I was driving N on 101 in Petaluma and saw 5 bright orange lights in the sky in the shape of the big dipper. Eventually, I realized it wasn't the big dipper. The orange lights were in perfect formation for a few minutes and then the 2 bottom lights came toward each other and I thought they would merge. It was a little tough to track b/c I was driving on the freeway. Everyone in front of me put on their breaks and slowed down to about 40 mph, to look at the lights. Some people were pointing and others were turning their heads to see. I looked at other cars as I pulled off, because I wanted to see if others noticed it and they did. I pulled off the freeway to park and get better view. The lights then moved into a diamond formation. As I watched, the two lights at the top began to flicker sort of in and out of view. One by one...they began to just fade out and disappear. They were relatively close to the ground and really amazing to see. I'm wondering if anyone else reported seeing them. It was about 9:30 - 10:00pm on Saturday night, 1/4/14.
