3 lights in the sky over San Jose, CA on 04/01/2013 - 20:31 / 8:31pm

April 1, 2013 8:31pm PST San Jose, CA 95128 Facing South by South East Angle of Elevation ≈ 50 degrees Weather Conditions: Momentarily clear with rolling blanket of clouds coming in from southwest-to-east Report: -- For a period of approximately 20-30 seconds I witnessed 3 moving lights. They were 2 to 3 times the size of the reference stars visible that evening, and about twice as bright, coloring in, like stars, white/blue. The 3 lights were moving independent of each other, though retaining a general left-to-right margin distance of approximately 3 1/2 to 4 inches thumb-to-finger distance at arms length (I’m 5’10 1/2”). Each light "moved quickly”, which is to say that within this margin, these lights traveled the full distance in slightly-curved lines with tight, elevated/declined curves at the margins in about 1/2 second. They did this sporadically about 5 times within the 30 seconds. When not “moving quickly”, they seemed to stay still, though there was some “drifting away” in what appeared to be the same south by southeast direction.

After witnessing this event, I rushed into the house to get the kids and the camera; by the time I returned (1 to 1-1/2 minutes later), the thick-blanket cloud cover moving in from the southwest had obscured the lights
