|Four Green lights in a line moving from South to North
I’m a field supervisor for a security company in the area and I was walking away from doing a patrol hit. I was looking at my vehicle when I saw something out of the corner of my eye that caused me to look up at the sky. When I looked up I saw four green lights in a line about 600 feet above the ground. I was facing north and watched the lights for about 10 minutes until I could not see them any more. They traveled from about a 45 degree angle to a 90 degree angle in that 10 minute period that I watched them. While they traveled a tree was partially covering them but I could still see them through the leaves and branches. There was no sound coming from them at all. There was no other lights flashing like it would have been if it was a plane.
Being in the security business we are trained to be observant and to watch for things out of the ordinary. Living in the desert allows for great views of the night sky so I know I didn’t see Jupiter since I had my back to it.
