Appearance / Description of Object(s)
All of the objects glowed and pulsated between orange and red in a very regular fashion, not erratic pulsations. They were not quite as bright as a planes lights, but glowed from all around the object in a uniform light. They were circular in shape, like a glowing ball with a bit of a corona around them.
Size of Object(s)
It's hard to say how large they were, but using the finger example, my fingers would be approximately half an inch apart for a single object. I would guess their size around 20-30 feet, but again, that's just a guess.
Description of Area / Surroundings
Tempe is a suburb of Phoenix and is very urban. The airport is several miles to the west of where we were. There is a nuclear power plant outside of Phoenix to the west, but not really near us. Luke Air Force Base is also to the west, but some miles away.
Full Description & Details
My girlfriend and I were eating dinner together on the outside patio at a local restaurant in Tempe, AZ when around 10:10 PM, I noticed strange lights moving south from the northern horizon, at which point we both turned to watch them. We have lots of air traffic in the area, but these weren't following any of the normal flight paths and looked nothing like helicopter or airplane lights. Initially, there were seven glowing orbs that alternated or pulsed between orange and red. There was no discernible shape (no wings, tail, etc), just an overall glow that seemed to come from every part of the objects. They followed each other, single file, approximately half a mile apart and their speed seemed to match that of a passenger jet prior to landing. The string of seven were slowly ascending and eventually disappeared in the clouds.
Can sighting be explained as any conventional man-made or natural object?
They didn't resemble any man-made aircraft that I have seen. It was a cloudy night and they were below cloud level, so not satellites, and they were moving in a controlled path and quickly, so definitely not blimps or weather balloons.
I am a tattoo artist now, but have also worked as a high rise steel burner and crane operator, as well as a seismic surveyor. I have a high school diploma and have 1 and one-half years college education.
Views on UFOs, before and after sighting
Prior to the sightings, I was vaguely curious about UFO's, but didn't think about them much, had no well formed opinions, nor did I know much about their history. After the sightings, I have hunted for as much information as possible to figure out what I may have seen. Not knowing has frustrated me greatly. I've come to the conclusion that they were not any conventional aircraft, at least nothing I've ever seen or heard of before. My only conclusions are that they were either some form of military technology or alien in origin.
