Shape: Triangle
Duration:~90 seconds
6 bright lights. Brighter than stars, form a triangle, pulse and then seemingly dissappear as 1 light strobes/pulses br and dissappears

Driving from Valley Center, Westbound on around mile 3 from I-15 before the W Lilac merges into 1 road headed toward the A.M. P.M. Gas station at Hwy 76. I witnessed 6 bright star-like lights just above the horizon due West in the shape of what looked like the constellation Ursa Minor. The lights were so bright almost strobe like, yet with the fire of diamonds. My attention was caught so much as I fixated on the lights attempting to figure them out.

I drove on and kept looking. The 6 lights seemed to get even brighter; out loud I murmured to myself "What ((deleted)) are those!??" Within a short span the 6 lights moved across the sky far too rapidly for any plane/heicptor. I was so captivated I almost crashed and realizing I was only doing about 15 I slowed to a crawl. No traffic in front or behind me. The lights organized simultaniously while flickering into 3 bright defined light sources forming a tilted iscocoles triangle, then a tilted equilateral triangle. My jaw dropped, as faintly I saw what was a mass with the light reflecting, giving body and contour to what apeared to be the underside of the triangle. Keeping my eye on it, the road, and my dog gets ancy because now I'm out loud sharing how dumbfounded I am. The 3 bright lights get even brighter and shimmery and suddenly go blank like a lightswitch turned them out as the brightest of all the lights illumunates dead center of the silouetted shape. The light strobes flashes bright once and disappears.I remember it almost as if an old TV had powered off, the way the screen pulls into one pinpont then gone. I pull over up the road at the gas station and draw what I had just witnessed. I thought about the incident over and over for about 4 hours, made a few more notes and went to sleep. I later shared this with a friend of mine and until now have kept it to myself and have continued to draw the shape I made out during the encounter. I have seen many strange lights/aircraft around the area, all very explainable for there is a nearby military! base. This was by far awestriking, perplexing, and I was rendered absolutely speechless, and slackjawed all night afterwards. I can only speak for myself and my interperetation. "The 1st in my lifetime!" - unexplained
