|Multi colored object(s) and one object emitting white light only in the Far West Mesa area
A full moon on this particular night, it was in the SE to my location. I live on the very western edge of the city and further off to the west is where I observed the object(s). If I had to give a point of reference, I’d say it/they were over the Rio Puerco (so 7-10 miles west of my location?) area and heading west, but very slowly. About 9:45 I was in my side yard which faces west. I looked up to see an object with several flashing colors of light (red, blue, yellow, green). It wasn’t moving. I ran into the house to get a pair of binoculaurs. Through them I could see the colors better and a faint outline of the object (disk/circular). It wasn’t a helicopter, no noise, either. The sunlight was very very faint on the western horizon, and the full moon light on the opposite side of the sky almost ‘helped’ it stay undetected, if it were not for the flashing colors. I stayed there watching it for about twenty minutes as it just stayed in place.
Then my partnere came home and I walked inside to tell him what I had seen. He came outside with me and looked into the sky. Now there were two of those objects, a bit farther away now, but in close proximity to each other. It looked like one was going towards the other. Now, I looked NW and close to the horizon and saw a white light in the sky, not moving. It could have been a weather balloon, but they usually are seen because the sunlight is reflected off them. About 5 minutes later, there appeared another of these multi-colored lights N/NW of the white light (the other two are due S of these, still hovering, though they appeared to have moved further west). This was looked like it was farther/smaller but moving towards the white light. At one point it looked like it was going to meet up with the white light, but then we saw what could have been an aircraft with identifiable red blinking light trying to 'catch up' to it (jet fighter?) but then this multi-colored object began to retrace it’s path (no wide turning as would an airplan! e), stra ight line towards the white light object, straight line back. The (jet?) aircraft moved away from both. By this time I realized that there were no commercial airplanes coming in from the west, like we usually see. The white light object went over the horizon and disappeared. The 3rd multi colored object kept going N/NE until we couldn't see it anymore. The original two objects moved slowly west, but I couldn’t determine if they were moving up in altitude or just further away. After about 40 minutes, we saw several planes begin to emerge from the north (not their usual flight path, especially, not directly over our part of the city). Through the binoculaurs we could see that they were commercial aircraft.
