Characteristics: Lights on object
It happened while waiting for the school bus to arrive. The sun had not come up yet, and it was still fairly dark. I noticed an amber light that looked similar to a military flair. Then in an instant there were two more lights (all of which were flickering or unsteady light). They were positioned above a mountain known as pilot knob, they couldn't have been more than a mile or so from me. The silhouette of the mountain was visible enough to realize they weren't falling like a flare.
As I'm watching these they began to go out one by one. As the last light goes out, a similar light appears above a friend's house. This shift was in an instant.
The lights began to re-appear above my friends house in the same type of pattern as seen with the Phoenix lights several years later (only a little tighter of a circular pattern). The lights stayed above the house until about when I was being picked up by the bus. Then, they began to go off one by one in no particular pattern. Again, as the last light goes off, a light appears over Ave D (about a half mile away) in an instant.
I remember the bus driving undrneath the lights, they glowed bright enough to see a glow on the ground. I don't remember seeing anything structurally between the lights nor do I remember any noises. I do remember it did move from when we went under it to when we turned around and drove back out to were we had originally past under it.
Witness indicates that the date of the sighting is approximate. PD
