Location: Martinez, CA
Shape: Triangle
Duration:2 minutes
Stationary, then slow moving, transparent triangle with bright corner lights that dimmed & disappeared.

My boyfriend and I were stargazing the southern sky when simultaneously, we both saw 3 bright white lights forming a large triangle. The lights were the brightest objects in the sky besides the half moon, and brighter than either of the two planets visible low in the southern and eastern skies, respectively, that night.

The triangle was stationary as we watched but the interior area was either exactly the same color of the sky or otherwise completely transparent. Within a few seconds, the corner lights began dimming down until they only had the intensity of the surrounding stars. Then while holding its shape, the triangle slowly moved upwards until it became stationary for several minutes and the lights dimmed to the point that they were no longer visible.
