My friends and I were sitting on Carmel Beach facing west. It was pitch black outside. Approximately three to four miles of the cost we saw six very bright lights hovering over the ocean. There were no blinking lights or beacons. They were very bright and very clear. I was in the US Coast Guard and I was in aviation, stationed at Air Station San Diego. I was trained in aviation and I had never seen anything like this. I had never seen or heard of any aircraft behaving in this manner. Nor have I seen anything like this since.
