Translation of original report submitted in Spanish:

Hello: We are two people from Hermosillo, Sonora, [Mexico] who were traveling from Tucson to Puerto Penasco on the American side [of the border], and after we passed a town called "sells" we began to see a pair of bright, amber lights, and around them 4 blinking white lights that seemed like aircraft. When we stopped, we heard the sounds of jets and we supposed that the white lights were in fact the jets, [and] the amber lights disappeared after a couple of minutes. The airplanes were searching all over the sky but nothing appeared; suddenly in the sky, right in the middle of the jets, 3 immense amber lights reappeared. And the "game" began between these lights and the planes, and after 4 minutes, they disappeared.

Then, when we were about 20 miles from Why, AZ, the group of lights appeared again over the place called Ajo, above a butte, two of them, and they stayed there for about 5 minutes. My companion stopped the car and I began shooting with a Cybershot camera, and after a few moments, more lights began to come out of the light on the right side. In the video, you really can't see it well, but these lights left a sort of gray trail against the black night sky when they moved around. When my companion turned off the headlights, at that moment the three lights began to disappear, and the group of aircraft, probably military, began arriving.

Then when we headed from Why to Lukeville, one could see on the horizon in the direction of Ajo that the lights were hidden behind a butte. But when we passed Sonoita, Sonora, Mexico, headed for Puerto Penasco, the lights still could be seen for another 5 minutes.

If anyone knows or has an explanation for this, I would like to know what it was, because to me it seemed extremely strange and upsetting.
