Shape: Triangle

I was traveling east coming home from work and saw three bright, white lights in the SW sky. They were appeared to be about the size of an eraser. There were two on top and one on the bottom forming a triangle. The moon was low in the sky and directly in front of me and the lights were a little lower than the moon. They did not flicker and they did not move. I had to turn north to get to my house and I looked over my shoulder as I turned and saw them. It takes about 30 Sec. to get to my house. I parked the car and jumped out and looked and they were completely gone. I ran into the backyard and stood on the picnic table and searched the whole sky and they were gone and there was no moving lights in the sky.

The lights were very bright and pure white. There were no other colors and they did not flicker. They were all the same size and appeared about the size of a pencil eraser. There were two next to each other, horizontally, with a small black space inbetween. There was one below that was positioned inbetween the top two, forming a triangle. I was traveling east and watched them for about 20 minutes. When sitting at a red light, I could determine that the three lights were stationary in the sky. The moon was very low in the sky that night and directly ahead of me. The lights were to the right of the moon (southeast) and just a little lower that the moon. I had to turn north to go to my home and as I turned, I looked over my shoulder and could still see the lights. I later timed it and it takes 30 seconds after I turn to get to my home. When I arrived home, I jumped out of my car and looked for the lights and they were gone. I immediately went into my home and to the backyard and stood on the picnic table and searched the sky. The lights were gone and there were no moving lights in the sky, only stars. I watched for quite a while because I live by Davis Monthan Air Force Base and I wanted to see if they deployed any planes, but they did not. The base is about 3 miles from where I live. Last fall my daughter and some of her friends saw a UFO over Rincon Mountain and within minutes the air force base was deploying pairs of planes. I have a master's degree and am a 49 year old female.
