Flashing moving lights over Phoenix AZ

I was looking through binoculars at Jupiter when flashing red and blue lights went across my field of vision. I followed it to the north and it stopped, changed to pink and moved in the opposite direction. Then I saw another flashing red, white and blue light .

I lay down on my chaise lounge and looked up with my binoculars and saw what appeared to be a fuzzy white type of sphere much larger than the lights or stars move from east to west and then it suddenly started flashing the red , blue and white lights right in front of my eyes. I called out my fiancee’ who also watched these lights move from one area of the sky to another, mostly in the south now. My son came home and watched with us and we all saw two of the strange lights follow an airplane heading southwest—same direction. At first I thought maybe it was President Obama’s plane with escorts or something, but he spent the night here, so it wasn’t that.

The lights moved erratically faster, slower, up or down not in a straight line like an airplane. I saw many airplanes and could distinguish the difference. When the flashing occurred you could not see a shape, like I did when it was not flashing.

There were many of these throughout the hour in different locations, and they just disappeared after 10 pm.

My son saw groups of these lights in the early morning hours of August 16 around 2 am.
