|3 slow moving lights in triangular formation over Savannah, GA
As I was driving home, I noticed 3 lights in the sky in a triangular formation, two on top and one on the bottom, and the bottom one being much brighter than the other two. I pulled over to watch them and videoed for 20 minutes. While videoing them, they didn't appear to be moving. After review of the video, they were indeed moving slowly, noticed by a point of reference in the video.
I thought possibly it was a bright star or planet (even though I have never seen a star or planet this bright), so I rushed home to grab my camera and tripod. I was going to attempt to do a long exposure photograph that would capture the star trails as the earth spun to see if these lights were of the same pattern. As I went back out to the vicinity of the lights, I noticed they were much farther away. They were moving in a west / south-west direction. I attempted to get on the interstate to follow them (I-16 west), but they were moving too fast for me to keep up and eventually I lost them in the trees in the western sky.
