On Tuesday, November 12, 2013, at around 9:15 p.m., my two brothers, my niece, my brother-in-law and I witnessed lights over the mountains to the Northeast from our porch, in the direction of Santa Fe Baldy and the Ski Basin. There were four lights, kind of in a diamond formation, with a trail of additional lights clustered beneath the first lights. They kind of went from a reddish color to orange to yellow and finally, as they faded off across the sky in the distance, they got lighter in color, almost a whitish-yellow. My brother also noticed a slow-moving airplane flying in the sky at the time, heading in the opposite direction of the lights. We could not tell if the plane had seen the lights and was following them or not.

I tried to take a picture of them with my cell phone and also to videotape them, but didn't get anything useful on the camera. All I got was black sky and the lights from the neighbor's house across the street. Maybe, if I had used my regular digital camera instead, I would have gotten better results. Oh, well! Because of the trees and houses partially blocking our view of the lights, one of my brothers and my niece took off in my niece's car, trying to follow the lights and to get a better look with binoculars. They went all over the place, looking for a better view, but, by that time, the lights had already flown off into the distance.
