April 1, 2013 8:30 pm PST San Jose, CA 95128 Facing South by South East Angle of Elevation ; 50 degrees
Weather Conditions: Momentarily clear with rolling blanket of clouds coming in from the west.

Report: Standing on my second floor balcony, I noticed what at first appeared to be a flock of seagulls, flying in formation. Upon further study I realized they were not birds, but rather a group of bright lights. They were bigger and brighter than the stars that were in the sky. There were approximately 5-6 of these lights in a vertical line, moving toward the southeast. Below the line of lights were 3 individual lights, traveling in the same direction, but moving independently of the others. These individual lights were moving in curving, back-and-forth patterns, sporadically. I continued to observe them for about 2-3 minutes, until they became obscured by the clouds that were rolling in.
