Three to Five comet-like objects seen descending in the sky east of Scottsdale, AZ, directional changes and reigniting flames.

Three to Five flaming, descending objects seen two consecutive nights with consistent, peculiar behavior. They appeared on 10/28/2011 and 10/29/2011 between 8:00 and 9:00 both nights, in the sky east of Scottsdale, Arizona. On 10/28/2011 they were further north than on 10/29/2011. Specific times of sight were 8:39pm on 10/28, and 8:15pm on 10/29.

Flight behavior shows descent, but with sudden, curving and complete shifts in directional movement. There is no organized formation. They initially appear with long streaks of flame, already in a steep descent.

The relation between the ‘flames’ and objects are like that of a comet- so judging from the flames, which seem to only come from one side of these objects, I could determine a curved silhouette. Full shapes, however, were not seen. The flame will go out on one at a time, leaving a small white light, then spontaneously reignite with an equal amount of fervor. Each flame and object seem uniform in size. The colors of the flame range from white, yellow, and orange. No other lights on the objects were seen, other than the single light when the flame temporarily extinguishes.

Both nights these objects descend into darkness, or have fallen from view, just before they drop below the horizon line.
