mi nombre es ((name deleted)).
sucedio despues de los fireworks,yo y 3 personas mas nos sentamos junto al fuego en el backyard,a conversar.

de repente mire al cielo y vi un conjunto de 3 estrellas,que formaban un triangulo...nunca habia visto 3 estrellas moverse en conjunto en una misma direcccion formando un triangulo.

en medio de estas 3 estrella se podia ver..que esa area era mas oscura que el cielo de fondo.como si fuera alguna clase de sombra,podia ver como olas demas estrellas desaparecian al paso de estas 3 luces(estrellas).

afortunadamente mis amigos entre los que esta una chica de 13 anos vieron esa figura.

ok...si alguien sabe del tema puede explicarme si es posible que 3 estrellas forme un triangulo y viajen en la misma direccion formando una delta en el cielo.

he visto estrella moverse...y hasta creo que son satelites orbitando..pero sera posible que tres satelites en formacion delta viajen a la misma direccion y auna velocidad notable.he escuchado sobre ovnis..y haora me llama la atencion ..si alguien puede explicarme cientificamente la posibilida que satelites orbiten nuestro planeta formando un triangulo viajando de north to south..por favor escribame a ((e-address deleted)) please.

((NUFORC Note: We have requested a translation of the text above. We believe the witness may have observed what are thought to be three satellites, which periodically are launched by the U. S. Navy, and which orbit the Earth for several weeks, maintaining their positions relative to one another quite precisely. They are thought to be part of the U. S. Navy "NOSS" system of surveillance satellites, and they are reported to us frequently. PD))

190 Dscripcion: At first I thought it was a plane, but speed and movement of the object made me doubt, since in Colombia there aren't any supersonic planes. At first I saw, at a great distance, three lights forming a triangle, but far from each other; definitely it was not a plane; what was it? I don't
know, but it impressed me.

190 Descripcion: My name is ((name deleted)). It happened after the fireworks; I and 3 other persons sat near the fire in the backyard to talk. Sudenly I looked up at the sky and saw a group of three stars forming a triangle. I had never seen 3 stars forming a triangle moving together in the same direction. In the middle of these 3 stars one could see an area darker than the background sky, as though it were a type of shadow, and I could see the stars vanish when these 3 lights(stars) went by. Fortunately my friends, among whom there was a 13 year old girl, saw this figure.

OK, if somebody knows the subject, tell me if it is possible that 3 stars form a triangle and travel in the same direction forming a delta in the sky. I have seen stars move, and I even think they are satellites in orbit, but would it be possible that three satelites in delta formation travel in the same direction at notable speed? I have heard about ovnis, and now it calls my attention. If someone can explain
scientifically the possibility that satelites orbit our planet forming a triangle and travelling from
north to south, please write to me at (e-address deleted)
