|A grouing of 3 lights forming a triangle, one very large light at the top with 2 small ones at the base. Lights remained stationary.
At 5:00 AM I took my dogs outside to do their business, the sky was totally clear and full of stars. I live quite a ways from the city and there is very little light polution so I often look at the stars. I was gazing at the stars and was drawn to the ENE sky by an extremely large light. My first reaction was that it was the headlight of an airplane especially since it was in the direction of Cleveland Hopkins airport. The main light was so large it amazed me, It was the size of a cars headlight when viewed in oncoming traffic. Along with the main light were two other lights more star sized, with the main light they formed a triangle with the two smaller lights at the bottom. I watched this grouping of lights for at least 15 minutes trying to figure out what they were. I concluded they were not airplanes as they did not move or change size. The lights did not twinkle like stars so I thought possibly they were planets, but the odd arrangement and the extremely large light did not make sense. I often look at the stars and am familuar with most of the constellations so to see this in the sky continues to puzzle me.
