Ian Gregor, a spokesman for the Federal Aviation Administration said that though air traffic controllers at Sky Harbor Airport witnessed the lights, they do not know the cause. Nothing appeared on radar and Gregor said the FAA will not be investigating.
Civilian and military aviation organizations said Tuesday the source of the strange red lights spotted over Phoenix Monday night remained unknown. An official with the North American Aerospace Defense Command, which monitors the skies for security threats, said Tuesday the organization did not know where the lights came from.

Yeah sorry guys these are lanterns. When any one of those lanterns are about to turn off the lights start to flicker. This would indicate that the fuel is running low and is about to shut itself off.

I hate to say this, but - those look exactly like those party hot air lanterns we've been seeing on other videos?
Also, what if that prophecy were actually a group of web buddies setting these off all over the place on the 22nd, still the 21st here, and this was practice tonight?
Sorry, I honestly could not stop myself. I've been on ATS to long.
When there is a sighting, such as this one, you're immediately telling it's fake, balloons

Those are burning too long to be lanterns to me. Plus what the other fellow said about it being too hot here for hot air vehicles to ascend in the summer. I will try to construct a lantern today and launch it tonight. If I do not have time, then I will certainly get to it tomorrow. I am off to search for diy lantern plans now.
