Location: Yuma, AZ
Shape: Light
Duration: 7 minutes
Characteristics: There were lights on the object
Lights turning on and off in a line

My boyfriend and I were parked on a back road watching the stars near Avenue D on the west side of Yuma. We started to see a couple of orange lights flash on in a row and then turn off one by one. We thought they were flares at first, but we didn't see any smoke coming from the lights. We were getting a little sad that we didn't have enough time to grab the camera and catch it, when all the sudden more lights turned on. Excited and a little scared, I grabbed my camera and started recording. These lines of lights showed up a few times but I always managed to miss it all due to the fact that when they appeared it was only for a couple seconds. This is the best video that captured exactly what we saw. There was no noise at all, no sounds of planes, and no smoke coming from the lights. After seeing what we saw in the video, the lights stopped lighting up and we did not see them anymore.

In the video there is one light that shows up at the beginning and then right around the 3 minute mark is when a whole bunch showed up.
