Red lights in a triangle over Kettleman City, CA

On Feb. 9 I was driving back home to Fresno from Santa Barbara and saw some strange lights in the sky out the front windshield. After the event it seemed to take about ten min. to get into Kettleman City, traveling on Highway 41. If the direction of the road that we were on was 12 o'clock, the lights were at about 12:30. The lights were in a triangle position with equal distance between, if they were connected on the perimeter. There were seven lights that were red and that did not blink like an airplane. The lights then began to move an incredible distance in a short amount of time, going from the 12:30 position, to the 2:30 position within 5 seconds, and then stops. It seemed 20 miles off now, and about 10 times closer than when first spotted with the lights in the same formation. We then pulled over off the road to try to get video on the cell phone and that is when it elevates straight up, what had to be a couple of miles, stops for 2 seconds, and ! then accelerates off at about 3 o'clock until the lights faded out within 2 or 3 sec. It seemed odd that before we got back on the road after about 2 min., that no cars passed by us. It was odd because about two miles before we saw the lights, we passed two slower moving cars going in our direction.

I drew a picture of the lights when i got home. If you want to contact me i could fax the drawing. I told two people i trust the most about this and I'm not bringing it up again. It didn't go over to well, just not worth it.

I own a construction business in California. My perception of angles and distance are sharpened every week, so what I can not explain is how something could move so far, so fast, then stop, and then elevate straight up.
