The good citizens of Phoenix spotted strange red lights over the city on Monday evening. Arizona Republic reporter Anne Ryman, who lives in Deer Valley, reported seeing four lights in a square shape that eventually became a triangular shape. The lights were moving to the east and they disappeared one by one. She said the lights were visible for about 13 minutes at about 8 p.m..

A north Phoenix resident, who wished to remain anonymous, said he saw four or five red lights lined up in a straight line and spaced apart evenly. The lights slowly moved east and became dimmer as the witness watched. He said the last light remained in the sky the longest. Then three jets came from the west and traveled in the direction of the red lights.

Luke Air Force Base stated that they did not have any aircraft in the sky Monday night and that the lights were not part of any Air Force activities. Deer Valley airport officials said that the lights were not from any aircraft at that airport.

The North American Aerospace Defense Command is responsible for monitoring the skies for security threats. FAA spokesman, Ian Gregor indicates that they do not know where the lights came from and will not be investigating. He gave a five word quote: "There's nothing to look into." Gregor did acknowledged that air traffic controllers at Sky Harbor Airport also witnessed the lights, but they do not know the cause.

According to NBC evening news Tuesday, there was a similar sighting in St. Augustine, Florida on Saturday night.

Phoenix residents may remember that on March 13, 1997, thousands of residents reported a mile wide, v shaped formation of lights over the Valley. The phenomenon lasted three hours and still remains a mystery.

    I saw this grouping of red lights over Huntington Beach, CA last night 1/19/12 - arranged somewhat like Orion. I ran in to phone my daughter and by the time she got outside, only 3 were left and they also burned out, but at least she saw them too!!! what are they?

    My mom and sister saw 5 lights like this on our way back home from Target last night! They seemed to wander around the sky very slowly, and had all disappeared by the time we made it home. Very strange sight! We're in Woodstock, GA.

It was flying real low and it wasgoing slow. very quiet.. the lights were white and they didnt change form. i watched it till i couldnt see it anymore and it stayed a triangle.. very creepy. idk what it was but it was definitely a ufo. i dont think no military planes are that quiet and flying through a lil town here in arkansas... hmm?? very strange:)

    Last night my wife and I were followed for about 20 miles by a light in the sky. At first my wife told me it was a plane or helicopter. but I told her that it was not, that it looked exactly like the light that followed me 11 years ago. It didn't move like an airplane. If I stopped, the light stopped, and if I drove faster, it also flew faster. the first time I saw it it freaked me out, and the second, well, I got curious to know what it was. Now I'm really wondering what that was. UFO? Guardian angel? we were coming back from Los Angeles, and I saw it appear going south on the 15 fwy around 3:00 am, past the city of Corona.

    At about 10:30 and 11:00pm, in slimbridge, bristol,my family and friends witnessed 1 floating light on its own, then another 5 came alone all in formation changing shape and then another 4 came floating along. They all floated off seeming to get dimmer or higher. But none of them made a sound.

    Between 9 and 10 pm sometime in the south a friend and I saw a strange blue/white light, that was sometimes constant and sometimes got brighter and then dimmer. We have no idea what it was, but there was only one, not multiple. It was in the sky on and off for about five minutes, anyone else see this???

    04-jul-09- My family and I witnessed 3 red lights in the sky over El Cajon, CA on or between about 845-930 they seemed to flicker some what at times and remain solid at others they were in the shape of a triangle and were not planes, helocopters, or flares. they seemed to be moving very slowly and although they were not joined they moved as one. and began disapearing one by one about the time the fire works began. Very strange how bright they were for seeming so distant. Red lights on plane don't shine that bright, I know this because there were several planes and a helocoper out last night at the same time so it was easy to judge distances and intensity of the lights as well as comparing the differences. I don't know what they were but I'm still sceptical, I just found it interesting that so many people post sightings of the same nature through the years... I dunno?
