Location: North Phoenix/Scottsdale, AZ
Shape: Disk
Duration: 1-2 minutes
Characteristics: There were lights on the object
5-6 disc shaped objects over N. phoenix, AZ August 22nd @ approx. 10pm.

My wife and I were on our back patio talking. She asked me if those were bubbles.

(My back was to the yard at the time) I turned to look into the yard and at first glance it did appear to be the reflection of our patio light on a bubble in the dark.

I stood up and walked into the yard where I noticed 5 round objects with light illuminating from the outer edge of the object. It seemed to circle around the objects which where flying in a "V" pattern. The objects had just passed over us heading SW when I entered the yard and appeared to be about 500-1000 ft. in the air.

There was no noise the entire time.

I looked back to the NE where the objects had first caught my wifes attention. I then saw one more by itself it moved oddly from N to straight south then back north about halfway where it started from and then shot across the sky in the direction the other objects were heading. The light from the edges was an amber/orange color.

I would never have believed it if I hadn't seen it. I have seen lights over Phoenix before, but never anything like this. Flares, who knows what I have seen in the past, but nothing that would lead to report anything. This however I can not explain...

If these object are military, then we have some really cool technology out there right now. If not military, My brain may short-circuit, as I have never really been a believer of the UFO phoenomenon...
