Are you referring to the three NOAA satillites in a near polar
orbit? These form a triangular shape when seen from the Earth's
surface and they move quite fast across the sky but in fact are
approx. 21 kilometers (13 miles) apart and slightly different
altitudes in their separate orbits. And Popular Mechanics never
solves anything.
