Triple LIghts in Ursa Major, probably the Triple Naval satellites.

I have seen this several times at well at star parties in Wyoming. In fact they are listed on satellite orbit sites, like Heaven's Above. It is called the Navy Trio. It is group of satellites that do interferometry on naval vessels. An interesting object, but not UFO's from another world.

ROLLA, MO, 20:50 HRS. ON MONDAY, APRIL 16, 2007 A husband and wife witness a peculiar pair of "triplet" lights pass from west to east.

Husband is an experienced astronomer, and provides this illustration of their sighting.
