Location of Sighting: El Cajon, California
Date of Sighting: January 25, 2017
Time of Sighting: 5:20 AM PST
Description: I went outside around 5:20 AM this morning. I looked up at the stars. One of them was moving. It was alternating between going in circles and zigzagging all in a rather tight area, but enough to be honestly noticeable. I watched it for about 10 minutes and it was still up there when I went back inside.
It was in the Southwestern sky above the Pacific Ocean from San Diego, California. I thought it was a star at first, it was so far away. Then I saw it was moving rapidly in the manner I described above. It was too far away to make out the color of the lights. It couldn’t have been an aircraft from the earth since it was moving so erratically. I don’t think my cell phone would be able to capture, but I gave it a try. At 5:45 it was still out there and I spotted two others. I tried to film them, but they were too far away for my cell phone to pick up. I looked a little to the North of the first one I spotted and saw another one, farther out, moving around the same way. Then I looked to the South of the first one I saw and there was another, equally as bright as the first one, but at a greater distance in the skies than the one to the North of the first one. There were three of them! They were circling, moving in straight lines, turning to the left or right and circling again. I do hope someone else has seen them, or that some of the big telescopes may have caught them.
