Around 9:15pm I watched a red/yellow/orange, glowing thing drifting toward a friend and I. We watched it and initially thought it was a lantern balloon. It seemed to stop suddenly and float. There was no sound. Within seconds, it shot straight up as fast as a bullet and disappeared. Very weird. We were really excited, it was weird to feel excited but we kept looking to see if we would see it again to try to figure out what we saw.
Later, around 9:50 a group of friends arrived to celebrate NYE. As they got out of the car, we witnesses another red pulsating light near the superstition mountains. This time, the light appeared different. Much lower and brighter. It was the same colors and pulsating only it looked like it was dropping lava like sparks below it over many miles.
