Location: Bellaire, MI
|Bright, high triangle of lights moving S to N at orbital velocity.
At 0330-0340, I got up to observe the meteor shower. I observed a bright light (brighter than any other object in the sky) at zenith and proceeding north.
I had time to step inside my house and retrieve a pair of binoculars. The object had moved 25-30 degrees off vertical in the 15 seconds it took to return with the binoculars. Closer observation revealed the bright light to be three bright white lights flying in close triangle formation.
No navigation lights were visible. Lights did not blink or waver. No sound was noted.
Lights were moving 2 x 3 times faster than the occasional jet traffic that passes over our very small town. No meteors were observed during this period. No other satellites were visible.
Again, this observation was noteworthy as the object traveled south to north.
