4-5 dim amber lights in chevron formation, silent, extremely high speed, South to North.
Capitola CA: June 4, 2007, 21:43.
I witnessed an unidentifiable flying object(s).
While taking my dog down the steps from the second floor apartment, I looked up at the sky as I stepped off the last step. Facing South, I saw at about 45 degrees azimuth an array of 4-5 dim orange or amber, round lights in an obtuse "V" pattern, almost a straight line.
The lights were smaller in diameter than a pencil eraser and moving north at extremely high speed. They were silent. I couldn’t comprehend what it was, and I turned to watch as they passed over.
As I tried to identify the shape, the left-most light deviated from the formation by increasing its distance from the next closest light, while the others maintained the same formation. The formation traversed approximately 120 degrees of the visible sky between apartment buildings in 3 or 4 seconds. I could not tell their altitude.
At the same time, a commercial airliner was crossing the sky at nearly the same vector, but a much higher altitude. After watching the amber light formation, the airliner seemed to take an impossibly long time to cover the same distance.
I think I saw a UFO!
