I was driving from Fountain Hills to my apartment using highway 87. As i was about a mile from Gilbert Road, i looked to the south towards Mesa, and the best way I can describe what I saw was that there were three orange orb-lights in the sky spaced pretty close to each other really far away (maybe 20 miles away, 5000 ft high) and as they started to dim out from left to right pretty quickly,

3 more lights appeared a little bit further away in a straight line.

As those started to dim out from left to right 3 more lights appeared. And this happened about three to four times before they just disappeared completely.

The pattern these lights turned on and off reminded me of a caterpillar effect.
