Full Description of event/sighting: I am an amateur astronomer and had just received a new right angel finder scope in the mail so I went outside to evaluate the optics before going to bed. I wanted to find M3 as I know where it is and wanted to see how much the scope would "see" with it. So, I located Archturus and was going to move the scope to M3 from there (it was difficult to find anything as hand holding a right angle finder does not lend itself to easy finding). In looking at Archturus and trying to see the large kite like shape of Bootes, I was temporarily confused as the constellation did not pop out to me as it usually does. Then I realize why, there were three extra points of light right in the middle of Bootes that appeared to be about the same brightness as the bulk of the stars there. They are in a triangle with each other, and then I notice that they are moving. This sort of freaked me out as they were not typical of airplanes and not typical of satellites either.

I often catch a glimpse of satellites but they are moving faster than these were, not in this direction, and not in a perfect triangle of three stars. I managed to locate them in the finder scope and that did not reveal any airplane like lights either, just points of light like a star. They traveled in a strait line in perfect formation heading towards Scorpios, basically south-east. I watched them for a couple of minutes and they just vanished. I have no idea what they were, but certainly nothing I had seen before. I would be anxious to know if anybody else reported something similar. As high up as these appeared to be, there was still probably 2 degrees between them, so it is not like a group of jets traveling in formation. There was no sound either, anybody else report such a thing?

Thank you to the witness for their report.
