Four lights over Parker Strip CA/AZ

Upon leaving my store after hours my stepson (age 13) and I heard a dull, constant roar coming from the desert mountains behind us.

We saw four strong lights penetrating the low cloud cover above a mountain north of our position. The lights would pulse on and off at irregular intervals. The sound could best be described as distant rolling thunder but very constant.

We watched for many seconds and wondered what it could be.

Then the four lights began to drift away to the north (toward Lake Havasu City, AZ) together leading me to believe it was one very large craft as opposed to four separate ones. The sound also diminished in proportion to the lights.

When I asked a local resident (I was new to the area then) days later, what that could have been. He said the Marines were probably performing night manuevers in the desert with helicopters. I've been in the military and know the sound of helicopters...this was not that sound.

Our viewing distance was about 2 miles from the source and I could probably provide exact coordinates if you need them.
