|Triangular lights, high in the night sky
While stargazing with the assistance of a Gen.3 White Phosphor night vision device, I observed three lights which maintained a consistent triangle formation, very high up in the night sky. The lights were first observed to the S/SW 30-40 degrees off the horizon, and passed high overhead, continuing to the north horizon in only about 30-45 seconds of time. I don’t believe I would have seen it with the naked eye. When the lights passed in front of other celestial objects, they were momentarily blocked, suggesting some shape/solidity/mass detween the three lights observed (so I believed it to be a triangular object). The rear two lights seemed to move occasionally, relative to each other, in a manner I could only describe as ‘wagging wings’. No sound was heard, or other lights observed. This thing was high, and FAST. Just incredible! I’ve seen shooting stars, satellites, the International Space Station... NEVER anything like this before.
