Location: Hickory, NC
Shape: Triangle
Duration: 1 minute
(3) Yellowish/Orange spheres in the shape of a triangle.

I saw three orange/yellowish spheres moving from West to Northwest at a 45 degree angle. They were moving slow, and in a triangle pattern together.

Formation: The first sphere was @ 3:00 o’clock, the next two behind were @ 12:00 & 6:00 o’clock.

At first I thought it was three helicopters, but there was no sound or other lights flashing that typical aircraft have.

I could not tell the altitude. The three spheres moved slowly across the night sky until they went out of sight.
