I was outside with my dog and happened to look over my shoulder and saw 5 orange glowing orbs hovering approxiamatley 2-3 miles away. it is hard to say but they were no higher than 1000 ft in altitude. i was stunned by what i saw because immediately i could tell these were not any conventional aircraft that i have ever seen. first they hung in the air in a triangular formation with two above . then they all shifted into a perfect straight line. i tried to capture it with my cell phone camera but was unable so i called my wife outside. she saw what i saw and was equally amazed. a family out on an evening walk also witnessed it as did my landlord and his partner. also a car pulled up and asked us if we were looking at the lights. they disappeared and we went back into the house. i had a feeling that wasn’t it so i went right back outside and within a minute the started to reappear this time we witnessed a total of seven of them in strange patterns. appearing and disappearing. eventually they all disappeared and we also notice there was absolutely no air traffic over phoenix. helicopters made a beeline out of the area. it was if the whole area was cleared of all air traffic for about 20 minutes which typically this time of evening and also being thanksgiving there is usually lots of air traffic. i’m am certain this was witnessed by many people in phoenix and yet nothing on the news.
