Lights over Scottsdale early Feburary of 2001.

While on a business trip my supervisor and I were driving around Scottsdale after dinner. We were looking for an open drugstore and were in a strip mall parking lot when I happened to look up towards the sky. I saw 5 or 6 pale grayish white lights in a row on an angle (imagine a backslash only dot it with lights) slowly moving across the sky from right to left. I alerted my supervisor and he confirmed that he saw them also. Both of us had been in the aviation industry for several years each and very familiar with different aircraft types and their lighting and did not recognize these lights to be anything we had seen before. We watched them for a minute or two, we even rolled down the windows in the car and craned our necks to get a better view. We noticed that the objects did not seem to make any sound. We asked two local men walking in the parking lot if they know what they were and they responded that they did not. We left shortly after speaking with them.

Unfortunately I am unfamiliar with the Scottsdale area and I am unsure as to the direction we were looking when we saw the lights I believe it was southeast, however, I may very well be wrong.
