Amber orbs that glow bright, disappear and reappear.

Myself, staff, and guest were out on the patio of a Upscale North Scottsdale Resort when we saw a number of objects hovering in lower South West Phoenix, near, or past Squaw peak. These objects were very bright, and would flicker like a candle from very bright to going completely out. The objects would once again appear in another ( fairly close) area, in a different pattern. At one time ,there were four objects lined evenly spaced in a horizontal pattern. Later, it looked as though (to me) that 3 of the objects were close together (3 orbs in a packed triangle pattern) and that is when I saw them the brightest.

We ( myself, staff members/various guests) have seen these lights for the past couple of weeks, mostly in the same area...from behind squaw peak/west. There are at least two, but sometimes more. They seem amber in color, and once they light up..they do not move until they fade out and then they reappear. They are VERY bright in contast to the plethera of air traffic that we see going into sky harbor and Scottsdale.

Also, one night last week, an employee, myself, and a couple of guests saw a red orb move across the sky as though on a wave, like a boat would move on a lake, gently rocking up and down. It came from the south west, cut in front of us about 5 miles, and went behind the Mcdowell mountains.

I looked up on line the phoenix ufo sight ( I can't remember the name ) and sent a letter to Jeff Rense...Rense.com to see if anyone else is seeing these lights. I am just interested in what they could be. I KNOW that alot of people see them because guest ask me about them and point them out to me. ( Seen between 7:30 and 11:00) and I did not see any tonight 3/22/02.
