Location: Mesa, AZ
Shape: Cigar
Duration:5minutes
I WAS SITTING ON THE STEPS OF MY APARTMENT WHEN I OBSERVED A BLACK CIGAR SHAPED OBJECT TRAVLING SOUTH EAST. I FIRST OBSERVED THE OBJECT HOVERING OVER 8TH AVE & EXTENTION IN MESA,( I LIVE ON 8TH AVE), THEN IT STARTED SLOWLY MOVING EAST PARALLEL WITH 8TH AVE, THE OBJECT HAD NO LIGHTS OR SOUND. I DO'NT RECALL THE EXACT TIME OF THE EVENNING BUT IT WAS ALMOST DARK WITH NO CLOUDS IN THE SKY. THE OBJECT SPOOKED ME BECAUSE WHEN IT MOVED IT MOVED IN A FISH LIKE PATTERN, WITHIN 4MINS OF THE ENCOUNTER IT STARTED TO GO SLOWLY STRAIGHT UP INTO THE SKY UNTIL IT JUST DISSAPPERED. I BELEIVE IT WAS NOT AN AIR BALLON, HELLECOPTER, OR WEATHER BALLON, THIS OBJECT WAS VERY ODD.
