Moving 3 Light Triangular Formation Eastern Sky @ FL330

Flying at FL330 east bound about 40 SE Colorado Sprgs, CO at approx. 0908 GMT/ 0208MT on (11 Dec.'01) looking into the eastern sky. I was gazing at a star/planet and for a very brief time 15-20 seconds I saw 3 lites in a lopsided triangle shape slowly moving right to left below this star/planet that I was looking at. I am not an astronomer so I don't know if it was a star or a planet. But the very slight movement caught my eye and I followed it for the 15 sec or so until it slowly drifted left and down until it went out of sight. The sky was clear with no clouds below but it appeared as though it drifted down into the haze or cloud layer below. It may have been one UFO or three flying in the lopsided triangle formation. The size and intensity of the white lights were similar in brightness and size to the star I was looking at. It was not an aircraft and it appeared and disappeared again so quickly I did not mention it to the Co-Pilot.
