Triangle formation of lights near Portland International Airport

On the evening of October 18, 2010 near Portland International Airport in Oregon, a witness saw and snapped photos of lights in a triangular formation, that later broke formation and left in separate directions.

Summary: Saw stable triangle formation in the area of PDX

While driving west on Padden PKWY in Vancouver WA on my way home, I noticed a perfect triangular formation of bright sphere-like lights to the south of me in the general area of Portland International Airport. The lights appeared much brighter than the typical plane lights look in the sky as planes come and go from PDX.

As I continued driving, I saw that the formation was completely stable, and seemed to be just sort of hovering in place. Confused as to why and how planes would hold a formation like this above the airport, I turned and drove south down HWY 503 towards the lights, hoping to get a better view, and to pull over to determine if the lights were as stationary as they seemed.

After pulling off the road into a parking lot, I got out of the car with my camera and snapped a photo. The formation then began rotating slowly in place, with all three lights maintaining the same spacing and distance from one another. I snapped two more photos while this was happening, and then 1 of the lights broke out of formation and moved steadily to the east. The two remaining lights continued to rotate for another few moments, and then another one left formation and seemed to move in a north-westerly direction. The remaining light became stationary, and then slowly faded from sight.

If anyone else saw this, please submit your own report for additional verification. I phoned PDX to ask if the air traffic was moving normally and she said that all flights were operating normally. I could not think of a satisfactory explanation for what I saw.
