The evening of July 4, 2012… North Phoenix
Okay, it is quite possible that I saw two unidentified flying objects tonight. It was just after 8:30 PM Arizona Mountain Time and in the eastern sky and also above the house, just a little south. Right now, I am checking around to see if others have seen them.
It is the fourth, and there were fireworks in the air, but these were higher up in the sky. The first object, the one in the east, stayed there for at least a minute before moving towards the north and disappearing. The object had what seemed like a red light when it hovered, but changed to a silver/ whitish glow as it moved to the north, before disappearing into the nearby clouds.
As I scanned the skies, hoping to get a repeat performance, I saw fireworks in the southern skies just above my house. I saw a blinking white light moving towards the south-east, I thought that it was a plane at first, because the skies above here are usually busy with aircraft of nearly every type. The unusual thing was that I saw no other lights on this craft, and the blinking light would start then stop and repeat sequence, then disappeared entirely.
I am checking resources to see if anyone had seen these lights. Unfortunately, I have no video. But I will make a video about my findings for The News Channel.
