MYSTERIOUS LIGHT over southern portion of MINGUS MT

Can anyone explain the red & green light that appears to be above the southern portion of Mingus MT, probably between Cottonwood and Camp Verde AZ? I have seen this on many numerous occasions. It is probably nightly. It seems to stay in one spot but moves so slowly you can not detect movement. It is not from a tower due to the movement. It appears to be too bright to be a star, so low to the horizon and also there are no stars in the vicinity minutes before it appears. It is always around the same time but a few months ago it was a couple of hours later. It cant be car lights because it is actually above the rim of the mountain. I have never seen it come in. One minute its not there and the next it is there. It seems to move very very slowly and then the mountain is in the way of my view.
