Shape: Formation
Duration:15 minutes
Unidentified lights fly in and out of formation high in the night sky over east San Diego

I was in the jacuzzi looking up at stars as I do often. I noticed approximately 6 or more very bright lights in a row moving from north to south. The lights were very high in the sky, at the level of the highest stars I could see. They all blinked separately, yet in close intervals. At one point, one of the lights broke away from the line and traveled back in a northern direction. It quickly shot back into the line yet followed behind the line a bit.

I ran down our stairs to the back door to call my wife and daughter. They quickly came outside and saw what I described above. The line of lights had moved quite a bit south by now. As my wife looked closely (her eyes are better than mine), she noticed more than 6 lights. She said she could see faint lights in an oval or triangular shape behind the brighter lights. She and my daughter saw the lights moving at a slow pace.

The row of lights often changed formation, but ended back in a row eventually.

My daughter tried to video the lights with her iphone, but they were too high to film. We did shoot for a while and you can hear our audio.

After the lights disappeared in the southern sky, we all confirmed with each other that we had never seen anything like this. And, we believe it was a UFO.

At one point we thought it might be the international space station, but the lights moved.
