Three lights in western sky over northern AZ

While travelling Westbound on Hwy 89 into Prescott AZ and just passing the Gateway Mall (on top of a hill) I saw three very bright lights in the western sky approx. 3 thumbs (arm's length) above the horizon just over a large mountain (Thumb's Butte).

I am a former military policeman and though the items seemed like flares, I just watched News Channel 5 in Phoenix and they showed the videos of exactly what I saw.

I know this occurred exactly at 1900 hrs because I looked at my watch and then timed the disappearance of each light from the right to left (north to south) until they were gone.
