Reported: 2/17/2016 8:09:54 PM 20:09
Posted: 2/19/2016
Location: Miami (Suburbs), FL
Shape: Triangle
Duration:10 minutes
Triangle formation three lights proceeding one red light

When outside, I looked up to the Southeast. Traveling from east to west mid point on the horizon there appeared one steady red light proceeded by three bright lights in a perfect triangle form. The bright lights blinked in no ascertainable pattern (i.e. not aircraft lights). There was no noise.

I then rushed inside and asked my daughter to come out. She too witnessed the phenomenon.

The lights traveled together from east to west in a steady line. However, after approximately six minutes the three trailing lights disappeared and the one steady red light continued to the west until it disappeared beyond visible line of sight. There was an airplane (commercial) that had taken off from MIA.

The distance between the two was significant, even though the civilian plane flew towards the southeast.
