Location: Alexandria, VA
Shape: Triangle
Saw a triangular formation of lights in the sky.

I was taking out the trash about an hour ago, and I glanced toward the sky. I saw three lights arranged in a triangle shape. Thin lights connected the three round lights. It sped across the sky faster than any plane I had ever seen. It left a kind of luminescent trail behind it that stayed in the sky for about minute before fading away. I tried to take a picture with my phone but I wasn't fast enough.

I like aviation and know a lot about planes and helicopter, especially military crafts, and this was like nothing I had seen before. It moved very fast and the lights were not blinking.
