|Two small objects float over the runway at Phoenix Sky Harbor Airport.
My friend and I were waiting to board a plane at Phoenix Airport, noon, looking out at South Mountain, two small objects floated over the runway. At first they appeared to be like sheets of paper rolling in the wind or a foil birthday balloon. They were above the backdrop of South Mountain so it was hard to judge the size or distance. They seemed to float like small white baloons. I followed their path looking out the window while walking to the end of the terminal. As they floated away to tiny white spots in the sky, one drifted away, but one stayed. I could judge position by seeing the roof of the terminal looking almost straight up. It held that position for 10 min. I went to get my camera and came back (30 sec.) to find it was gone. (I thought ok maybe just balloons.) I went to the next set of windows to keep searching looked up and there were 2 objects again, this time closer and lower in the horizon. They held that position for another 5 min with out moving. (I thought cool a pair of ufos). I watched for a while and looked away for maybe 30 seconds. I looked again and one was gone! The other just floated off in the distance after another 5 minutes.. I snapped a couple of pictures but there is probably not a lot to see. Two aircraft at high altitude at different times crossed the field of view close to the objects. Nothing spectacular but worth noting.
