Location: Channahon, IL
Shape: Triangle
Duration:1-2 Minutes
Right Triangle

I was sitting outside with my parents at about 10:30 on June 10. We were watching the stars. When I noticed three stars that had been sitting in the same spot all night start to move across the sky at a constant pace, then stop for a few seconds, then they would move up the sky, stop, then move across the sky. This continued for one to two minutes before the objects were completely out of my view. I cannot really say if it was one big craft, or three smaller crafts, but they formed a perfect right triangle, and moved at the same speed, and stopped at the same time the entire length of the event. My parents tried to write them off as satelites moving across the sky, but we all know that satelites don't form perfect geometeric shapes, and stop in random spots across the sky, and more so with a satelites they need to be constantly moving to stay in orbit. Now the object or objects never really passed close to the ground, the entire time they maintained a pretty high altitude, and I did not have a pair of binoculars handy to closely examine it, so I could not tell if there were smaller lights around the three main lights.
