Duration:10 minutes
Multi light formation high in the sky

Friday Feb 19, 2016, approx 6:30 PM to 7: PM The evening of Feb. 19, 2016, my husband and I were traveling on hwy 347 to Maricopa, Az…….about 8 miles out of Maricopa, my husband pointed in the sky and told me to look in the southwesterly direction. In my view was two large clusters of whitish/yellowish light……they appeared to be in a formation of several rows of lights…….I watched this for approx. 5 minutes, then the cluster on the right disappeared, it did not fade away, it just went out…….within seconds a streak of light appeared higher and more to the south, this streak was a solid formation and appeared to have a pinkish color and stayed there but began to fade quickly……..the larger of the clusters was still in the sky and we continued to watch for another 5 minutes then it disappeared as the first cluster….did not fade, just went out. I would approximate the altitude of the clusters was 2–3 thousand feet, if brought down and laid on the ground the size was 5 or 6 miles across and 3–4 miles high, I saw ! nothing fall from the sky…….the clusters did not move……the light seemed to twinkle a bit but there was not a glowing affect.
