Location: Paradise, CA
Shape: Formation
Duration:4 minutes
There were three steady star blue lights in a triangular formation traveling from north to south before midnight

Being that the sky is very clear in Paradise, several nights a week I go outside look at the stars. But it's not necessarily the stars I'm looking at. I'm looking for moving objects. I've had an Interest in astronomy for at least 25 years.

I'm 37 now. Well anyway looking for moving objects all these nights finally paid off.

I was standing out there in the backyard looking up in the general northern direction.

It wasn't long when I saw three steady,star blue lights. They were in a triangular formation (figure 1.) traveling slowly to a slight south-east direction. light->o / fig. 1 /\ / \ light->o \ light->o
