strange lights in the fog

I saw something quite strange on my way home this morning as I was driving (east on I-80/west on I-580) across the Berkeley flats.

There was a heavy marine layer and I saw what I thought at first was lightning coming through but quickly realized that the lights were rhythmic, one on the left then on the right, left, right and so on.

This happened about three times when I decided to grab my camera and film it.

As I was reaching for it, the light changed to a wide beam coming down in front of me with the source seemingly just out of sight in the clouds. That happened twice I think and stopped just as I got my camera rolling so I don't think I got any of it on video.

I want to make clear that the source of the flashing lights appeared to be deeper into the marine layer than the beam of light which appeared to be just barely in it and that this layer started maybe 40 to 50 feet above the freeway.

All the lights were white.
