|Successive bright amber lights lighting up in a row
As I was driving home from dropping my daughter at Volleyball practice in Gilbert, AZ, while driving east on Germann Rd near Higley Rd, I saw lights, about 2 miles up, directly over Phoenix Mesa Gateway Airport (KIWA.) The lights successively lit up from right to left with a bright amber points of light. I believe there were about 6 of them. After each light lit up and the one next to it lit up, it would go dim and disappear.
After arriving home around 7:15pm, I immediately called the Airport's "Aviation Services, fixed base operations," and the lady that answered the phone said that they just heard the tower address the lights and nobody knows what they were or how they ended up directly above runway 12R-30L. She said it was very strange, but had no explanation.
I am an aviation enthusiast and am very familiar with anomalies in the skies.
