Location: Charleston, SC
Shape: Light
Duration:25 minutes
Three bright white lights moving across the sky stopped abruptly and formed into a triangle and then an L shaped formation.

Three lights (looked like bright stars or planets) were moving at a steady pace from south to north across the sky before abruptly slowing and forming into a triangle. Their motions were very counter-intuitive, unlike any aircraft I’ve ever seen.

They then then loitered for a couple of minutes, before started moving north again where they reformed into what looked like a crooked L-shaped constellation in the sky.

They stayed fixed in that formation for several minutes before they started to slowly, almost imperceptibly drift apart. From the south, two green flashing lights, which I presumed to be aircraft(s), approached at a steady pace. They too stopped abruptly in the sky and loitered off to the south an unknown distance from the other objects.

As they stayed perfectly still, the three objects to the north began to slowly drift apart in different directions, eventually fading off.

Meanwhile, it appeared that aircraft were approaching were approaching from t! he south in the direction of the objects.

After approximately ten minutes, the flashing green lights started moving south again and disappeared into haze of the night. They didn’t turn around; they simply reversed direction, after sitting motionless in the sky.
