golden orange lights seen on and off for about 45 min in arizona on wed. 14 april 2003 1 to 7 lights seen at a time

My wife and I were heading to mesa Arizona. We arived in wikieup arizona around 8:50 pm and we drove straight through with out stopping the town is very small and takes about 5 min to get through. Once we got out of the town we drove another 5 to 10 min when I saw 2 Very large gold lights with an orange hugh to them. As soon as my wife looked at them they both disappeared at the exact same time. she tryed to tell me they were most likely planes that had turned from us but there were at least 6 planes in the air that we could see all of them had blinking lights and were only 1/5 the size of the strange lights we had just seen and the planes were no where near as bright. A few min up the road my wife noticed the computer compus in my suv was now saying C witch we had never seen it do. a min or two after she pointed this out the lights reapeard on the right side of the road and once agian as soon as we spoted them they just vanished. by this time I was feeling very freaked out do to the fact that besides other people driving on this road we were alone and I was in the midle of the desert with my wife witch I felt as though I need to protect but I felt very vonurable. about 5 to 10 min down the road we both saw one apear right above the mountian off to the right of us it was followed by 6 other identical lights that apeared right next to it one after another I had just enough time to screach to a full stop, throw the suv in park and open the door and then they vanished in just the opisit order that they appeared the last one that appeared was the first one to vanish and so on after standing out side for a few min we started driving agian when I saw a single one of the lights to are left about the say area we saw the first 2 lights it took a bit longer to vanish then the others. im guessing around 45sec after this we came up in to a mountain area that last for about 10 min once through this you drive over a narrow bridge on the oposit side is a senic view area just after coming out of the mountians we could see the 7 lights already light up way off in the distance slowly moving together twords the pheonix area this time it stayed lit up for a couple of min at least becuse I crossed the bridge pulled in to the senic view area and my wife and I both got out and watched it then all at once all 7 lights were gone we stayed at the senice view for about 5 min so my dog could go to the bathroom after that we were back on the road we had no more sightings of the lights untill we were about 7 to 8 min out of wickenburg when I saw the last one off to the left but this time behind us a bit it vanished within a few seconds when we finaly saw the first houses of wickenburg my wife pointed out that the compus was now working agian. We didnt see any more lights that night or on our trip back from az to las vegas.

I will try and make and send some drawings in of what we saw
