Via CBS:

In the video, a series of lights fly in formation above the city before appearing to take a diamond shape and eventually disappearing.

Several commenters on the Mission Mission blog said that they had also noticed the aircraft.

The video, which shows seven lights in a row, was shot by Enrique Barrios with his cellphone.

“Looked like flame, you know, fireballs in the sky,” Barrios said in an interview with CBS 5.

David Shelley took pictures as the lights hovered over him early Sunday Morning. “Kind of looked like a fiery, floaty thing,” he said.

Witnesses said the lights flickered on and off, then took different shapes.

What do you think? Ball lightning? Swamp gas?

    Flares maybe?

  2. My totally wild guess is going to be those little candle powered “paper balloons”, as alluded to in the story.

    Probably a good chance that some demographic in San Francisco launches those as part of their holiday festivities.

      looks like the candle kites you find in Asia
      the last time I saw that many together
      was on Koh Lanta beach in Thailand
      but I’m not aware of any Asian holiday around this time

  4. There are some pretty neat chinese lanterns out there… Wake up America! floating fire is awesome!… We also have a local dude here in utah county that likes to play jokes and send up floating flares and junk like that, so maybe I just think too rationally about what lights in the sky actually means… I dunno.
