A most peculiar sight lit up the sky Friday evening.

Video shared with FOX 2 in San Francisco shows a parade of “strange lights” slowly streaking across the sky. 

One video, shared with KTVU from above Vallejo, clearly shows the phenomenon.

It was posted to Twitter. The caption says it was spotted at around 9:30 p.m.

The narrator from the video, posted by @Tnez111, simply says “dude” in astonishment. Not much more could be said. 

Another video, from about 25 miles northeast in Vacaville, shows four distinct asteroid or comet like figures coursing through the night sky.

That video was posted by @KalzYoung at 9:46 p.m.

One person who shared video said they saw the lights heading southeast over San Ramon at 9:30 p.m. and that it lasted about 40 seconds until they weren’t visible anymore.
