Duration: 30 seconds
Characteristics: There were lights on the object
Three triangular (spaced to far out to be a plane) lights flew across the sky and then dissappeard.

As a first note, there was no comsumption of alchohol or any use of drugs. I am a 16 year old male. I was working in Pinnacles national monument. One night, my fellow crew mates and I decided to go on a park sponsored star hike. we hiked one mile to an outlook high above the base canyon. when we got there, we observed stars and various formations. THe ranger leading the tour had a high powered laser pointer of sorts which was capable of projecting and extremely bright, concetrated beam of light that he used to point out stars. The presentation passed without incident. The encounter happened on our hike back down. A we descended, i was looking at stars when i noticed a strange formation of what looked like 3 sattelites. However upon further examination, i realized that the lights we set in a perfect triangle formation. The 3 lights that i saw were much too far spaced out to be an airplane. Further more, the was no true body connecting the dots. You could see straight through whatever was connecting the lights. Finally i said "Hey, what's that thing?". The group looked up. THe ranger replied, "i have no idea. I've never seen anything like that." My leader suggested that the ranger use his star pointer to try and signal the object. The ranger pulled out his pointer and shot three short burst of light at the object. Upon being signalled, the object banked sharply down and within that second, dissappeared into thin air. It was the strangest thing i'd ever seen. contact me by email only and i can give you other witnesses to the incident.
