Location: Coto De Caza, CA
Shape: Light
Duration:3 min.
10-20 bright lights observed in night sky

It was app. 23:00 hrs. a small group of people were sitting outside in the hot tub when someone noticed a group of large, bright lights moving west to east. The appeared to be in a formation similar to ducks. (a V) The moved at different speeds, when first noticed, they were moving fairly slow. But after only a few seconds, they sped up and moved very fast. (much to fast for a plane) Then after a few seconds, they slowed down and changed directions. There is no way that a plane could have changed directions in the way these lights did. PLUS, we noticed for the first time that they broke formation. (at first we thought they were all from one craft) but now we realized they were completely different objects. We lost them as they went over Saddleback Mountain.
