Longitude: 122.82 Degrees West

Weather: A Few Clouds Were Measured at 6,000 Feet and Skies Were Overcast at 9,500 Feet. Visibility Was 10 Miles. Winds Were Calm.

Description: Last night when we arrived home, my son pointed at the sky and asked "Mum, what is that?" There were four circular lights in the sky. They would meet in the middle and then swirl out to four different angles. Their shape would change slightly as they spread out. They were fluid and graceful. If it weren't for the repeated pattern, I might think it was something natural. They seemed misty, as if they were behind the clouds, rather than in front of them. They made no sound. There were no planes, balloons etc around. We watched them for several minutes. My daughter was frightened and began to cry, and so we went inside. I've never seen anything like them before. I can't seem to find a good explanation for them online.

Comments: I don't have a ready explanation for these lights. Perhaps the lights could be due to a reflection of "commercial promotion lights" off of the clouds, but this speculation.
