Red Fire Orbs over Arizona

June 16, 2012 Buckeye, Arizona My 2 daughters, son, daughter-in-law and myself were outside when we saw a red object, it appeared to be round and not really a light, more like fire. It came from the Southwest, then made a turn to the North and proceeded until it disappeared.

I live in Buckeye and have seen lights over the south for several years, but these are more yellow in color and don't move across the sky, they just hang there and disappear and reappear for anywhere between a few minutes or sometimes almost an hour. Luke AFB says they are flares, but they don't look anything like the flares that I saw that Luke has released.

Later, around 10:00PM my kids came in and got me out of bed and said they were back. One would appear follow the same path, then disappear. A few minutes later another one would appear and do the same thing. We live where there are numerous flight a day come over our house including the F-16's from Luke, these lights were like none of these and didn't follow any flight pattern that I have seen before.

My daughter took video, with her digital camera, the shots aren't the best and her hands were not steady, but it definitely shows the light. This happened about four times after 10, then stopped and we went in.

I don't know what these were, but definitely not planes, jets, balloons, etc.... Nothing that I have ever seen. I guess that makes them Unidentified Flying Objects.
