Location: Grand Rapids, MI
Shape: Triangle
Duration: 30 seconds
3 bright white lights in the shape of a triangle - same distance and same size - then formed a straight line and moved east.

It was 3:35 am on 11-4-2015 - I walked outside to let my dogs out. Looking East, I’ve noticed that lately I can see Jupiter, Mars & Venus to left of the moon in an “L” shape. I didn’t see the planets this night, they would have been above my house and out of sight at the time I was outside (I can usually see them about 5:30 – 6:00 am).

I saw 3 bright white round lights in the shape of a triangle, but larger than a normal star all the same size and brightness... There was no solidity to it, just the 3 lights formed into a perfect triangle, no noise.

I usually stand inside waiting for the dogs but this time I walked outside to get a better look, rubbed my eyes, thinking that I just woke up, or that I was seeing stars in a constellation that I didn’t recognize, etc…

I stared at the lights for about 10 seconds, then the 2 lower lights of the triangle came around each side to form a straight line with the middle light and they slowly started moving East and up getting farther and farther away but maintaining equal distance between each other, until I could no longer see them, for about another 20 seconds. I watched them just disappear… almost like you’d see a satellite in the sky, but these 3 stayed together.

I tried to “de-bunk” what I saw by looking at the placement of the planets and stars at this particular time that night and there was nothing that would have been in my view at that particular time that would have formed this triangle, let alone the movement.

The feeling I had was something other than looking at the stars too, I knew immediately that it wasn’t something ordinary, that it wasn’t a plane or 3 satellites…

It was cold outside and I had no slippers or socks on and was in my pajamas, I never go outside while waiting for my dogs to come in, not even in the summer, I wouldn’t have walked outside if I didn’t think this was something worthwhile to look at…
