Duration:10 minutes
Line of eight orange lights that didn't move. It appeared, a few lights went off, came back on, then all went off simultaneously.

I went outside to get my mail at around 19:00 or 19:05. As I was turning around to walk back across the street and up my driveway, I noticed a line of lights to the north of my location. My street is on a hill, so it is easy to see far away to the north. As you look north during the daytime, you'd see a mountain in the direction of the UFO. However, the UFO was above the mountain, so it couldn't have been on the side of the mountain.

Anyways, I was staring at it and it looked like it was right over the city of Escondido. The shape was a slanted line of orange lights; the right side was the side that was slanted up. It was fairly small, so I couldn't resolve the lights with my naked eyes.

After looking at it for a few minutes, all of the lights went off except for a few on the very left side. I ran to grab my binoculars (they are 15x70), and when I returned, I saw three small, close together lights through my binoculars. I ran back to my house to get a tripod! because my hands were shaky, and when I returned, all the lights were back on.

I saw eight small, orange lights almost in a straight line, except the lights on the sides were curled up, as if the lights were on a saucer. I couldn't discern a craft; I only saw the lights. I stared at it until all the lights went off simultaneously. They just vanished.

During the whole time I watched the lights, none of them moved; they all stayed in the same place relative to each other and relative to the ground. I watched them until about 19:15, which was when they disappeared.
