Location: San Francisco, CA
Shape: Formation
Duration:6 minutes
I saw three lights that stayed still, then moved with contrails and made a perfect row, again staying motionless in line.

I was standing at a bus stop facing East (approximately). Above the horizon, I first noticed a small white light which looked like a star, but there were no other stars visible in the sky.

In a moment I noticed an identical white light above and to the right. It started to move and left a clear con-trail.

After a half minute the first light also started to move upward with a contrail. They both stopped and stayed. A third light was then seen above and to the right of both. It moved down with a contrail and stopped so all three lights were in a perfect row, diagonal. They stayed for at least a minute perfectly still with no contrails visible anymore.

At that time my bus came and I left, but as the bus circled around (about 3 minutes later) for one last view, I still saw two of the lights staying. I took three pictures with a low res cell phone but I can't see anything on the images.
