While going to feed animals, I saw flashing blue lights rise out of the desert floor and stationary amber lights appeared

January 4th at 7:20PM MST. Bouse, Arizona. I went out to feed the animals. When looking towards the NE in the "Butler Valley" area, I noticed a bluish light just above the ground, then another appeared. The first light rose very fast at about a 50 degree angle going South off the Desert floor...it grew very faint then my attention gravitated to the second, then third light coming from the same area. After the second and third bluish light, then the usual amber lights came on and went out above the same area where the blue lights appeared. The amber lights always appear most of the time in the N.E. above the "Butler Valley" area and directly East at about 30 degrees above the horizon. When the amber lights came on, they did so from Right to Left and you could see a thin a horizontal gold thread connecting the lights. The thread would disappear and the lights would go out. The duration of the amber lights was about 5 seconds per grouping. I watched the blue lights rise from the desert floor and move Southward, all were at different altitudes going South. I noticed all the blue lights were flashing like aircraft lights but the blue lights were two colors. A bright medium blue and a light flashing blue---I have never seen blue lights appear from out of no where off the desert floor as it seemed that they just came out of the ground. But never before had I seen the amber lights appear in conjunction with moving and flashing blue lights. The whole episode lasted less than 5 minutes. The last blue flashing light looked to be no more then a couple of hundred yards off the desert floor going South at a fast rate of speed and it made a very loud roaring sound like a roaring train. This last blue light was the only one to make any sound that I could hear. My son and I both saw and heard this together.
