Location: La Mesa, CA
Shape: Triangle
Duration:4-6 minutes
3 bright red lights hovering high in the sky in an elongated triangle pattern just after midnight 2010 in La Mesa, Ca

Tonight at appx 12:10am there were 3 bright red lights in the sky in a stretched out triangular formation directly overhead on my patio in La Mesa. Compared to a clock they were at appx 11:00 and 1:00 with the elongated triangle ending at 6:00. My home is in Mount Helix, Ca about 1/2 mile up Fuerte Drive from the I-8 Freeway heading east, my home is on the north side of Fuerte Dr and I was on my patio facing south. These lights were directly overhead as was the moon, they were just east of the moon, my husband and I both saw these and he and I both wondered if someone launched a very high balloon in the sky but they just sat there and hovered, I have never seen anything like this in my life, I’m 55. The entire triangle formation would be covered in length by holding appx 3 fists towards the sky from the two lights above to the one below, the two lights above were appx 1 fist apart from what I recall. They were much bigger than the surrounding stars like the ! size of an airplane light though they didn’t move and hovered directly over my home in this elongated triangle pattern for many minutes, maybe 4-6 from the time we both saw them. I went inside and came back out and saw they had moved toward the west and were still very bright, I went inside to find my camera and when I came back outside they were gone, no trace of them anywhere. It is crystal clear in the sky tonight and I have a great view, they were not completely round, maybe just slightly elongated circles of lights. There was also no audible sound like a plane engine, whatever this was it just hovered for many minutes without making any sound. I don't know if this was 3 separate things or one object with lights in a triangle shape.
