Duration:15 minutes
4 bright, large orange orbs of light in night sky lasting 15 munutes

I was driving home on the freeway on Aug. 25, 2014, at approx. 8:45 pm. I noticed 2 very bright orange orbs in the sky to my right. They were very bright. They were horizontal to each other, side by side and the distance between them stayed the same.

There were tall trees along the fwy so from time to time I lost sight of them, but whenever there was a clearing I could see them. Although I was traveling at 65 mph, I never got closer to the orbs of light, nor did they get any farther.

For a period of 3-4 minutes I lost sight of them due to trees but then I got to a point where the sky was very visible. There they were but now they where in front of me, slightly to my left, but now there were 4 bright orange orbs, 2 that were verticle and next to it 2 that were horizontal. They seemed to be stationary in the sky, very bright and had to be seen by everyone traveling down the freeway as well as others who live in the area.

There are some news reports about it as well as youtube videos. The news said it was probably flares from Camp Pendleton during a training exercise. I don't believe that at all.

These orbs stayed in the same position in the sky for 14-15 minutes. If they were flares, then they were anti-gravity flares. Camp Pendelton is @ 35 miles to the south of where I was and if they were flares from Pendelton they would not have appeared so big and bright nor stay fixed in the sky for 14 -15 minutes. Flares descend, these did not. I have seen flares in the past and these were not flares.
