|3 bright lights sighted rising in the sky then disappearing.
This is to submit an incident report by myself and my wife last night (approximately 11:00 PM, June 30th, 2013) in Victoria BC , Canada.
My family and myself were having a BBQ , then later an open fire pit in our backyard when this incident happened.
My wife and myself were siting facing south when we spotted 3 bright stars (lights possibly, we compared the stars/lights to the brightest planet we saw that night and they were a little bit brighter but not twinkling). The 3 lights were in a triangle with one of the pointed ends facing down towards the earth. Then all 3 lights (in complete unison) started moving slowly towards the sky, they then slowly faded out and disappeared.
From where we were siting, the triangle of lights were in the sky starting at about 25 degrees , then rose to about just under 40 degrees before disappearing. The size of the triangle was approximately the equivalent of at least 5-6 full moons in the night sky (it was fairly large).
This happened at about 11:00PM on June 30th, 2013 and lasted for just under 1 minute.
I have a wife and 2 children and run and Information Technology company here in Victoria.
This is the first time in my life that I have seen something that, up to this point, my wife or myself cannot explain.
We are very curious to know what exactly we were looking at last night.
