|I've seen a lot of lights in the sky, but never anything like this.
I live in southwest Tucson, AZ. My house lies between the flight paths of Tucson International approach zone to the north and Davis-Monthan AFB flight zone to the Goldwater training range to the south-west. After 40 years of watching airplaines, you can easily tell the difference between an A-7 and an A-10 and a 747.
Last night, on or near 7PM, my wife and I noticed three glowing red lights to the south, 15 degrees above the horizon. These lights were at approximately a 10 degree angle from the horizon.
It first appeared as though an aircraft was approaching the house although there was no green light or strobe. It appeared stationary.
A fourth red light appeared to the left of the craft, equi-distant from the others.
As this light appeared, the light on the far right disappeared. This process repeated itself three times. All the lights then blinked out at the same time.
Weather conditions were clear with high scattered clouds. The moon was full two nights ago but had not risen yet.
My wife is a math teacher and I am a civil engineering designer.
