Cluster of bright lights moving erratically in San DIego County.

Driving south on the I-15 Freeway just south of Temecula and Fallbrook, CA, approaching the Highway 76 exit. My husband and I had just entered unincorporated San Diego County when from the car we saw an unidentifiable object in the low sky on the east side of the freeway.

We saw a cluster of between three to five very bright white lights. The cluster formed a sort of circle, but it changed formation. The cluster flew erratically over an area relatively low to the ground—this was an area of undeveloped land for the most part. It would move around, dip down towards the ground, then move upward very fast, then move around again in a formation, kind of dipping and shooting up and making sudden turns, all fairly low to the ground in ways that no plane or helicopter or other flying thing I know of could do. Certainly nothing of this size.

The lights on this were incredibly bright. My husband asked if we should turn around at the 76 exit and go back to try and see it again once we passed it. I didn’t think I could take a picture of it since it was moving so fast and erratically. My husband said it must be a drone. I went home and read about drones and none were described like this.

My husband is a lawyer and I have a Ph.D. in education. We have no particular interest in UFO’s. We did see the hovering amber lights over Orange County from our home in Dana Point earlier this year, but didn’t think to report it. This sighting was, to me, much more unsettling
