Duration: 4 minutes
White lights in a row that came one one at a time and went out all together

Very bright, (beyond bright, luminous) perfectly round white lights came on one at a time in a kind of row that formed a wide arc. They were on for about thirty seconds to a minute and then they went out altogether, like someone turned off a light switch, snap, they were gone. After a couple of minutes the whole thing started again ending the same way after about thirty seconds to a minute. They were over the horizen to the north, higher than a helicopter but lower than a jet. When I told my mother about seeing them she said they sounded very simliar to the Phoniex lights of 1997. Looking at those on the internet I can state that is exactly what I saw except these were much brighter. Afterward the lights went out the second time nothing else happened for about ten minutes and then I noticed helicopters from the Marine base(29 Palms) flying around the same area.
