Duration: 10 seconds
Characteristics: There were lights on the object
Three dim lights in a triangle, and two others, all moving across the sky.

Date: 8 Feb 202 Time: 7:01 pm (PST) Location: South Berkeley, CA I went outside to look for the ISS that was passing overhead. I spotted the beginning of the pass in the north-west sky, looking like a moving star, and went inside to get a pair of binoculars. I came back outside and tried to find the ISS in the north sky. As I did I saw three dim lights in a triangle shape, and two similar lights a small distance off from the others, overhead and slightly to the north. The five lights were all moving easterly at a speed approximating the speed with which the ISS crosses (the speed of a low flying airplane.) I thought at first these might be from the ISS, but it was much too much distance between the lights for this to make sense (the ISS would have to have been at the height of a low airplane to be separated by such a distance.) The lights were not flashing, were not colored, and were all moving “together” across the sky. They were dim, not bright like stars.

I lost them behind a building, and then tried to re-sight the ISS, which I found in the south-east sky, at the end of its transit.
