Location: Phoenix, AZ
Shape: Flash
Duration:10 minutes
Cluster of at least 6 unidentifiable brillant flashing red and while hovering objects

Around 8:30 PM on Sunday evening 8/17/14 I was in my bedroom which faces the east side of South Phoenix area, near S. Mountain.

When I looked out my window I saw what appeared to be a group of at least six separate very bright red, with light flashing, flickering objects, that basically looked like they were hovering, but then would move in different directions sporadically, flash, and then the lights would disappear and would reappear,again.

My first thought that they were commercial jets taking off from Sky Harbor or landing at the airport. But, they (the unidentified objects) were stationary, hovering and the movement clearly wasn't any jet aircraft.

My only other thoughts were that they may have been a lot of helicopters,possibly hovering over an accident on the freeway area.

I alerted my adult daughter to go out into the backyard to see what she thought, and she thought initially maybe it was jet aircraft, but then came to the same conclusion that the ! objects were hovering, flashing off and on, and the movement couldn't be that of any commercial aircraft either.

After about 10 minutes of continued watching the objects, it got dim and then the objects just disappeared.
