Location: Tempe, AZ
|At around 9:40 pm, went outside and saw two bright orange fireballs side by side, heading towards south mountain. within about 5 minutes, they both faded out and disappeared. went back outside 5 minutes later and there were two more identical fire balls heading in same direction and as the first two watched one disappear and then the other within 5-10 minutes. at one point the first set appeared to get real close together and then separated. the second set of lights seem to be real bright, then dim out and then got bright again before disappearing. as we live near the airport i have seen many planes which this was not. again just at 10:18 two more headed same direction, same color and circular in shape. seemed to be further away this time or closer to the mountain. oddly they keep appearing within 5-10 minutes apart and in pairs of two.
