the red lights shined into the back of the car.. just like the police have.

i was 18 at the time and me and three friends were just leaving the town of mariposa after we just bought some beer and we were going to a party about 10miles out side of town...we got about 2miles out and going up this hill....and there were no other cars on the road....and it was dark..when all of a sudden ...these bright red lights shined threw the back window of the car...we turned to look at them..but they were so bright and close i couldnt see what was behind them...we thought for sure it was the local police and we were busted for being under age with the driver pulled over and stopped on the side of the road..and the red lights stopped behind we sat there waiting for the police to come up to the car for about 5 mins...i was in the back seat and i told the other 3 guys that i,m going to get out and see what was i did..when i got out and looked behind us..the red lights were not behind us...but on a hill a 100 feet up ..from our left side..and when they saw me they started moveing towards us...everybody got out and saw them to...when it got about 200 feet up and to the left..we saw that it was 5 red lights ..4 and 1 in middle about 30 feet apart from each going slow above the trees with no between the lights and around them it was black and i could see the stars...we couldnt see how they were connected together ..becaused they moved we were looking at them they dimmed down from a bright red to a light pink..and went out or dissapeared....and then nothing but a black sky and stars. all 4 of us saw that...and we hadnt even started drinking yet..what ever it was we know it was real....
