Shape: Triangle
Duration: 1.00 minute
Characteristics: There were lights on the object
triangle object with bright lights

To whom it may concern, On Monday, 04-13-2009, I was exiting my car to open the gate to my residence. I looked up in the night sky and saw three bright white lights in a triangle formation.

I stepped away from my gate, approx. 30ft, to get a better look at the object. I could not see any clear edges of the object. The lights did not change shape or appear to shine a beam. I could not guess the height of the object from the ground but it was not at tree level.

The object did not appear to emitt any sound and was traveling from a southerly to northerly direction. The night was clear with high visibility.

I only observed the object for approx. 1 minute.

I am accustomed to seeing aircraft from the George Bush International airport and do see high flying aircraft. I am just trying to get clarification of what I saw in the sky. If I knew for certain this was an aircraft I would not be reporting this information.

The time this event happened was between 22:50 and 23:00hrs.
