possible UFO sighting over Orcas Island, San Juan Islands, Washington on July 2, 2000

In the late evening of July 1st, 2000 / early morning of July 2nd, 2000 at approx. 12:30am three satellite-looking objects were spotted flying in a perfect 90-degree triangular formation south-easterly in the sky over Orcas Island, the San Juans, Washington. As the formation was flying, the 90-degree angle was in the lower-left position. These objects were certainly in space and possibly satellites, only if there are satellites flying in such formation. Since I am unaware of any satellites flying in a perfect triangular position, I am contemplating the possibility of UFO's. From Earth, the objects looked similar to orbitting satellites. If any person knows of additional, pertinent information which may enlighten the observer, please reply via my email at: ((e-address deleted. NUFORC responded to witness with information about U. S. Navy satellite program)). I am currently a graduate student at the University of Washington studying ((degree deleted)). I originally grew up in Glenview, Illinois, a suburb of Chicago. In the past I have been skeptical about the existence of UFO's and I tend to think the crafts I saw were satelites, but the perfect formation of a triangle makes me wonder. If any person can help the observer better understand what may have been flying over Orcas Island, please respond to my email at:((e-address deleted)) Thanks
