Duration:7 seconds
Multiple lights in the sky, burnout.

Driving north from San Diego to Mammoth Mountain, just after civil twilight, our vehicle witnessed a series of lights lasting about 5-10 seconds in front of our vehicle (north). It was a definitive 5 lights burning heading in a left-wards vector with the lead light being the brightest. The driver of our car pointed it out. We all had a few seconds to look and remark on how we thought it was aliens. A few minutes (10 or so?).

We witnessed the same thing again. Tried to get video, but the event ended before we could get any video.

Perhaps this was meteors in the atmosphere, but this did not look like any shower I had witnessed before. Very amateur observation, but I figured I would report it.
