Location: Berkeley, CA
Shape: Formation
Duration:20 minutes
Bright hovering lights that suddenly move together or apart, dimming then brightening in a bizarre dance for ~20min

Extraordinarily bright lights floating over Oakland or further South, 2 main lights that hovered together for 15 minutes, sometimes still sometimes coming together into an extremely bright light, then suddenly dimming, then separating again...

This dance went on in different variations for awhile, with small lights suddenly emerging from the two large ones, orbiting or zinging around the big ones, then reuniting and disappearing.

Mid-way through siting, a plane took off from SFO just west of the lights. Couldn't tell if it was north or south of the lights, but wasn't that far away from my vantage point high in the Berkeley Hills.
