Shape: Light
Duration: 2 seconds
I witnessed three lights for 2 seconds in triangle formation shooting towards the earth off in the distance.

I would say it looked exactly like a shooting star, except it was three white lights in triangle formation. Two lights on bottom and one on top moving extremely fast towards the earth, up to down movement, disappearing without a flare like shooting star usually do when they burn in atmosphere. This was off in the distance towards the eastern direction night sky, over in Missouri side of state line. It was only two seconds if not one second. I almost did not say anything about this quick moment until I heard on CNN of more UFO sightings in Texas, today.
