I couldn't take any pictures I live in West Mesa and the lights were way East. Over Queen Creek area. Lots of my friends and family started calling me right when the lights started happening so I went out to my balcony and there they were. Some people got some pretty good videos.

I know some people will say they are flares from a plane but if they are flares why do they dispensary right away. Typically if its a flare it will stay ignited for a short period of time. Kinda nuts. I only witnessed the later 3 lights when it was dark out.

Article and video here.

It was pretty cool to see and stopped soon after it started. What does ATS think???

Looked like the Phoenix Lights too, same basic shape and pattern, but looked much smaller.

Thanks for sharing - fascinating incident!

The Phoenix lights were just flares and planes. These lights look exactly like flares. Very short-living flares, but flares nonetheless.

That is exactly what flares look like.

As for flares, absolutely NOT! Watch closer! Flares do NOT behave like this. Furthermore, the news dept called the military and ruled that out. (see link and quotes below)
Excellent post, thanks!


Luke Air Force Base said they stopped flying around 5:30 p.m. on Tuesday. So those lights weren't from them.

The Arizona National Guard and the Federal Aviation Administration all said the lights were not from them.

3tv had people reporting hearing/seeing helicopters around the time of the "sighting" too. Looked exactly like flares to me as well.

Flares. I swear people, unless you see a structure it's just nothing but lights....flares

For those unfamiliar with the area, youll pass dozens of hangers of dozens of active aircraft manufacturers on your trip to the airport.

Aviation is huge here. Drones, tourists, hobbiests, commercial, testing both military and not, heli patrols with spotlights nightly.

From the darkness of the Goldfield mountains, it appears the entire Metro is being invaded on a nightly basis. Cant say I like the feeling of cluttered airways, or the notion that I should adapt to camera steered devices waking me up at night, but Ive identified most of the anomalies as strings of manned craft illuminated oddly by the distant city lights below.

You can even dispel Flat Earth, by observing the dots get higher as they approach the runway. Light source is the only thing that makes these bodies seem odd. No, I wont bother watching the linked video.
