I was living in san carlos, sonora mexico and after the stroke of midnight i went to the landing (palapa) on the top of the house when i saw the three lights. after the ringing in of the new year at 12:14am i observed lights appear in the sky. slowly at first and one at a time until three lights were in line with each other. it slowly moved towards a westerly direction as i observed them from my vantage point to the north of the lights. they moved slowly and came to a stop. after a few seconds 15 to 20 seconds of them hovering in the sky, the furthest of the crafts went instantly to the south over the sea of cortez and disappeared completely leaving a small light trail that remained for about 3 seconds. then the other ones disappeared as well with out moving
after about five minutes or so i heard the neighbors say out loud, “there they are again!! look, there they are again!” i looked to where they were pointing . . . which was towards the eastern hills of guaymas. in that direction the three lights reappeared and they hovered towards me again, moving east to west . . . the lights never got brighter and after a few more seconds they disappeared altogether.
