Full Description of Event/Sighting: Around 10:30 p.m., July 4, 2011 my wife and I saw 3 light above Aliso Viejo, CA. at Wood Canyon and Aliso Creek.
Three bright red orange lights, appearing, then disappearing, merging into two, then one, then splitting again, then one again. It flashed a few colors and disappeared.
I keep hearing about these Chinese lanterns. Maybe it was that, but they seemed to move in different directions intentionally. More of a controlled, intelligent fashion.
