Location: Santa Cruz, CA
Shape: Light
Duration: two min
Characteristics: There were lights on the object
Bright light hover over Santa Cruz, CA

When we got back home after eating out we heard a huge explosion which sort of rocked the place not unlike a big aerial bomb you hear on the fourth of July.

A few minutes later maybe 10 min later we took the dog out for a walk. Down two blocks from our house and now facing north we saw 5 bright lights hovering way up high in the sky. They were a yellow-orange color. They initially hovered in the sky in no distinct formation. Slowly they started to float(?) downward and one by one faded out. It was so dramatic that a car stopped and 4 people jumped out to look at it.

Now I realize that this could have been a firework but it would have to have been an industrial/military type thing because these lights were really high in the sky. There is no mention of it in the news so far.
