No of observers: 0

Location: Canon City, CO, USA

Shape: Formation
Characteristics: Lights on object

while traveling east on Hwy 50 I spotted a cluster (6 or 7?) of red lights in the northeast sky app. 9:00 angle. They appeared to be connected as moving in unison. (Put me in mind of Phoenix lights, for some reason) We were stopped at a stoplight at the time. I asked my companion if she saw the Lights, but she did not, I watched for several seconds till they were out of line of vision. They appeared to be traveling down toward horizon.

A friend and I were traveling East on Royal Gorge Hwy in Canon City, when I spotted a cluster (loose) of several bright red lights in the (slightly) northeast sky. My friend could not see the lights when I tried to point them out. I watched for several seconds till they were out of my line of vision. There were trees, buildings, etc in the way. Since I was in an enclosed car with other traffic sounds, I could not tell if there was any sound. Later that evening while talking with another friend who lives on the 13th floor of apt building. She interrupted me to ask if I had seen the lights. Evidently she had seen the same thing. She said they appeared to land and blink out. They did not seem too far away, though I have a depth perception problem and can not really judge. I called the radio station, and no one had reported any lights. She later called and they said two other people had reported lights.
