|Light Formation over Ocean Cove Campground, California
Exiting my tent at Ocean Cove Campground at approximately 02:00 to 02:30, I looked toward the eastern sky because movement caught my periphery. Just north of my location and about a half mile away was a hill. To the south of me and another half mile away was another hill opening up a geological saddle.
About 15 degrees up from ground level, without being able to determine altitude, distance or speed, I noticed what appeared to be 3 points of light in a triangular formation, emerging from behind the northern hill. The lights were yellow to orange in color moving (again depending on distance and altitude) quickly in a southerly direction.
Another two lights emerged immediately following the first three, then another three in the same general formation as the first.
They were all moving in a southerly direction. The second group of three broke from the overall formation and headed either east or down. The two “connecting” the two groups of three faded away.
The original three dipped lower then rose, moving independently, yet staying in a general triangular formation.
After about 10 minutes, the first three faded to points and then disappeared.
There was no way of knowing if there was noise associated with the movement of these lights as the ocean waves were quite loud.
Looking at a map, directly to the east of Ocean Cove Campground by approximately 40-50 miles is the Charles M. Schulz Sonoma County Airport.
