Shape: Formation
Duration:40 min
4 Orbs over Mesa, Arizona seen by at least three witnesses.

While golfing, my friend looked up and saw a pattern of four lights in the shape of balls high in the sky. We watched them thinking they were weather balloons but they stayed in a triangle plus one pattern, kind of like the star formation of Cassiopeia.

The one farthest west turned a reddish color while we were leaving the golf course just before sundown. I checked the sky at the same time today to see if the same pattern was there, but the sky was clear with no signs of the orbs.

I do part time astronomy and it was not Venus (not up yet and to low in the west, nor Jupiter, (in the south) and no star, yet four, are that bight to be seen like that while the sun is still up.

((NUFORC Note: Venus, currently visible in the southwestern sky at sunset, is seen to set in the western sky, as the Earth rotates to the east. PD))
