Three bright lights in a triangle formation low on the horizon; disappearing and reappearing as well as traveling.

((male name deleted)) and 110th st. Scottsdale, AZ, higher than the rest of the valley 7:30-8:30pm I stepped outside to see three large bright lights in the sky in a triangle formation. I was driving but every time I looked they had rotated while staying in a triangle. If you had a full moon and put a point on the top and sides of a full moon, I would say this is how far they were from one another. By the time I pulled over there was only one light left; I told my boyfriend I wasn’t going anywhere until this light disappeared. It was not above me in the sky, but south of me low on the horizon.

Another bright light reappeared nearby the other. One left its location and slowly crossed the sky. It decreased in brightness and traveled east to west. If you split the sky in 18 sections, it would cross one of these in a little less than a minute. Planes flew by but were fast and not nearly as bright as even the traveling UFO. The light they emitted was pure white. When they traveled they usually got dimmer. I took off my glasses and the only light I could see in the sky, including stars, were these lights.

We starred at them freaking out with excitement for an hour. They would occasionally disappear and reappear in a nearby location. My boyfriend and I argued of what he thought was a plane at about 8 o’clock. It had two very dim white lights flashing very close in proximity and moved faster than the UFO’s before. I convinced him that it was a UFO because the lights were not consistent in spacing. They also would fly back and forth from east to west.

Also I do not know if it was just me because I was wearing glasses, but they individually appeared to be elongated vertically. The light looked like it came to a small point and expanded to the rest of the light. It was very subtle, but he said he could kind of see it too.

We ended up leaving before they were gone. At midnight I was back on the road and I could see one bright UFO. A couple minutes passed and it was gone; I didn’t see anything else this night.
