Posted: 11/2/2004
Location: Tampa, FL
Shape: Triangle
Duration: 2-4 seconds
Characteristics: There were lights on the object
Triangular lights observed during total lunar eclipse.

As the lunar eclipse had just reached totality I noticed light and movement to the left just below the moon. At first I thought it was a meteor but as I focused I could make out 3 distinct lights in a triangular pattern. It was moving very quickly with no noise or flashing lights, and seemed to be at a high altitude. It moved quickly out of range to the southeast.
