Parachutists with flares maybe? Idk
This is the correct answer. It’s a night skydiving demo jump with pyrotechnics. The third flashing light is possibly the jump plane or another airplane or helicopter in the distance.
Weird way to say aliens, but ok
Normal way to say aliens but ok
It was surprisingly big and bright. I dunno…
Flares are designed to be seen at great distances and in pitch black, that's very useful for deploying and avoiding hitting your jump mates.
JFK Jr's shuttle craft on it's way to Dallas?
SOLVED: 100% alien piloted, swamp gas fueled, fighter pilot jets deploying paratroopers with flares.
Right. Just a typical Friday night in the valley. 😆
They were paragliders. We live in chandler and they were right above us.
How did it not catch on fire?
No one used Ember on them
Something Something about jet fuel and steel
Dont let the news stations get ahold of this footage, they will talk about it like the phoenix lights for the next 20 years.
I was taking off from Sky Harbor the night of the Phoenix Lights they were nothing more than a series of planes headed in the same direction that were reflecting the Sun as it set over the horizon
I watched them for a while and thought it was kind of cool, little did I know it would be such a big deal the next day in the San Jose paper
Kurt Russell has a different version from that night

Skip to 1:25 mark.
Not even gonna click, just gonna assume: cocaine.
I saw it.. it was as over south mountain around Ahwatukee… I do believe that’s a no jumping zone?
I’ve seen paragliders there a lot recently so idk
I believe Goku over paraglide
Its going on now?
Happened at 6:54pm
I saw the same thing at the same time. Thought it was strange and figured it was probably aliens.
Strange yet very positive vibes tonight, could be anything 👀
This is trippy, I want to say aliens but I agree with the other poster, probably flares of some kind
I think after inspecting Phoenix the aliens are just as confused as the rest of everyone else. I'd have probably fucked off too.
I saw something that looked exactly like this 10 years ago, it was on the 4th of July and I went home to see what everybody was going to do. No one was home so I was like “shit now what am I gonna do?” I look over towards Thompson peak/fountain hills area and I see a plane flying by, the. All of a sudden I see 5 of these lights drop. The first thing I think is “wow the plane is dropping flares for 4th or July, that’s cool I guess” then All of a sudden they start to spiral and go up then dip back down. Now I start to think “cool, guys with parachutes jumped out of the plane with flares, I guess that’s cool?” But when they started to spiral into one another I’m like okay how the fuck did that do that? And also I don’t think anyone suppose to be jumping out of planes above fountain hills. The lights or “flares” whatever the hell it was were going in and out, spiraling in the sky, then they went out in order. Tried to record it with my crappy smartphone back then. But phone cameras back then weren’t like the ones we have now. Cool that you got what I pretty much saw that night.
Alien or untold government equipment cuz it’s seems to be in control of itself n no is going to be flying with fire or flairs that’s ridiculous those flames or flairs are far to big to be flying
...from a weather balloon was trapped in a thermal pocket and reflected the light from Venus.
I saw it as well in the east southeast from Chandler. I tried to take a video as well, but it wasn’t nearly as good as this.
Is there a link to an event with pragliders with flares by chance?
Edit: I’m thinking [Taurid meteors ](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Taurids)
That’s what I thought at first, but it seemed way too bright / large? I have no idea.
Yeah, and they are moving way too slow. Meteors are traveling at 30,000-60,000 mph.
Where was this? My aunt let off two candle lanterns for a family member who passed recently in chandler somewhat along the 101 around 6:30
Yeah this looks like Chinese lanterns
I dunno, I’ve never seen a Chinese lantern maneuver as such. No Chinese lantern goes left right, down, and up at the same time.
Venus and her sister mocking UFOs and paragliders? Also, drones can easily trick people into thinking they are UFOs...technically they are Unidentified Flying Objects :)
Looks like a pair of lights. Also a plane flying by.
F-35s most likely but might be F-16s. Looked like a late exit.
What’s a late exit mean?!
Death by missile. It’s all simulated for training.
2 fireworks on balloons with their fuses attached together with a cigarette timer.
Aliens, that is all
My wife woke up at 12:14am and heard a series of three explosions- this seems to be another common Phoenix ‘thing’ that everyone has a different explanation for: *checks notes* Exploding batteries from exploding meth labs which used explosives to clear rocks while underground gas pockets exploded near military tests at Luke AFB which set off car alarms and shook windows in the middle of the night. 😀 Did I miss any?
JITT YOU TRIPPIN
Nice, saw this and thought it was drones with sparklers but someone said parachuters or paragliders which matches the movements on their way down even after the sparklers were done you could see a light.
Im not 100% certain what they are. But their movement was identical to highly experienced paragliders.
Two drones with sparklers
Or maybe get Fife Symington on it...
I seen something almost identical several years ago. I was swearing up and down that it was a UFO. Good to know that I'm an idiot. Thanks!
I saw this exact thing in Tucson on Friday night.
Did anyone else see the same lights tonight?
Sorry about that I just turned on my

Weather balloons but on fire
Some spiritual anomaly.
Wait, I got it. The spirits of the Phoenix.
Swamp gas for sure
Well if you're in Phoenix, the answer is always aliens. Every time. Even if you enter the sky as a human, the second you start doing something weird, you become an alien.
Weather balloons for sure
