I am glad, I stumbled upon this website. I am witnessing the same glowing fireballs as others are seeing in AZ.

Tonight is the 3rd time I've seen these lights in the sky. I commute home from Scottsdale each day. I exit from the I 10 and I continue on the 347, a stretch of highway that enters into Maricopa City. Between Riggs road and Maricopa city, I will see these glowing lights in the sky directly above Maricopa or maybe further south but its in plain view as they are directly over the 347. I am positive other drivers heading home can see them also.

The 1st time I witnessed, it looked like a Military flare, this caused for me to take my eyes from the road to the horizon, but then the orange color got brighter, hotter and pulsated. The light then disappears, a second later I saw that light to the east, it looked to be maybe over Queencreek?, the light was faint and then it started to glow brighter till it disappeard again.

2nd event was the day before Halloween, all the conditions are the same excepts the time was maybe 30 mins early around 730pm. I saw the orange fireball, but this time I can see it transfer a small amount of light into and another orange ball. This went across a large portion of the sky till 5 orange balls were attached to each other.

Maybe the length of a few miles, then all the lights together increased in brightness then went out.

Tonight at @845pm I saw the same 5 lights off to the east they flashed and them disappeared. Most people never see anything crazy in the sky. I am now seeing them on the reg. My guess is they are coming from Barry Goldwater base and the Gov has some pretty bad azz toys, but who really knows. Going to keep my phone handy and try too get some footage next time it's happens. I'm also glad other people are seeing them, makes me feel alot better about posting on the crazy UFO site. Wish me luck
