Location: St. George, UT
Shape: Triangle
Duration: ~1 second
Characteristics: There were lights on the object
As I stood there three bright dots in the formation of a triangle flew Northwest over me for about 1-2 seconds. It was 11:20 PM.

As I was in my backyard I was looking up at the stars setting up my camera (which unfortunately didn’t capture it), and out of nowhere I see three bright dots, slightly less bright than mars, in the formation of a triangle. To be specific, it was an isosceles triangle shape. I was able to follow this triangle with eyes for about 1 second, maybe 2, and then it kept flying out of my view. To be clear, at no point did I see it vanish, it just kept flying and from where I was, I was unable to keep seeing it due to my house’s roof being in the way. It was moving Northwest and at no point turned or rotated. I believe the angle would be 180 degrees, since it was moving practically in a straight Northwest line from where I first saw it, to where I last saw it.

If it helps in any way, at around 11:20PM, the location where I first saw this object was fairly close to the positioning of mars at that time. (Not exact, but close to it). The position of Mars was to my Southwest. Overall, this was a perfect triangle formation, moving at an incredibly fast speed, and producing no noise whatsoever. My coordinates were 37°7'5.64'N113'31'47.78 W
