Shape: Triangle
Duration:30 seconds
Large Triangle sighted over L.A

At approx 8:30 pm on Sat, Oct 11 2008, Noticed what I assumed to be an airliner with landing lights on and travelling east to west. (from direction of South Pasadena and toward Hollywood/Los Feliz area of Los Angeles).

As it passed just south of my position, I realized it was not a plane but an equilateral triangle with a bright white light at each of the three points. Each light was facing downward rather than forward along the line of flight. Each light was very bright but easily seen to be circular in shape with no glare.

Most notable was that the lights were just as visible as the craft was moving away from my position. This is when I realized fully that this was not a plane as there was no tail- no navigation lights and the three lights were obviously not illuminating the way ahead! There was no sound.
