Observed a varying number of very bright, stationary lights to the south of Phoenix. Most of the time there was one very bright, orange colored, light, but as many as six were visible at one time during a 90 minute period from 21:00 to 22:30. While the lights did not appear to be moving much, there was some movement. The one very bright light seemed to be stationary, and several others, possibly miles away in distance appeared and disappeared at random. At one time, six could be seen at one time. Local news stations reported getting a lot of calls. The next day the military said it could have been flares...HOWEVER, I cannot imagine how a flare could remain in one place for as long as these were visible. I observed ONE identical light the previous night, November 18, which was visible for 45 to 60 minutes...it also did not move but finally disappeared abruptly not to be seen again that night. I was accompanied by my 14 and 10 year old sons while this observation was made.
