Shape: Triangle
Duration:1 hr. 40 min.
four triangular shaped crafts moved slowly over our heads...joining others accross the valley...

My girlfriend and I were driving north over Mt. St. Helena when we saw pair of bright stationary lights above trees against cloudless full moon sky. Craft did not move for 40 seconds. Pulled off to side of road. As soon as we stopped, craft moved towards us..approx. four stories above us. As we got out of car, craft went over our heads, emanating a low humming sound/vibration. It was triangular with six or more white lights constituting the shape of the triangle and a red and green light in the middle. Next, the craft slowly moved over us accross valley, turned all red, crossed valley in southerly direction, then moved east along mountain ridge, then disappeared behind trees. We got back in car and drove futher up mountain. Pulled over again, looking accross valley floor and saw several more lights moving along ridge, some east-bound, some west, changing colors from red blinking to white, disappearing, reappearing, swelling and contracting and moving spasticly. Suddenly, another craft of same appearance as first- but much closer- moved directly over our heads. We were calm, excited and in awe. Craft moved out over valley joining other ones. Some seemed to be circling back toward us at higher altitude and further away. Later, one- and then another- went over our head at slightly higher altitude than first two. We continued to watch many crafts moving on opposite side of valley. We are questioning whether we lost some time... some confusion...very surreal.
