Characteristics: Lights on object

It was the same night that a triangle was seen over Pheonix Az. Summer 1996 I beleive. I heard about it after I saw this thing. I was laying out in the back yard observing the stars and watching for sattelites. The moon was pretty bright and had not long been up. I noticed two stars to the south that I had never seen befor. Then I noticed they were moving south to north and east of me. I then realized that there were three stars moving S to N. I first thought it was three sattilites or possibly aircraft moving. There was no sound.. and I had never seen three sattilites move in the same area like this befor. I called for my wife to get my binoculars. She did. By this time the three lights had formed a triangle east of me and were low on the horizon. I could not put all three lights in the field of view of the binoculars. I had to go from light to light. I then noticed that the triangle was really dark in the center and blocked out other stars as it passed S. to N. I then lost it as it moved to the north. It was not three objects. It was one BIG object.
