We saw a batch of what were presumably parachute flares (orange color, poss. due to the low angle and distance) to the E-SE from GRCO in Gilbert Friday evening, ca. 9 pm. I presume these were released over the military firing range near Florence Junction. The group of flares ("formation") slowly drifted to the south for some minutes. Some folks on the list who have observed previously with EVAC at our "olde" site off state rd. 60 east of Florence Junction to Superior may recall the flagpole and the gate to the north end of the military range next to the road. The AZ Natl. Guard sometimes conducts night firing exercises over there. Another example of the infamous "Phoenix Lights", IMHO...
