Location: West Los Angeles, CA
|Three bright lights, triangle formation, no movement, dusk, no planets visible. One by one 'winked out', vanished.
3 bright lights, white with a blue-ish hint... Stationary forming a large triangular pattern, at about 45 degrees up from horizon, East/South-East looking toward Long Beach from West Los Angeles. Sliver of moon in South/SouthWest sky at same height from horizon. Saturn just barely visible near moon.
The triangle configuration was about the size of the triangle of the tail of constellation Leo. These three "stars" were so bright, too bright to be planets at that time, stars were not yet visible at that hour. Thin coastal haze blocks out most faint stars here at night.
These three bright objects remained in position for a few minutes, then just 'winked out' one by one. Vanished. No movement, no streaks, no coloration, no blinking. Just diminished over a few seconds, by degrees until gone.
