The Lights over Mesa Return - See Video Footage

I live in Fort McDowell (7 miles NE of Fountain Hills). Our house sits up on a hill so we have a partial view of East Mesa. Red Mountain is blocking our view of central and western portions of Mesa. The previous night at 20:05 (Oct 12) we noticed 9 amber lights hovering in that vacinity (see my post titled "Phoenix Lights are Back!").

This evening (Oct 13), 3 of the amber lights returned at 18:40. I just happened to walk out at the right time and looked out in the same direction they were seen the night before and to my surprise they were there. This time I had my camcorder fully charged. I recorded the lights for 90 seconds until they dimmed out one by one. The lights were in a trangular formation....they seemed further away than the previous night. They also appeared to be closer to the ground than the night before. In my video footage (which I'm making available to the UFO Reporting Center for visitors to view) you'll notice a plane that appears to fly under the formation of lights.

((NUFORC Note: The lights have been seen, and video-taped, on several occasions, beginning on October 4th, and we suspect that they may be flares in the vicinity of Gila Bend Firing Range. PD))
