|Before seeing this formation we saw two flashes of light at our zenith, and they were not iridium flares.
My girlfriend and I were out star gazing at the local high school when we noticed a satellite traveling from south to north. We decided to watch it because we have been noticing strange occurrences lately with these lights this month. Upon observation, we saw two other "satellites" trailing on both sides behind the brightest light, almost in a triangular formation, then the light to the southwest of the one in front surpassed the brightest light to the north to form a more linear formation. These lights then disappeared over the northern horizon from our vantage point.
