Hi, playing with my night vision tonight, noticed what seemed to be lights/stars aligned in a triangular fashion.
Since I know nothing about constellations I thought someone might be able to tell if it was legitimate stars.
Triangle is visible around 10s
Night Vision monocular + Iphone 5
I guess this is only visible in 1080
Let me know what you guys think

I agree - stars. Some hints to help categorize what you see. If the lights are dim, in the sky and not moving more than 1/12 of the sky's width per
hour, they are stars. If you see any really bright fast moving lights in the sky, it's probably a drone. If you see any really bright fast moving
lights coming towards you near the ground -- get out of the street.
Go into your app store, go to search and type in 'constellation' or 'star' finder, they have a few to choose from. I'm using a free version on
my iPhone, it's not as impressive or fancy but it gets the job done when you have questions as to what you may be seeing in the night sky.
My advice to anyone who takes the time each night to actually WATCH for things, or simply to enjoy the beauty in the skies, get a GOOD
constellation app so you have access to more information on various stars. Also, invest in a good satellite fly by tracking app so you're not
getting worked up over something mundane! It's fun when you know to expect one, and you see it, and when none are expected, you see something
genuinely mysterious! I'd like to find an app or a good informative site explaining what different military craft can do, how fast they go, the
lights they use, etc.. I've seen some questionable maneuvers by what I WAS sure, we're planes... After a bit of digging, I'm not so sure! Good luck
and keep watching the stars!
