Shape: Triangle
Duration: two minutes
Characteristics: There were lights on the object
triangle of light suddenly cruises past the stars in unison

Myself (20/f) and a friend (19/m) were watching the night sky at a farmhouse about 11:30 pm. We saw a couple of shooting stars or meteors and began watching intensly. I saw a tiny flare of light that he did not see and as I pointed in the direction I said, "It happened by that triangle of stars"- THere were three immobile lights in the shape of a triangle that weren't too close to be cluster but were close enough that no other "stars" interfered with their pattern. As we looked at the triangle, we noticed that it suddenly began shifting to the left, past other stars. The three lights moved in perfect proportionate formation for about two minutes, traveling slowly across a small strip of sky until they abrubtly disappeared all at once.
