Location: San Diego, CA
Duration:2-3 minutes that I saw
|Large groupings of 7-9 or more dark orange lights-not moving but did eventually fade away. No object seen-just lights
Heading west bound on Hwy 52 towards home-looked up in the sky as I always do, as it is a beautiful clear San Diego evening with lots of stars, then to the south I saw a bunch of lights-dark orange-Not blinking, very odd color. Some were bigger and brighter than others. I put my hazards on and slowed to about 25 mph completely blown away by what I was seeing and trying to come up with a logical explanation. I thought for a minute maybe something had exploded in the sky and i was seeing the embers, then (There was an airplane heading south that was much lower but had to have seen the same thing I was seeing-probably either just departed or preparing to land at Montgomery Field.) I pulled off Regents Rd and stopped the car-almost shaking as I watched each light slowly fade away. I am a native San Diegan and have seen a few odd things in the sky but this is by absolute far the craziest thing I have ever seen in my entire life. I called Highway Patrol about ten mins after the sighting to see if anyone had reported seeing anything crazy in the sky tonight and they had not received any other calls yet. I am usually skeptical as most things can easily be explained but tonight I am still really freaked out and I cannot possibly be the only person that saw this tonight. It was too many lights and encompassed too big of an area............?????
