Duration:15 sec
A bright white aura was around the bottom half of the sphere

Marble shaped object appeared out of the South,the object was large being 33%-25% of a full moon.The color was a brillant emerald green,and was desending at a steep slope towards the West-Northwest.The object, at roof level from my house,suddenly changed from the green orb to a bright flash of white light.The light seemed not to radiate out in all directions,but to be focused in a Westerly direction.Out of the white light a flat, black,dime shaped something appeared.Both the light and other object vanished in the blink of an eye. Also,by second hand info another party apparently saw what I did.They live about 20 miles South of Globe,and were sitting on their porch that night.I don't know these poeple,but a good friend does;however, they're building a house and live in a camp trailor without a phone.If I can connect with them,I'll try to get them to contact you.

((NUFORC Note: NUFORC received two reports about this incident. Apparently, it was seen from Globe, AZ, 80 miles to the east of Phoenix, at the same time it was witnessed from Lake Pleasant, some 50 miles north of Phoenix. The Sandia sky cameras in New Mexico did not record the event, unfortunately. There are certain characteristics of the object observed that do not conform with a typical meteoritic event, we believe PD))
