Location: Cedar Hill, TX
Shape: Formation
Duration:3 minutes
Large triangle formation of white lights slowly move across sky, as one light crosses behind its path.

I was looking at the sky with binoculars while learning to use my new telescope. At 4:37 a.m., I looked in the southwestern portion of the sky (approximately 11 o'clock high) and observed a triangle formation of white lights moving in a downward arc direction from west to east. They looked exactly like a constellation of stars but were moving through the sky, comparable in size to the Big Dipper, and could not be detected with the naked eye. During the first few seconds of my observation, another white light passed just behind the formation's path moving northwest to southeast. This single light moved faster than the triangle formation and continued passed it at a steady speed and direction. My first impression was that the single light was a satelite. I kept my attention on the triangle formation, noting that the lights moved in precise syncrinicity with each other, until disappearing behind the horizen at 4:40 a.m. I should also point out that I was standing less than 1/4 mile from four television/radio transmission towers.
