Location: Estrella (west of Phoenix), AZ
Shape: Light
Duration:5 minutes
Cluster of 13 Lights over Estrella, AZ, seen for 5 minutes by two witnesses.

At dusk, a group of lights appeared on the southern horizon. We were in the backyard on a mostly clear evening. We originally saw 13 lights, as time progressed, the lights began to disappear one by one, until they were gone (5 minutes). The lights initially appeared in two groups, one group of 11 and one group of 2.

We stood at the same vantage point the morning after our sighting and verified that there were no distant mountains in the view nor other possible reasons for lights to appear at that location. We have lived at this location for close to two years, and have never seen a similar grouping of lights.

We have 5 pictures from two different cameras that show a couple of different light combinations. Unfortunately, when I went to get a third camera with an even more powerful zoom capability, the lights had disappeared.
