UFO Sighting in California on 2017-08-02 05:53:00 - Bright light brighter than residential street lamps. larger than car lights. triangle formation above tree tops near residential homes on a elevated hill.
I was configuring a spectrometer and security camera to record the morning skies at my residence. it was a bright sunny morning at 5:50am. i often make a photograph of the view from the window every morning at sunrise. i noticed an extremely over-powered bright light. it was larger than street lamps. i noted the bright light was at least 10ft in diameter based on the size of the windows of a house on the top of the hillside over 50 feet further away from the bright lights. the light was above a tree line area where there were no houses. the other two lights were smaller and dimmer and they were the size of what a street light should be. interestingly the three lights form a triangle. two dim lights to the left and to the right a larger bright light. all lights were white. the two dim lights were the size of a starlight. i can absolutely say the bright light is the size of an aspirin. the lights did not move. i recorded the lights in 1080i video with a sony dsc-tx55 digital camera. the largest light dimmed after 1 minute and 13 seconds. then the smaller top left light dimmed after 2 minutes and 10 seconds. the smaller bottom left light was not visible after the the largest light dimmed. i noticed the time on my digital camera is 7 minutes in advance. i always synchronize the time on the camera with the computer or mobile phone. i cannot be sure if the time change is from the camera itself and the rechargeable battery. my thoughts were this could be a bright led lantern. it seems unlikely the led light would be that size. it could be earth lights from nature. then i remembered dr. lynne d kitei photographs of the orbs from phoenix, arizona.
