|Small circle or triangle with 3 dim white lights moving very quickly.
I am the only observer that I know of. I am a 23-year-old male and I am a student.
I was leaving my apartment to go study on campus when a fast moving cluster of lights caught my attention. This was at 21:55 O'clock. There were no clouds at the time of the sighting.
The craft was moving from North to South. It caught my attention because of how fast it was moving, which at first was in a straight line, but kept my attention because it started making very sharp, random turns. All of the turns were very immediate, with no time spent changing directions. Although the overall movement of the craft stayed north to South, its zigzags were alternating east and west. It also appeared to be moving at a constant velocity during these turns, until I lost sight of it a few seconds later. The speed was faster than a commercial jet that was also in the sky and was constant.
The parts of the craft that were visible to me were the three faint white lights. These lights did not change intensity, color, or position relative to me during its flight. As the craft made its zigzags, the three lights stayed in the same orientation, but the craft was translated east and west. The outer border of the craft was at times visible, but I'm not sure if it was a circle or a triangle. The lights however were arranged in a perfect equilateral triangle.
Its size appeared to be smaller than an airplane, but I could not be sure of its altitude. The only other information that I have is that as I lost sight of it, the lights got dimmer. I'm not sure if it was gaining altitude or not because the lights were already close together and dim, so to me they just got dimmer.
