Two strange lights in the South Eastern sky in S.F. Oakland Bay Area.

Today 1/24/2019, at approximately (18:49) 6:49PM -8 GMT, I was outside observing the night sky as I often do, I noticed two bright objects that were out of place in the constellation Orion. They shimmered from orange to bright white. Orion was rising in the south eastern sky and these objects were flying in a wedge formation just below the feet of Orion. "There shouldn't be anything that bright there!" I thought to myself. The objects were more luminous then our brightest star Sirius I also thought which drew my attention to them in the first place. The lead object was even more so then the trailer. This viewing lasted approximately ten seconds. The first object slowly dimmed out of sight still high in the sky, I'd say 30 degrees from the horizon.

Then the other about one to two seconds later. The movement seems to give me an indication to altitude in my opinion. I view the night sky almost on a daily basis and have seen many things such as satellite's, meteors, high flying military and passenger aircraft. I cannot say what they were or were not.

I can only say THESE LIGHTS WERE VERY STRANGE INDEED! If anyone else in the San Francisco/Oakland California bay area happened be out at (18:49) 6:49PM observing the south eastern sky and saw this event please don't be afraid to speak up. I almost didn't want to say anything due to the stigma that go's with "U.F.O.'s however we all do need to know what's flying above our heads.

Special thanks for the encouraging words to and that you do for the truth, Peter Davenport
