Three bright, large, orange orbs over Scottsdale

I was walking down my driveway looking to the south east (I was north of the lights), and I witnessed three orange lights in the sky.

They were larger and brighter than aircraft lights. They were quite a distance away, yet they were as large as the light on a helicopter that flew over my head at around the same time (the helicopter had nothing to do with the sighting, its just a size comparison). The lights were a minimum of 10 miles away, so they were large and bright enough to clearly see. They were mostly stationary and they formed a non-equilateral triangle.

The right-most light then started to head to the right (west) and it went out after about 10 seconds. The middle light did the same thing about 30 seconds later. The third light remained stationary in the sky for about 2 minutes, and then it faded out, but as it did, another bright orange light appeared to the left of it. The fourth and final light remained stationary in the sky for another f! ew minutes, and then it faded out.

I have an iPhone 5 video of the event that I'd like to upload, but it may take me a few days.
