Location: Bennington, VT
Shape: Triangle
Duration:45-60 seconds
silent aircraft with three circular lights in triangle formation seemed to fly into space from normal plane altitude in one minute.

The craft that was witnessed by my girlfriend, her mom, and myself is unknow in actual shape and was flying from south to north in the southern vermont area. It had what looked like three circular lights in a triangle formation in the very back of the craft and almost seemed to propel the craft.

When first seen the craft was overhead in the sky (appeared as high/large as most planes) and silently over the period of roughly 60 seconds disappeared before our eyes. Normally, planes fly out of sight in the horizon, this craft just continued in a straight flight pattern through the sky, not near the horizon until it was so far away it couldn't be seen (into space i would describe).

What drew my attention to the craft was it seemed to be traveling faster than the planes we see all the time. Also their were no blinking lights but three solid lights that were brighter than any plane i'm used to seeing.
