Yellow Lights seen over South Mountain

A man and his son next to us after the football game (at Arcadia High School located at 47th Street and south of Indian School Road) in the stands noticed seven lights hanging over the western part of South Mountain.

The son had said that he first only saw six and the seventh quickly thereafter zipped over into place with the others.

We all began to climb to the higher seats in the stands and watch the lights with our binoculars which we had for the football game. The lights were a yellow color when focusing the binoculars and seemed all to be about the same brightness at first.

After a minute or so the most eastern of these lights quickly disappeared then after another couple minutes another disappeared leaving only four left still shining, then a minute or so later there were only 2 lights remaining. These seemed to slightly brighter and then seemed to be slightly dimmer, then quicly faded away.

None of the seven lights that I saw ever seemed to move. We could see the radio/TV towers east of these lights that are on top of South Mountain and it appeared from the angle where these lights are and where we were located that these seven lights were to the western end of South Mountain, certainly west of Central Avenue.

From seeing them in the binoculars it was easy to see that compared to the radio/ TV towers on the South Mountain that these seven lights were not connected to the ground by towers or rope or strings that could be seen.
