|5 very bright objects in triangular formation moving from western horizon to eastern horizon at very low,fast pace
At about 12:30 am, my family and I on a weekend vacation at our mountain camp saw from the western horizon over the mountains appear 5 large, very bright objects moving at a very fast speed. These objects were pretty small when first appearing but as they raced east over our head they became very bright as they dissapeared over the eastern horizon past the mountain. They were moving at an unbelievable speed and were in the shape of a triangle, one very bright in the center, 2 spaced side by side behind it, and two more spaced wider in the back. I have seen meteors in the past, maybe these were a broken up meteor, but they were moving at a steady pace not to far from the ground. probably 10-20 miles up. We are from erie, pa and our camp is located off of route 46, 8 miles past smethport pa on route to emporium pa. IT is located between the small boroughs of colegrove and betula in south east mckean county pa.
