Multiple white lights above the mountain ridge and traversing the mountain

On 9/27/15 my wife and I were trying to watch the blood moon forming in the east. Since it was very cloudy throughout most of the valley, I became a little bored and started to look around the sky. Upon looking at the mountain behind our house I noticed a couple white dots hovering over the mountain. I thought they were airplanes at first because that is a normal route that is used when they are coming in to land at McCarran Airport. After a few minutes went by they still had not moved any closer and stayed in the same area. I then noticed more lights appearing next to them, there were approximately 6-8 more lights that appeared right next to each other. I was able to see the lights moving around from left to right and a few of them would disappear then reappear for the next few minutes. After another minute went by we had seen more lights appear closer to us, but still over the mountain. As this was happening we noticed what appeared to be lights comi! ng down the side of the mountain. There were probably at least 30 objects moving down alongside the mountain. As this was happening my wife started to freak out and pulled me inside of the house. She started to have a panic attack so I had to tend to her for the rest of the night. Where we viewed the objects moving down the mountain I did not know that there was trail that high up. I had found this out the next day using google earth and verified that these lights were moving down that same trail. We live approximately 300 ft. away from the mountain and will normally hear vehicles or off-road vehicles driving on the road below the trail. There was no sound at all and the lights appeared to be hovering over the ground. I also thought that they may have been people walking/running on the trail, but that didn’t explain the lights hover above the mountain. All of the lights seen were large and very bright; they were definitely bigger than a flashlight and probably bigger! than the size of a headlight. They were definitely not flares or any other type of aircraft,

I was in the military and I know how planes and flares move. The mountain I am referencing is called “Desert Hills” right in the corner of Blue Diamond Rd. and Fort Apache Rd.
