We consider the family of 2nd order rogue wave rational solutions of the nonlinear Schrödinger equation
(NLSE) with two free parameters. Surprisingly, these solutions describe a formation consisting of 3
separate first order rogue waves, rather than just two. We show that the 3 components of the triplet
are located on an equilateral triangle, thus maintaining a certain symmetry in the solution, even in its
decomposed form. The two free parameters of the family define the size and orientation of the triangle
on the (x,t) plane.
