:about 10 seconds
I saw a bright triangluar object that split into two objects and went in opposite directions.

I got home and my sister, father and son went into the house. I was pulling a bag of clothes out of the car. I just happend to look up at the stars as I often Do. We live out in a rural area where the stars are easy to see and shooting stars can be seen from time to time. I noticed a bright triangualr object just north of Orion. It caught my attention because of the size and shape. It was about an inch on all three sides(juding by - at arms length). I shut the car door and the the object flared shortly and split into two equal sized objects. The two objects then headed quickly in opposite directions. One headed North the other headed South. The one headed North satyed visible for no more than one or one-and-one-half seconds. The object headed South was visible for as long as three seconds. The whole incedent took no more than 10 seconds.
