|I was sitting on the patio in Point Loma (in San Diego, Ca) Friday, May 14th, 2004, looking up at the Big Dipper when I saw three red and blue flashing lights below it. They came into my view as they rose above a parking structure, but were in the distance in the northwest. They were rising straight up towards the sky at a fairly quick speed. The lights were slighty larger than the stars in the sky. Once it reached the 'handle' of the Big Dipper (about 20 seconds) it seemed to have paused for a moment then headed southeast across the sky. As it passed over me it was sioulletted by the moonlight and I noticed it had a triangular shape, but slighty rounded. It was about 1/8 the size of the moon and seemed to be quite a distance away. It dissapeared from my sight (about 25 seconds later) when it became obstructed by the house.
