National UFO Reporting Center Sighting Report
Occurred : 5/8/2004 23:15 (Entered as : 05/08/2004 23:15)
Reported: 5/9/2004 1:54:15 PM 13:54
Posted: 5/10/2004
Location: Littleton, CO
Shape: Formation
Duration: 30-45 sec.
Characteristics: There were lights on the object
What appeared to be 3 normal stars began to move in perfect formation, then faded from view.

While looking up at the stars, a friend and i both noticed at about the some time that a few stars appeared to be moving. We pointed them out to the third person there and watched as the stars continued to move in a large isosoles triangle formation. The formation was much larger than any plane could have been, even if it was at low altitude-the formation was approx. half the area of the inside of the little dipper, which is where we first spotted it. the object continued to move at a fairly good clip, at one point obstructing the view of another stationary star, until it faded from view.
