Triangle formation of 3 objects traveling east in earth orbit.

I was looking at andromada through binnoculars and saw 3 objects traveling towards the east in a triangular formation. They appeared as orbital objects that looked like satelites. The objects did not blink and did not appear to be aircraft. As they traveled toward the east they faded out about a third of the distance to the horizon.

I could not see the objects with naked eyes and they were about 1/2 degree apart. They crossed just north of andromada at 22:14 cdt. Brightness when I spoted them would have been about -5 to -6. I think they may have been brighter traveling from the west. It was not one object as I could see stars in the middle of the formation.

((NUFORC Note: We suspect the formation of three U. S. Navy N.O.S.S. satellites. PD))
