Orange lights south of Phoenix near Estrella Mountains

This is my 2nd report of seeing the same orange lights near the Estrella Mountain Range. 2 orange lights appeared near the southern tip of the mountain and then eventually faded away.

Upon driving further I noticed 1 light reappear close to my location. I estimate maybe 2-3 miles distance. Literally like it was turned on. These lights are brilliant orange and have an odd glow. Normally lights at a distances will twinkle as the light wave passes through the atmosphere; these were a perfect solid glow (no twinkle). After getting home I went outside to see if I could see them but my view was obscured by my apartment complex and trees. However I did notice several air craft now in the area.

Since my original sighting in December, I looked up online this phenomenon and apparently it is well documented.

Also I understand the Gila River Indian Tribe has stories regarding these lights going back some time.
