Location: Socorro, NM
Shape: Light
Duration:3 hours
Around 8:30 pm last night noticed multiple bright white lights SE of Socorro in the Escondida are in the East mountains. Lights started appearing; stationary in one area, piled up, vertical then horizontal.

At one point, when moved towards NE, above the mounts, they all turned off then there were sparkles in a square then turned off. Then, the lights started moving NE and then turned off.

At times there were between 3 7 lights at a time. They appeared quickly and turned off suddenly. They did not linger and were visible around 20 seconds at a time. I tried taking a picture but nothing appeared on the camera. The moon appeared clearly but not the objects and they should have been visible.
