Low, fast moving craft over San Diego, California with 4 dimly lite lights which were in the shape of a chevron

I was smoking outside at the corner of West Lewis and Falcon Streets in San Diego at 6:05pm this evening, Thursday, November 5, 2015. l was looking almost straight up and saw a very low set of 4 dim lights coming from the NW and heading SE. There was a lead light with 2 lights on the right and 1 light on the left.

These evenly spaced lights formed a chevron. These lights were very dim. They were yellow white in color. I could see there was a solid craft in between the lights and behind the lights; but the lights were too dim to illuminate the outer edges of the craft, so I can't really say what exactly the shape of the craft was. I can only say for sure that there was a solid craft in between and behind the lights.

The craft was partially illuminated by the dim yellow white lights, but also from the city lights. This craft was very low. It must have been under 500 feet. I first saw it in the NW. It flew almost directly over me; maybe at 85 degrees, at its closest point. It was completely silent. It was moving fast. I first saw it just coming from the NW and it was going out of view being blocked by houses within 4 or 5 seconds.

There were other aircraft visible on the horizon; but this area of the sighting is near the San Diego airport, so there are almost always aircraft in the horizon.
