3 Red Beacons in Triangular Shape above Mount Helix at Midnight of NYE 2010.

My friend and I walked up to the peak of Mount Helix in Spring Valley, San Diego around 11:30pm on 12/31/09 to celebrate the New Year with short meditations and a wonderful view of the city. We gathered together in front of the large cross right before midnight and both said some kind of prayer and set intentions for ourselves, others and the world for this next year. We gathered together all of our negative energy and offered it up with appreciation for all the wisdom we gained from its challenges. As soon as we offered them up towards the sky, we instantly noticed 3 Bright Circular Red Beacons in a triangular shape in the sky slightly north of our position on the hill. They were just floating without any sound whatsoever and the light remained constant. My friend said he noticed some flickering of another color (possibly green and red) as he zoomed in with his digital camera but I did not notice this nor was this apparent to the naked eye. We thought! they might be helicopters at first but they seemed way too high, stationary, mute and close together to be so. After a couple minutes or so, they began to slowly float directly above our location and then slightly past. Their triangular shape began to grow smaller as the Beacons moved closer to each other. Then, at approx. 12:15am, one Beacon began to move off in the distance towards Downtown SD and the waterfront. The light eventually disappeared in the distance - again, no sound, no other blinking lights and very high up in the sky (nothing like a helicopter). The other remained for about 2-3 more minutes. Then they both began to fade as they seemed to travel farther and farther away from the surface of the earth. By this time, the lights were in between the constellation Orion and the Blue Moon. The lights, according to our best observations, did not simply dim and shut off but actually "flew" or floated farther and farther away from Earth until they finally dis! appeared from our view amongst the stars. We did not see any addition al sightings afterwards. We have short video clips from a Digital Camera of the lights throughout various times while they were present.

I am not sure what they were, but they were not frightening at all. We both felt it was somewhat of a sign or response to our prayers for guidance that we started the night off with.
