Shape: Triangle
Duration:20 minutes
Very bright Triangle/U shaped light.

I was looking up at the moon in my driveway. The sky was still blue because the sun hadn't set yet. A light about the size of the north star appeared out of nowhere directly to the right of the moon. It stayed in one place for 2-3 minutes before moving slowly to the south, then becoming stationary again for a few minutes. The light went back north at the same speed as when it went south. It was stationary for a few more moments and then traveled east. There where no flashing/blinking lights, it never changed color, nor did it make a sound. In my opinion it wasn't even in our atmosphere. The light was just as bright as the north star on a clear night. I decided to take my telescope out when it was stationary to the east. What I saw through the telescope, I can't get out of my head. My wife took a look and it freaked her out so bad she could take another look. I studied this object for as long as I could. It was a triangle or almost U shaped. In my telescope it was as big as a nickel so with something that size in the telescope I would think you would be able see some type of structure, but there wasn't. It was just a very bright white triangle/U shape light that moved from north to south back to north and then east. For me, the most incredible event was when it decided to leave. As I was looking at it with the telescope, it started to move east more so I had to keep adjusting the telescope. I found it, I centered it and in a faction of a second it was gone. After witnessing something like this, it has me definitely looking up and questioning a lot of things.
