3 bright lights in triangle pattern stationary over SF Bay

February 16th at 6:15 pm while driving towards San Francisco on Highway 280, 3 unconnected bright lights in a triangular pattern on my right caught my attention. By my estimate they seemed to be on the other side of the bay in the direction of Oakland. Having grown up next to the SF Airport I knew right away they did not look like the lights from any plane I have ever seen before. Looking back and forth from the road to the lights I noticed they were not moving. I watched them for approx. 20 seconds. After another glance they disappeared. I had a clear view of the sky but were unable to see the lights anywhere.

The sky that evening was just starting to become overcast.
