I was photographing the Camelopardalids shower when I noticed these three star like objects moving to my left as I was facing south. They were moving slowly, in a triangle like formation slower than a satellite and had no blinking lights. If they had stopped moving, they would appear as stars, like they were that far away. They stayed in this formation without veering away from each other. As they continued to move to my left they then faded away as if they were moving out into space, not in an orbit etc. I was shooting long exposures and have two images, I will label them 1 and two. In the photos it looks as if they are meteors streaking by from left to right, but in reality they were moving slowly from right to left. I was in awe at what I was seeing, I only lost sight when they faded away. My notice of them lasted maybe 20 secs or so. I am having trouble opening the disk now for some reason. I have the RAW images unedited, but can't get them to open. Ok cannot even eject the disc. I have made a copy of the original 2nd photo that I edited for my FB and Flickr page. I will add that photo.
