String of lights in Phoenix area

One evening in early December, 2010, my husband and I were entertaining some guests on our back patio in north Peoria, Arizona. As I was gazing at the sky, I noticed a string of about 3-4 bright amber lights in what looked like a line formation moving toward us from the west in a northeasterly direction.

I thought the lights looked strange, so I focused on them and noticed several more of these lights coming up behind the others from over a mountain to the west. I then pointed them out to the others and we all became very excited and inquisitive wondering what they could be.

For the next 10-15 minutes or so, it seemed like an endless stream of lights coming one behind the other. As they came closer to the east, we listened to hear if maybe they were Air Force jets, but we could hear absolutely nothing. I’m estimating that there were upwards to 19 or so lights that we counted over a period of about 10-15 minutes.

Everyone agreed that these lights looked odd and didn’t appear to be aircraft we had ever seen before, especially since they were amber colored and had no white or red lights on them that we could see.

As we continued to watch, the lights seemed to change direction and began to head southwest until we could no longer see them.

I turned on the TV hoping to hear something about these strange lights, but I never did.

Were these aircraft from Luke Air Force base or were they something else entirely. Have you received other reports about these lights or know what they were?

Thank you.
