|A large triangle flying at high altitude
While stargazing, I observed what appeared to be a satellite moving from north/northwest to south/southeast almost 90 degrees above the eastern horizon. When I looked through my binoculars at it appeared to be 3 lights travelling in formation but as they passed the area between the lights revealed the starfield behind them. These lights were steady and formed an obtuse triangle. It was some time after moonset. I heard no noise from them. My binoculars are Nikon 10x. The triangle took up a large portion on the field-of-view when observed through the binoculars. Due to forest cover I had them in view for about 90 degrees of the horizon.
