Three circular lights clearly not typical aircraft floating and moving away smoothly.

While driving eastbound on Main Street between Val vista and greenfield roads my stepfather and i witnessed 3 bright lights separated randomly in the sky.

The first two lights were in the north with one a bit further east and it seemed to be a bit closer to us. The light closer and to the east (will be further reffered to as light 1) seemed to be shone in our direction because of the way the rays came off the light and how bright it was. Light two did not seem either as bright or to be shone in our direction.

Light one seemed to be floating and not really moving in any direction until it slowly turned the light toward the south and began to move across the sky. The light didn't seem to move in any massive speed, but it did not go slowly either. (i am a terrible judge of speed and distance) Light #3 was in the south east and was slowly moving south. Lights 2 and 3 were not nearly as bright as one and thus i seemed to really only watch 1. It was also the closer light so it caught my attention more. My stepfather was mostly watching the one from the passenger side which was in the south on his side of the car.

I know what an airplane looks like as i live under the flight path for Sky Harbor and these lights did not blink and had no red to them at all. I also concluded it could not be a police chopper because for the light closest to us to be that bright the chopper would have to literally be aiming at us.
