|15 or 16 yellowish white lights coming from the west formed a large X and held that position, ascended and disappeared .
Description of objects: bright white/yellow What they did: they came in first one, than another, then 3 ot 4, then 4 more, then I went to get my son ( 10 seconds) both of us went to where I was standing when I saw them. Now there was an X formation in the western sky. they held that position for about 20 seconds and began to move off to the north. They appeared to be rising and getting smaller as they went higher. Then they were gone, just disappeared. There was only one left and it slowly followed the direction of the others to the north and disappeared in the same manner.
Description of the background: I was in my backyard which faces north Phoenix, Arizona. One of my neighbors to the west has trees on the west side of their property, the other neighbor, west diagonally, has a palm tree. I have a brick fence.
The lights first came from the west emerging from behind my west neighbors trees on the west side of her property, they went past the palm tree in my other neighbors yard and when I came from the side of the house where I ran to get my son, the lights form the X that showed well past both sides of the palm tree. the lights were not moving. Then a couple began to move and the rest slowly followed. It looked slow but had to be really fast to go that far that quickly.
I work for the state of Arizona in the Job Service Program and my son works at a computer software company compiling data for lawyers.
