Near Palo Verde Nuclear Power Station, lights seen moving around into a triangular-shaped formation.

Around 22:00 near the Palo Verde Nuclear Power Station roughly 20-30 miles west of Buckeye, Arizona, my mom, sister, and I noticed a bright light in the sky, with a fainter light below it. Suddenly, the bright light went away, and two more fainter lights apeared. The lights moved around until they were in a triangular-shaped formation. Some lights apeared to fade out, but as we drove closer, we saw that they actually went behind a cloud, then reappeared. We also noticed that one of the lights was actually a jet, we could tell by two blinking red and white lights at either side. We could tell the other two lights weren't jets because they seemed to hang in the sky, and they had no other lights on them, like a jet probably would. By then we passed underneath the lights, and moved on. Other lights, unknown number, were noticed along the horizon, not known if they had anything to do with the lights seen before.
