Hi Bruce. Thanks for your commentary.

Watching the video clip no "flash" was apparent but the skywatch
group members who were there either Jeff or Rob will have to
comment on whether this happened that evening or not. Although
Jeff never mentioned it during the C2C interview and he did
mention that more details are seen in the original video not
discernable on the compressed video clip of the light movement
and possibly some kind of shape in the cloud deck outlined by
the lights on its apex.

The Phoenix ufo skywatchers group needs to followup by
contacting the Luke AFB and the airport regarding military
flights over the area that evening. It could be some mil
exercise of some sort but it sure is strange that no aircraft
was noticed before the lights appear in the cloud deck.  It
still looks like a pivoting craft possibly triangular moving
quickly on a level flight away above the mountains.
