I was recently in California visiting my son in an area 50 miles northeast of LA known as the high desert. We were outside with his telescope having some fun at about 10:00 PM when we saw three objects travelling in a delta formation at a very high altitude. They were not jets. Just single points of white light that must has been hundreds of miles apart all traveling very fast in a west to east direction. If I held my arm out, the distance between the objects was a 1.5" to 2" spread of my fingers. Do you know of any satellites that meet this description?]

((NUFORC Note: The report may describe the three satellites that are frequently reported to NUFORC. We suspect the satellites are part of the U. S. Navy "N.O.S.S." program, under which a triplet of satellites can be seen in the night skies, flying in unwavering formation, for several weeks at a time. However, that is only a guess. PD))
