Location: Santa Margarita, CA
Shape: Circle
Duration:3-5 minutes
2 bright white-cricle lights that changed shapes under a cloud, before dusk (clear sky).

Driving El. Camino Real westward towards Santa Margarita, CA. (approx. 4 miles away from town) during a busy traffic after work. Nearing dusk, clear bright darken blue sky with a noticeable large white cloud (west) that was a form of a circle with an opening in the middle with light-faded cloud beams coming out of it, below were 2-small very bright circles that seem to move/change shapes that got my attention to pull my car over and take pictures and a video.

After viewing the photos with enlargement, I can see the different formations that start as a circle, flattens out in a rectangle, and then to crescent shaped with opposite directions. 1-disappears before the other. The large cloud appeared approx. 10 mins longer after the shapes were gone.
