Location: Woodland, CA
Shape: Formation
Duration:5-7 minutes
Three sets of lights, like a formation of airplanes in the distance, hovering instead of moving.

I woke up in middle of the night from some clattering noise in the house. (Not related to the lights outside) As I looked out the window I noticed the changing color and hovering of the first set of three lights. The lights caught my attention as they flickered, and figured it was an airplane going from Beale to Travis. The only difference was that the lights did not move as an airplane would. I had time to go get my binoculars and with them made out the first of three distinguishable lights. I then realized that there were actually three sets of three hovering lights. I thought it must be three airplanes headed towards the south because the lights were so similar to airplane lights. With a change in color as the lights lit up from one of the three lights to another of the three lights. It probably was just airplanes. The only odd thing was they didn't seem to be moving.

I went outside to get a better look but was unable to focus the binoculars on them enough to see much else.
