|We saw 2 bright red lights, one blinked on and off and dropped very rapidly after ~8 minutes, the other blinked out ` 2 min later.
We observed 2 bright red glowing lights the were over Gilbert, AZ and slightly north of Downtown Gilbert. They were slow moving. One light would go in and out and after about 8 minutes the one that was fading in and out dropped very rapidly while blinking on and off and disappeared below the treeline. The other light stayed in the same area for several more minutes then blinked out. Approximately 10 minutes later, there appeared to be what we thought were military palnes--4 in a row moving east to west in the area that the lights were. It also appeared the the air traffic was re-routed as where the lights were observed is in the same area that the airplanes are routed to land at Sky Harbor Airport.
