Duration:3 min
Triangle fades into a tear in space

My brother and I were camping on the Rubicon trail off icehouse road near Loon Lake, there where clear skies that night, when we were star gazing, we saw three, lights in the shape of a triangle, I pick up my Binoculars, i follow the lights for about 3 to five min, the lights were about the same brightness as the stars around, so it was hard to spot, but because it was moving very slowly we able to track it. There was no sound what so ever coming from it. My brother told me if i could see the stars between the lights, I seem too be able to see the stars but it seem blurry when viewing the light between the three point of lights on each corner point. as it moved forward i can tell that the lights on the back (two on back one in front)were close together , to form a narrow type of triangle, not a true pyramid shape. It disappear, not like vanish but like it went behind something. Like the front of the triangle disappeared first and then the rest followed, like it went into a hole in space slowly passing into it. Then after it was gone we saw another slow moving single light follow it and disappeared in the same spot in the sky. Shortly after that we saw anther light, orange in color, it seem to move erratic, like it was flapping, with wings we watch that disappear in another place in the sky, not like it went out of site it just seem to fade away... I do not know if it was related to what we saw.

((NUFORC Note: We suspect the witness was watching what are suspected to be N.O.S.S. satellites, which we believe are launched periodically by the U. S. Navy. They disappear when they enter the terminator, I.e. the shadow, of the Earth. Please see other report from CA for same time and date. PD))
