Sighting Details

A pair of bright amber lights hovering in the rural area southwest of where Murreta Rd meets Scott Rd. May have also been visible to those in Wildomar and the north side of Murrieta. The lights were very bright, steady (not pulsating or flashint), and stationary - not typical of the frequent air traffic in the area. We noticed the lights to the southwest when we exited I-215 on Newport Rd heading westbound. When we reached Murrieta Rd, we headed south, and approximately 1 mile from Scott Rd we noticed what appeared to be a thin smoke plume rising from the hills under the lights. It did not appear to be a fire - the point-like lights were visible through the smoke, hovering no more than a few hundred feet above the hills. From that location approximately halfway between Scoot and Newport, the lights and smoke plume were visible above the hills to the southwest. We considered that people may have been off-roading in the area, but the lights were not typical of how headlights appear at such a distance, they were just too bright and no movement was seen. An unidentified helicopter (a frequent sighting in my area) was also seen over the neighborhoods along Bradley Rd in Menifee while the lights were present to the southwest. Instead of shining it's searchlight down at the streets (another frequent occurrence around here), the chopper was training its lights horizontally as if trying to spot something else in the air. We lost sight of the chopper and did not see it approach the area where the lights were visible.
