Duration:8~10 seconds
Three red light formation over Houston

I was watching for meteor shower activity and observered 3(three) non-blinking red lights in a tringular formation, moving from North to South at a constant speed.

Altitude and speed uncertain as I don't know the size of the craft. The observed phenomenon crossed a 50(fifty) degree arc above the city of Houston and disappeared into cloud cover in a duration of approx. 8~10 seconds. When I lost sight of these lights, I noted the time of 03:40AM-CST(US).

There were no unusual sounds ocurring during or for several minutes after the observation.

Almost exactly one-half hour later, at approx. 04:10AM-CST(US), I observed what appeared to be a commercial aircraft(red and white blinking lights) prodeeding in a direction from NE to SW(compass heading approx 210~230 degrees), already at altitude, possiblly from IAH(Bush), Memphis, DFW, or Little Rock, destination unknown.
