6 Birght lights similiar to the "Phoenix lights" of 1997, danced across the desert sky.

6 bright golden lights. Seperate from one another. Perfectly angeled from one another. 2 of the lights were vertical to one another. And appeared to be seperated by at least a thousand feet. The other 4 lights if connected would have made a perfect square. Also about 1000 ft from one another. I could not tell distance at all. It was a clear night over the desert. The light could have been 5 miles away, or 30 miles. The lights then disappeared, sometimes 2 at a time, sometimes one. then would immediately appear maybe a mile to the west of where they had just been seconds before. Again perfectly spaced from one another. At one point one of the lights vanished and immediately like a strobe effect, they moved across the sky for maybe half a mile. then vanished. The lights would appear for about 5 seconds, then vanish for 10 minutes. Then show again. I have been an airline pilot for over a decade and never seen anything like this. There were no beacons, no navigation lights. These did not appear to be helicopters for they moved to smoothly through the sky with no vibration on the lights. And much to quickly.

Could it have been military? Possible. But an aircraft we are not privy to know about.
