5 pink/orange lights rising over Bernal Hill in San Francisco

We had a small dinner party of 4 on New Years Eve 2013 in San Francisco. Every year we decide go up to our deck which overlooks the Bay and Bernal Hill for the fireworks around the city. We decided to head up to the deck at around 23:50.

We were all talking with one another then we noticed the lights coming up over the top of the hill and one of them swooped down in front of the hill and hovered. The others were moving into diamond and triangular shapes. They continued to hover when the fireworks around the city were going off as if watching a show.

It started to get creepy so we all decided to go inside. I posted what I had saw on Facebook and noticed the next day it wasn't just us that saw them, so did hundreds of others around the state. I can say for sure that they were not chinese lanterns. They were wobbling up and down like a dot but stationary at all times. It seemed like there was a thin transparent layer or curtain between us and them which made them look and feel surreal. Very strange!
