Shape: Triangle
Duration: 3 seconds
Characteristics: There were lights on the object
Three lights in a triangular formation.

As my roommate was driving us home at around 2:45 AM I noticed three lights in a triangle in the northern sky. At first I thought the lights were reflections on my window, because there could be no other light source in the area, but then I realized my window was down. I was initially looking outside because there was supposed to be a meteor shower and eclipse that night. It seemed that as soon as I noticed the lights, they disappeared.
