Orange/Amber Lights in Triangle Formation is Western Sky of Pembroke Pines, FL

Three Lights in a Triangular Pattern On Friday, May 10, 2019, at approximately 8:40pm EST, I was leaving my home in Pembroke Pines Florida, 33024, I looked up into the western night sky and noticed three distinct lights forming a triangle. The bottom two lights were approximately 40 degrees above the horizon and separated by approximately 8 inches. The top of the triangle was approximately 60-65 degrees higher than the two lower lights thus forming a triangle. The amber/orange lights were brighter and larger than any stars that I would usually see in my western sky and looked to be about as large as a commercial airplanes landing lights at 2 miles out.

As I watched the lower bottom light (south) blinked off leaving the bottom northerly and top lights. I recorded these lights with my iPhone’s video. While viewing the remaining two lights the bottom (north) light flickered out leaving the top light. The lights were stationary and did not visibly move in any direction and I couldn’t tell how far or high they were in the nights sky. I did not hear anything unusual as well.

After about a minute the top light flickered out leaving the sky dark.

I went into my house, quickly coming back outside and I noticed one light again in the sky and recorded for 28 seconds as it flickered and blinked out. I pulled a pair of binoculars out of my truck to watch this light as well, hoping to see more.

Within approximately 5-7 minutes I then noticed many smaller aircraft heading west towards the direction of where the lights were which seemed odd.

Facts: • FLL is near but planes do not fly where I saw the lights.

• FLL Landing pattern was not full as I was able to view planes landing during and after I saw these lights.

• Small County airport (North Perry, KHWO) is close and ceases operations at 9pm.

• 4-5 small planes (not Helicopters) were visible heading in the direction of where the lights appeared within 5-7 minutes of the lights vanishing.
