Triangle formation of three erratically moving starlike lights

Near sunrise I was looking almost straight up, but facing south, and saw three "stars" in a large triangle formation. They were the only stars visible in that area of the sky. As I looked at them I noticed that one of them was moving very erratically, back and forth in a wobbly motion. Sometimes, it reversed its direction suddenly. Then I looked at the other two lights, and they seemed to be wobbling, too. I kept looking at the total shape of the formation and saw that the triangle did change shape, with the light on the right-hand point of the triangle doing the most movement. When it got closer to sunrise they diasppeared. I don't think any aircraft could have changed direction so quickly and wobbled so erratically.

((NUFORC Note: We suspect that the sighting may have occurred on September 5, not August 5, as the witness indicated in the date box above. We have changed the date, until we hear back from the witness. PD))
