My husband and I went to get gas (in 2 separate cars) at approximately 10:00 p.m. As I was nearing the gas station at approximately 10:06 pm, I noticed a strange pulsating twinkling light in the sky over the mountains in SW Phoenix. This is the 4th time I've seen a light like this. (I previously reported them last year.) I drove in to tell my husband who was ahead of me and after I got gas, I left the station and saw that the light was still in the sky. I raced home and went upstairs to view from a bedroom window. I wanted my mother who is visiting from Houston to see these lights because they are so unusual. My husband, mother and myself watched the light and saw it elongate and appear to be a craft with 3 lights. I called a friend who lives approximately 1/2 a mile from me and she and her husband went outside to view the lights as well. We watched them for about 20 more minutes. During this time another craft seemed to come from behind the first one that looked identical to the first one and it slowly separated from the other one and moved further across the horizon. Then they both seemed to fade out. I'm not sure that I can rule out a helicopter. There was no sudden erratic movement of either. But during all of this there were several other planes in the sky both around these objects and in completely other directions. I wanted to report it in hopes that if there were other reports it would helpful. My location is at McDowell Mountain Ranch Road and 105th Str.
