From my perspective it looked like a long line with 4 red lights on top and 4 white lights on the bottom.

I was taking pictures of the sunset from the 9th floor window of my hotel room at the Grand Hyatt San Diego on the night of 8/3/2013.

I did not know what I had captured until I looked at my pictures the next morning.

I immediately checked the Internet and discovered that there were sightings the previous night.

The picture has not been altered in any way.

((NUFORC Note: The source of the report is a very experienced photographer, who has her own website devoted to her high-quality photographs. Hence, she is quite knowledgeable about photography. Our opinion is that the lights are most like the strobes on an airliner, but the witness has stated that she did not see any aircraft in the sky, at the time she took the photograph. The exposure time of the photo, she reported to NUFORC, was one second. If the object was not a commercial or military aircraft, probably approaching San Diego Airport, we do not know what it could have been. PD))
