Description of sighting - Two yellow/white lights observed hovering offset in the sky East Northeast of NW Chico Way. After 30 seconds a third yellow/white light joined the first two, becoming the bottom left point of the triangle. All three lights hovered low in the sky not moving.

After 30 or more seconds the original offset lights faded from view as if moving away in line of sight.
