7-9 very bright yellow lights in equal spacing, some hoovering, very fast, no sound, cupertino

While walking from the Stevens Creek/85 interchange to the coffee shop I observed one bright yellow light, non-blinking but sortof candlelick with a faint flickering, rising over the horizon due west (roughly over the hills where Ano Nuevo would be/Pacific Ocean) and as it climbed another came up, and another spaced about the distance from pinky finger-tip to thumb tip if fingers are fully extended, etc....the first two (i think) then joined closely together (about width of two fingers) and moved to the left of where the lights were coming from; then they just stayed there, bobbing slightly, but more or less motionless..... went into the coffe shop and when I came out (3 min.) there were 5 other people witnissing this + two cars stopped on road...by now there were 7 objects in sky (last one coming up over horizon) and one of the first 2 barely visibal due South/SouthWest (so there might have been 8, or 9 who knows the true total....they all continiued their arc up and to the south/southwest except the final two which then broke North NorthEast once at the apex and stayed there for a moment....one then proceeded N/NE while the other remained there for about 3-4 min. more until none of the S/SE or the N/NE object were visible anylonger, then it bolted off covering the distance to the S/SE ones ini 2 min. or so (this would have been, by the time the bright light wasn't visible) about 200-400 miles i guess?).....there were no sounds audible the entire time, nothing. Don't know what else to say...There was a film student from the local jr. college who happened to have a video camera (she was unsure that the quality of it would collect images well in the given light of pre-dawn) who I may be able to refind some morning should you feel it worth pursuing.
