Acending lights seen over east valley

At about 1:15 am I walked out of my front door to smoke a cigarette. I live just off of the loop 202 and scotsdale road about a half mile north of the freeway. My front door faces southeast and I am directly in the planes landing path to sky harbor in Phoenix. I can sit on my front patio and watch planes decend all day. In my two years I have never seen a plane traveling east at the altitude and direction of the object I saw tonight. The object was traveling east and hand a series of lights on the rear that would flash in an ascending order from left to right. It caught my eye because, like I said, I have never witnessed a plane traveling that direction in that location before. I quickly called my 17 year old cousin outside to look. He was just as fascinated as me. The lights were clearly visible and bright. I quickly hopped in my car with him and started driving east. We followed the object for about 10 minutes and then turned around. I have never experienced something like this in my life.
