Several hovering globes of yellow/orange light in the sky outside of Yuma, AZ

My family and I were driving East on the 8 fwy and noticed several globes of yellow/orange light in the sky apx. 20 miles outside of Yuma, AZ at apx. 8:15pm. These globes were in a formation of 2 vertical lines - there seems to be 8 globes all together. They were directly above a mountain. Then, they seemed to just burn out. Apx. 15 mins. later we saw them again - this time there were 5 globes just hovering in the sky in a V type formation (all flat land - no mountains), no noticable movement. These 5 globes of light disappeared - 3 burned out, then the remaining ones individually burned out (I say burned out, beacuse they seemed to dim slightly and then turn off). Another 20 mins. or so passed by and there were 3 globes that reappeared in the sky, still just hovering. They continued to appear, disappear and then reappear in different places in the sky. This continued until apx. 10:45pm. My husband and I finally pulled off at a rest stop to try and capture them on video and take a few pictures.
