I saw 4 groups of small glowing orange lights generally traveling North, one of which made a manuever impossible to any known aircraft.

I am a 35 year old legal assistant and my girlfriend is a 25 year old waitress. We went up to my roof on New Years Eve with the idea that we might catch the last of the celebratory fireworks going off in the downtown or marina area of San Francisco. We saw a little bit of fireworks but not much. We decided to say on the roof for a moment to enjoy the stars. It had been cloudy and raining for days and having a clear sky was something special that night.

Suddenly we saw 3 or 4 glowing orange lights moving North almost directly overhead. They were small, about the size of your thumbnail, and unblinking. By definition, these were of course UFO's. They were not like any other flying object either one of us had seen before.

We stayed in place on the roof watching the sky to see if anything else appeared and about 1 minute later we saw the same thing. These were also travelling North. Again, maybe 4 minutes later we saw a larger group headed North. This time I remembered to count them. There were 8 of them. This time I was watching very intently to see if there was any movement that would show them to be using anti-gravity technology. I was looking for any sudden sharp turns or accelerations. There was one object that made a sudden change of course. It had been traveling in a 3 o'clock position to an object then suddenly moved to a 6 o'clock position. There is no way any known aircraft could have made that maneuver.

About 6 minutes after that we saw 2 more of the same lights traveling East. We waited another 10 minutes then we began to get cold and went inside.
