|Five very bright, solid yellowish, to golden lights that changed shape and format.
While traveling west bound on East Apache Trail in Mesa heading towards Ellsworth Rd I noticed 5 very bright golden yellowish lights. The shape appeared to be curved like on the side of a circle. I continued east than merged onto the 202 freeway just west of Ellsworth lights were not in view obscured by a freeway wall. When I merged onto the 60 highway west the lights became visible again. At this point I could tell the lights were not connected to one object because the shape changed into a wide “V”. At this time I heard and saw two helicopters approaching. The lights were directly in front of me, one helicopter was headed from the south and stayed south of the lights. Another helicopter stayed north of the lights, so the lights were almost in the middle of two helicopters. I arrived at my destination on Power rd just north of the 60 and exited my car at this point only three bright lights remained and were not in any formation. I entered the store and upon exiting no lights were visible. I called my local news station who informed no other reports had been made at that time. Thanks
