Fast moving Vshaped 5 lighted craft seen moving north from the south

I was outside with my telescope searching for comet C/2002 T7 when I saw in my finder a very small v-shaped lighted object moving quickly north; I was able to pick out 5 lights. I first spotted the object about 10 degrees from the constellation Triangulum. I quickly moved to my eyepiece and tried to follow the object. It was difficult to make out any detail except for five gold colored lights, the rest of the object was unidentifiable. At first I thought it may have been a plane but there was no noise, no strobe or marker lights, and it was way too high up. If I had to give it a magnitude in comparison to the stars Id say about magnitude 3 or 4. The object dissappeared and reappeared 3 times until it finally disappeared about 25 degrees east of Polaris(North Star).
