After i finished mowing my lawn outside, i sat down to rest and was just looking up at the first quarter moon, when i noticed to the left of the moon, a bright white object in the sky. it was much smaller than the moon and was far away. there was no contrail, and no sound at all. it was still daylight, so i knew couldn't be a star. first it was a bright single light, but would change to two bright lights and then three, and then back to one again. it was drifting further and further lower in the sky. so started out at 45 degrees and ended up maybe 30 degrees in height. when it was three lights, it took on a triangle shape. i watched it for a good 40 minutes until it eventually faded off into the distance. it was too small for my phone camera to resolve. i noticed by chance that about a half hour after my sighting, a military type of plane, was flying at high altitude in the same area. it was not a passenger jet because i know what those look like. if i had to guess, it was like one of those awacs shaped radar planes. to be honest with you, i wonder if the sighting was a high altitude balloon that was perhaps rotating and showing different views, i don't know. i just know it was definitely strange and unusual, being so bright in the middle of the day.
