3 points of light seen moving north east in a triangular pattern June 15/01 21:30 hrs.

The other evening, after I purchased a Telescope (Bushnell Voyager) for the boys, I was sighting it in on Venus -- Low to the east at about 9:30 -- and while looking over the telescope I noticed 3, what looked to be stars, moving in unison at a extremely high altitude. In the foreground was a jet airliner making its way in the same direction (NE) of the 3 stars which were much higher and moving much slower than the aircraft. Venus remained stationary as a point of reference. I said to the boys: "Look at those 3 stars moving up there." They looked and said they saw them, then they faded away. They formed a triangle pattern. It would be my guess that there was about 10 miles between the 3 points. Any ways, I actually saw something which I have no prosaic explanation for.
