Witnesses to the sighting were myself age 51 (Fire Alarm System Inspector), Dad age 81 (Sales executive in aircraft bearings industry and Step Mom age 66 (HR for satellite parts manufacturer). Sighting was 122xxx Rios Rd, San Diego, California. We had arrived home from dinner at 18:00 driving two separate cars. My Dad and I pulled into the driveway and got out while my Step Mom was already inside. I was looking up at the the sky because it was a beautiful clear night. I noticed one round dim light that was above me traversing the sky. Object was not blinking and moved at a steady pace in one direction. Object appeared to be higher than a plane and I thought it could be a satellite. Within 10 seconds I noticed two more objects exhibiting the same behavior but moving in different directions. I felt the speed could have been similar to what you would see with a plane but the objects did not appear to be conventional aircraft due to lack of blinking lights and a! ltitude. I witnessed these lights for approximately 1 minute when my step mother came out of the house and noticed a row of approximately 10 to 12 lights, travelling west to east, about 60 degrees from the horizon and north of the front of the house. At this point all 3 of us witnessed these lights and we felt that we were observing something unusual. I watched the lights for about 10 seconds when I attempted to use my phone for video but could not capture the lights so, I went back to watching them. Some audio was captured of our reaction. Lights were dim, white and appeared to be evenly spaced approximately 3 to 4 feet between each one from our perspective. The row of lights did not appear to be one object. They appeared to be the size of small to medium stars. As we were looking to the north from the driveway, the lights travelled slightly left (north west) of us and as they reached slightly to the right (north east) of us, one by one, each light disappeared in order sta! rting with the furthest light on the right until it got to the! last on e. The total approximate time one light would travel to the time it disappeared was approximately 8 seconds. No aircraft were observed in the area during the account. In my opinion, the lights were definitely not due to atmospheric condition, reflection, flares, balloons or any known aircraft. We have never observed anything like it.
