Duration: 3-5 seconds
No of observers: 1

Location: Burke, VA, USA

Shape: Triangle
Characteristics: Lights on object

Three very faint lights in a small triangular shape moving very fast across the sky

I had been outside observing the Leonid meteor shower for over 30 minutes (though I had yet to see a meteor), so my eyes were adjusted to the low light conditions, and I was laying on my back looking up. I saw movement in an area of the sky and focused on it. I was able to identify three very faint lights in a triangular shape moving very fast across the sky. I saw the object cover approximately 30-40 degrees of arc in 3-5 seconds before it went out of my view (blocked by roof). The distance between the lights seemed roughly equidistant and appropriate for an airplane flying at several thousand feet, but the speed at which it moved was not normal. I did not hear any sound accompanying the object during or after visual contact.
