Full Description of event/sighting: I know this wasn't in Canada, but I had to tell someone. This event took place the night that the ISS was visible over the east coast in March 2008 at 8:23 pm EST (not sure of the day). My son, 16 yrs, and I, 47 yrs, were watching the ISS pass over at incredible speed, obviously, when I noticed three stars to the left of the ISS path brighter than the rest of the stars. They were dimming slightly and getting brighter alternately, though not at the same time. Stars could be seen between them, so they were definitely three separate entities. I had never noticed these lights in that area, but since they were not moving and I am no astronomer, I brushed them off as stars. When the ISS passed them,my son asked "Dad, what are those three "stars" doing? The three "stars" began to move and cross the pass the ISS had taken.
They stayed in a triangle formation and began to pick up speed until they zoomed off at incredible speed. I had no idea as to the altitude of these objects, but they appeared to be in the same approximate orbit as the ISS, because the light emitted from them appeared the same as the ISS (reflected sunlight). When we last saw them, they were moving away from, and at a rate faster than, the ISS (the ISS is moving ~17,000 mph). NASA and the ISS Control station had to see them, though I doubt they would admit it. My son and I are not easily impressionable and are both fairly intelligent people. If anyone has any idea as to the reason for these lights, please email. Thanks.
Thank you to the witness for their report.
