Location: Buckeye, AZ
Shape: Fireball
Duration: 1 hour +
Characteristics: There were aircraft in the vicinity or aircraft chasing the object
Sighted south of palo verde power plant in the buckeye hills area.

Orange glowing balls all flying about the same hieght above ground (15-20deg above horizon when viewed from 10 freeway) spaced out over a good few miles possibly 20+mi.

The orange balls would move gently swaying close to each other, fade out/fade in, come together in pairs and fly high.

The lights have been appearing every night since aug 3 2021- aug 5 around 22:00-2300.

Some nights there are 4 lights other nights I've seen 2 just lights flying around together.

The night of august 4 I Tried to drive to the lights but the further I drove closer the further they seemed to be (very far).

I noticed about 5 other cars pulled over on the road trying to record the lights as well.

I possibly thought they might be hot air. Balloons but they dont appear to have the large balloon above that would glow. The light is also very bright orange glow which seem very big considering how far away they were from my viewpoint.
