Location: Hemet (general area), CA
Shape: Formation
Duration:60 seconds
Looked like a low flying jet, but soon rested on the top ridge of a small hill.

I was headed east on Highway 74 (Florida Ave.) to pick up my daughter from Heritage High School. I first thought this object to be jet aircraft that was extremely low. I live near March Air Force Base, so I believed it to be preparing for landing. Changed my mind when realizing it was way too low for that to happen safely. It appeared to be heading in a northwesterly direction. Then the object seemed to stop and rest on the top ridge of a small hill. I picked up my daughter at this point and told her what I saw. While it was moving it had 3 white lights. 2 on the ends and the middle one was much bigger and extremely bright. The middle light seemed to fluctuate like a flare or welder’s arc.

While the object was stopped there were only 2 lights visible. This is what my daughter saw as well. I drove closer and saw 2 other people in their car that saw the 2 light configuration, but not the 3 floating/flying lights.

I dropped my daughter off at home and went to a high point to see if any action was visible. I could only see one light on the ridge but to the right was a blinking light moving back and forth. Looked like it could have been movement similar to a helicopter, but it moved too quickly to be so.

Hope to see if anyone reports something similar.
