Location: Encinitas, CA
Shape: Light
Duration:7 minutes
08/12/2011 viewed eight lights and the next night at same time one light.

8/13/2011 On 08/12/2011 9:00pm. W Walking south on Neptune Ave in Encinitas, Ca we observed two bright lights and one or three tiny lights in the sky at about 15 to 20 degrees up from the horizon. I later discerned with a compass we were looking 310 degrees south east. The two main lights were very close to each other and not moving or making any sound. The small lighst were moving up toward the other two. Eventually the small lights vanished one at a time, then the left light of the pair of stationery lights began to grow dim and eventually dimish but this time I noticed it seemed to be traveling in a straight line away from my line of sight so there was no perception of it moving in any other direction but just getting tiny going straight away from me and finally disappearing.

As we were observing the behavior of these five ufos two more very bright ones were approaching from the south paired togerher as if hugging the coast line. The spacing of them and intensity was the same as the first bright pair. As they approached a position in a line under the first pair but they the lower slowly ascended toward the position of the first two. Then the top two began to flicker dim and then move straight away from my eye line like the others. First it was the left one then the right. Then the two new lights rose up and took the same positions as the earlier two. At his time another pair just like the last pair appeared coming up the coast from the south. And repeated the behavior of the last two. Within the span of ten to fifteen minutes they were all gone.

I shot video of the event with my phone and you can see the pair of lights and hear the commentary of myself and 5 or 6 other witnesses on the street.

My impression of the event was that I was observing an airport runway with planes queing up for take off.

The lights looked very similar to videos of the very well documented sightings in Arizona. Orangish yellow.

08/13/2011 9:10pm. We went to the same sight as the night before at 9:00 to see if the ufos appeared there again. It was more overcast then the night before. Nothing. But as we were leaving about 9:10 a single light appeared moving up from the south again, took the same position as the others did the night before, hung there for the same amount of time and then diminished and disappeared the same as the others had the night before. I shot video again of this ufo.

There was no sound at all
