|Series of white lights in the southwestern sky.
I had just left the fire station and was driving westbound on Highway 28 east. I noticed what appeared to be fireworks up ahead, they were in the west southwest sky. I saw a large white light that turned into an a semi-circle of 4-5 smaller lights but same in light intensity. They lasted only a few seconds.
After I saw this happen at least 2 more times I took out my camera and switched to video mode in case they appeared again. While on a straight away I observed these lights again, they were in the southwest.
While driving, I turned on the camera and zoomed in on the lights. They were again 1 larger light then an arch/semi-circle of 4-5 smaller lights. They didn't appear to pulse brighter/dimmer, they just seemed to light together then go out together. They didn't look to me to be flares as they didn't change in elevation or go out separately, pulse as flares normally do. The lights appeared to stay on the same elevation. The video shows the light in the sky then go out. Not a lot of detail is available other then to show there were lights and that they went out together and no change of altitude was seen.
