Shape: Formation
Duration:5 minutes
High altitude trangular grouping - high speed takeoff

Moving from West To East I saw what I thought to be a helicopter at very high altitude as it maneuvered like one and eventually hovered directly overhead. There it was joined by two similar objects, one coming from the South and another from the East. They formed a perfect equilateral triangle and the whole group then drifted to the East.

After a few minutes the original one took off North at unbelievable speed , the other two took off South also at very fast speed.
