Location: Tempe, AZ
Shape: Triangle
Duration:10
Triangle shaped craft with three brightwhite lights and strobing colored lights dropped items behind treeline formed into one light and disappeared

I was siting at a stop light and noticed what I thought was a plane out of the corner of my eye, when I looked at it though it was moving so slow accros the sky that it would have to be some distance away if it was a plane but the lights were so large that it had to be close. I looked at it more carefully, it was three bright white lights in a triangle shape at a slight angle, lights strobed from red to green across the body of the craft then it changed direction and headed away from me, when the light went green I followed it, I only had to move 10 miles per hour to keep up with it. It disappeared behind the tree line and I thought I saw it drop two or three objects (bright lights) but I can't be sure, it emerged from the tree line, strobed again then disappeared back under the tree line, when it reemerged it was a single white light, it then once again passed under the tree line and I lost it after that. Not moments after I noticed an unusual amount of helecopters in the sky.
