Location: El Cajon, CA
Shape: Triangle
Duration:10 minutes
Three red lights outline huge red triangle over San Diego Coutny sky.

3 bright red lights forming a isosceles triangle, but almost equilateral. You could barely make out a very faint line in a off-glow red. An even fainter off-glow red inside the formed triangle. The size was too huge to explain. It seemed far off in the distance but still large enough to be seen clearly, but to still realize that it was humungous. Maybe hundreds of feet between each light. Maybe 20 or more miles away. It was about thirty degrees above the horizon. It looked alot like flairs but there was no smoke. They were not rising or falling. This all took place over the course of 10 minutes or so. So there was plenty of time for an elevation change. Then it sort of rotated and pitched forward ever so slowly. The rotation was the lower left light seemed to move forward or maybe the right moved backward. As it levelled out it faded from view. Sort of just dimmed out. It didn't race away and take sharp turns or anything weird like that. I say weird, because what we saw seemed weird just a short while ago. It never came over our part of the county. # witnesses.Two middle thirty aged adults. M/F, some college, both work in the medical field. One helps SNF Nurses coordinate patient placement after hospital stay. The other works in the ER of a different hospital. The other witness, my neighbor, is a mid sixtyish, retired. His wife is a Hospice nurse and he did not want to wake her once it left. Both of tried to get a picture on our cell phones. I haven't talked yet to my neighbor to view his. Mine did not seem to pick it up. I'm an amateur with the five hundred billion app's that phones have. Anyway what we saw was valid.
