Location: Huntington Beach, CA
Shape: Triangle
Duration:5 minutes
4 glowing, orange, small, triangular lights

I saw 4 triangular, brilliant, glowing, orange lights sitting stationary, in a spaced out row, at about 45 degrees. Holding my arm out, they were the size of my smallest fingernail. They were stationary about 3 minutes, the glow was mesmerizing. The three on the left, one by one, drifted up twice their original altitude to the southwest in one minute, and vanished. The fourth one drifted south in one minute and vanished.

My impression is they were about 5 miles away. I saw approximately 10 low airplanes in the immediate area, half appearing lower and half appearing higher in the sky than the orange lights. Actually, the orange lights were not far from the John Wayne Airport, and air traffic was everywhere. I saw no helicopters at any time.

I am an educated 59 year old female, familiar with the UFO phenomenon.
