Three "stars" in a perfect "v" formation, one drops slowly out of the sky.

I was getting ready for work on the second floor of my house in the early morning, and I looked out of the bathroom window as I often do to see what the weather was. I was looking due west over the rooftop of the neighboring house. I saw the moon on the left (full moon) and to the right of the moon I saw three "stars" that were blinking. All three were twinkling blue/white. They all appeared equally bright. As I was looking at the three "stars" (which were lined up in a "v" or "isosceles triangular" formation, and two of them were exactly lined up from north to south), I noticed that the "star" lowest to the ground somehow was moving in a downward motion. It slowly dropped straight down until it was behind my neighbor's roof and I could not see it any more. The other two remained stationary, and as I had to hurry to work, I could not stay longer to watch. Interestingly, another member of my household saw a larger group of very similar UFOs on 7/15/01 (see reference in database) in the exact same spot over the neighbor's rooftop, but at a different time of the day and exhibiting different behavior.
