Triangle-patterned lights in sky

We were observing the night sky at ranch near Ginnie Springs/Gainsville. My friend pointed out 3 lights in a triangle pattern that were very high in altitude. All three lights were white, and were not flashing like the strobes on an airplane. Also, no recognition lights (red/green or red/blue) were present as on an airplane. All three lights were moving northwest at the same speed (the distance between them remained constant). There were no aircraft inthe area at the time.

((NUFORC Note: If the objects, in fact, were moving to the northwest, then they almost certainly were not satellites. Satellites almost never have a westerly component to their groundtrack. If they were going northeast, they may have been part of the U. S. Navy N.O.S.S. satellite system. PD))
