Shape: Formation
Duration:50 minutes
Three lights chilling (like ordinary stars) - suddenly break apart and move in opposite directions - one comes back thru

Sitting in back yard with my lady on my lap, watching sky for aerial phenomena, as we both enjoy doing, 3:45am.

All-at-once, same time, this slightly askew triangle (just looks like ordinary stars), broke apart in opposite directions--Two lights slow moving while the third light moved away much, much faster (south).

Those two slow moving lights came to rest after about 12 seconds (appearing tethered like two a moored boats), remaining the same distance from each other, swaying slightly, about four fingers apart.

The third light in the formation that moved much-much faster, was quickly out of our view because of the house/roof (like 3 seconds).

So we watched the two "tethered" lights for about 8 minutes. Then another light came back from the same direction as the fast moving third one, like it had done a u-turn, flew right back at the same speed. It went right between the two "tethered" lights, and kept going until out of sight (north).

We watched those two steady "tethered" lights until they started to fade with the sunrise and we went inside, at least another 40 minutes til we turned in.

Unique, to say the least.
