|Traingle formation of lights in the night sky.
On Saturday, July 28, 2007, at approx. 22:20, I was sitting outside visiting with a friend. My friend was smoking a cigarette while I was sitting enjoying the summer evening.
Suddenly my eye caught what I thought was just a satellite. I soon realized that there was three of them traveling in an off set triangle. I immediately thought of the NOSS satellites, however one of them suddenly shot off! About the time I thought it couldn’t get any stranger, the other two stopped and just sat there! While we were watching them just sit there, we noticed an opposite direction satellite go zooming by, not sure if it was related or not. The other strange thing is that a few moments later we noticed a military jet appear to be travelling towards their direction.
Since they were so dimly lit, and we never did see them start moving again, we eventually lost sight of them.
I have been a professional firefighter for almost 16 years, I think I have a pretty good idea about what is normal in the night sky as I have also worked in the aerospace industry (as a firefighter) so I know aircraft. The location of this sighting was directly over the Grant County International Airport, and was travelling in a southern direction.
