|We were driving west on Buckey road crossing the Agua Fria River. Noticed a chevron shaped formation of 3 amber bright lights. The chevron was aligned east to west and pointing north. The object seemed to be about 1.5 miles south and about 1500 feet up. I stopped and got out to get a better view and could tell the lights were stationary in the sky. The lights were the color of yellowish street lights, but were about three times as bright. After a few minutes, the lights dimmed and blinked out from east to west one by one every 15 seconds until I could see no more. The never altered formation or even moved. If I had held my fist out to measure the width, I would guess it to be about eight fists wide.
((NUFORC Note: Please note other reports of yellow lights from AZ. Our best guess is that they may be flares over military areas, but that is ONLY a guess. PD))
