Location: Santa Barbara, CA
Shape: Triangle
Duration:~10 minutes
Triangular, red and green lights, hovering and moving, varying from 300-1000+ feet in Santa Barbara, CA, 2 witnesses.

Two of us just saw something hovering and flying over Santa Barbara, CA, starting at about 11:30pm, near Hollister and Modoc Rd., when we went outside to get in the car.

It seemed to come from the foothills north of Rte 54 and head toward the ocean, eventually hovering very low, maybe 200-500 ft over the ground near us.

Then slowly, stopping to hover and slightly alter direction several times and going much higher, over a period of maybe 10 minutes from our vantage point, it disappeared over the foothills on the other side of Rte 101 and north of Rte 54.

It was triangular or a thick wing shape, with red and green lights, I think more green than red, possibly 4 green and 2 red. When directly overhead, we heard a sort of buzzing/whirring sound.
