I was sitting out side of the shop I work at and was having a cig. It was about 8:45pm, I was waiting to close the shop at 9:00pm. Watching the sky which was hazy but clear enough to see stars. There was a light layer of clouds coming from the west out of California. I suddenly caught a glimps of somthing flying over my head. I looked up to see a group of three reddish/orange, some what bright yet fuzzy looking lights flying at what seemed to be couple of hundred feet above my head but completely silent. It travel at a very fast speed from east to west in the direction of Luke Air Force Base. It travel from above my head all the way across the sky to disappear over single story house across the 30 foot wide alley behind my shop. This took a total of about 6 to 8 seconds, just long enough for me to jump out of the chair i was leaning back in and shouted what the hell is that. My receptionist looked out the door and said "what, what?!" Just as it was passing over the top of the roof of the house. Then another person I work with ran out the back door and was asking what I saw. I was describing it to her and all of a sudden a boomerang shaped cloud traveling the same direction east to west, was moving across the sky at an extremely fast speed too. The other clouds that were in the sky never changed,they were in the same place as they were when the event started.
