Triangular formation of what looked like stars in shape and bightness

was looking at a constilation in center of the sky when 3 of the stars started moving to the southeast in an ununiform path until it disappeared into the light polution about a a third of the way up the eastern horizon. there was no bliking or change in the light intensity. during the movement there was no straying from the formation.

((NUFORC Note: We suspect that the sighting was caused by the three satellites frequently seen flying in formation. They are thought to be U. S. Navy "NOSS" satellites. Please see other reports from Wisconsin for this date. PD))
