Well several long pieces of tough string or twine, laced from one lantern to the other, say 10-15 feet long, in a triangle formation between 3
lanterns. Have 3 friends light them and hold them up and release them simultaneously.
Off they float...though they may move close but they will only move apart as far as the twine.
If the twine is too "Loose", maybe a fine light dowel could be used or balsa wood instead?
As you said, you have no idea how far away it was, may have only been 100 feet in the air, but appeared 1000 feet with night perception etc.
Not trying to discredit your sighting....But you will Definitely know when you see one of the Real black triangles.
By all reports and various postings on ATS...they are ours (as in Human)....But top secret.
I suppose it's a possibility.
True, I do not know what height this was to be sure but once I noticed the other 2 lights I did notice they were moving in a controlled manner. If
they were lanterns wouldn't they just blow about? Not move about in a manner where they move themselves in a constant stable speed for a few seconds
then suddenly stop?
Also for the sake of it lets say these were "engines" the size and scale of this sighting would have me presume that these are tiny engines on a
craft very low or they are large engines high up on a very big craft.
I only mention this because my experience of seeing chinese lanterns is that they are reasonably big with the glow they give off, bigger than stars at
least even over a large distance.
If you could cut the sky into 4 equal squares this thing would have been sighted on the inner corner of the south east square. That would be nearly
above me and I could use the corner of my house as a reference point to how much this moved as it was in view with the sighting the whole time.
This far up north the sky is black to the south and quite bright to the north this time of the year for obvious reasons, if this thing was on the
opposite side of the sky (in the north) I would presume I would have seen a silhouette... when this thing moved over star constellations the stars
disappeared behind it, so I'm inclined to think what I saw was most likely solid.
Personally I don't know what I saw, I'm inclined to think if it was a craft it was from Earth. At the moment I cannot see how it was lanterns unless
it had a black canvass tied into the inside of the ropes connecting them and I can imagine it would be too heavy then to gain any lift.
Thanks for your input
Maybe I did see a one of those secret craft, it did fill me with wonder and was very very strange. I'm just trying to keep
an open mind... hopefully not too open my brain falls out
