|Ten points of light flying formation in the sky over Tempe, AZ, 21:21 hrs 1 AUG 2015
We turned onto Country Club Way in Tempe, AZ, going south from Balboa, looked up, and saw an irregular formation of 10 red lights in the sky moving east. We got an iPhone photo that caught 4 or 5 (one dot is questionable) of them. The others had gone beyond our field of view before we could get a photo.
While their formation wasn't a regular shape, like our military pilots fly, they were moving in sync with each other. They were small red dots, but not blinking like an aircraft's lights. We followed as best we could, but within ten minutes, we could no longer see any.
Because Country Club Way is a residential street, we could see them much better than people driving on a main street, because of relatively less light pollution.
One of us is a retired Army Intelligence Officer, with service at NASA on the Apollo Program, and a lot of other aerospace industry experience, and a graduate (masters) engineer. The other witness isn't trained in engineering, ! but reports the identical situation.
