NBC 7 San Diego said reports began coming in to their office at around 10 p.m. with one person telling them, “[We] saw a row of three orange dots above the sky downtown. They never moved. Then suddenly there were five. And then six. They never went off in different directions, but the lights would just blink off on a few and then come back on a few minutes later. It’s was quite weird yet interesting.”
