Location: San Diego, CA
Shape: Light
Duration: 2 minutes
Characteristics: There were lights on the object
2 bright reddish orange lights, moving up and away into the atmosphere

I live by the ocean and was coming up the back stairs and while looking at the stars I saw two lights. On clear nights I can see the lights on the jets coming down from L.A. and at first I assumed that's what I was looking at but immediately it became apparent something else was occurring. The lights were reddish orange, very bright, unblinking, at a tremendous height and were going up as well as northerly to southerly. They were spaced a fair distance from each other and the leading one was higher than the other for it disappeared, fading away as it went up before the other did. There was no noise, no blinking or strobing, and no flickering to speak of. I look at the stars and planes and helicpters at night all the time. I've seen satellites and comets. I have no idea what they were but by definition they were UFO's. I'm a licensed sea captain as well as a general contractor who's spent many a night stargazing while camping or out at sea.
