I witnessed the same sort of lights last night (February 19, 2013) between 7:00 p.m. and 7:30 p.m. I live around Westwood and Kingsway in Coquitlam. I posted on Facebook about what I saw, and a guy from work said his kids seen something as well.
A friend posted a link to this blog and I have to say my experience is almost identical. I could have written it, even down to trying to rationalize what I saw. The lights disappeared one by one with the third light was getting lost in some trees.
There was a V formation as well. I thought there was more lights, but there was only three. I got my girlfriend to come out, but at that point there was only 1 light left. She thought it was a helicopter at first, but the way it moved and there being no sound, she was perplexed as I was. Sorry if I seem to be rambling, but I have no idea what it was we saw.
