|Bright ball of light seen hovering over Phoenix.
I was walking west down my street...looking towards Phx and noticing a jet leaving Sky Harbor Intl...not on normal course but flying a bit south and then west. Then I notice a bright yellow/white ball of light...at first I thought it was just a planet. But it appeared too bright. I carry a small pair of 10x25 binoculars with me at all times when I take walks...just for this kind of thing....I focus into it closer...it had no blinking lights...just a yellow/white ball with edges that made it look like Saturn on a tilt. It was moving slowly Northwesterly over Phoenix. The trees were getting in my way and I run further north to see it getting dimmer. At some points it would almost fade out then get brighter...and as it would dim it would change from a reddish glow to a blue/green glow then back up to full yellow/white. I watched for approx 20 mins til it slowly moved out of view. It was not a helicopter, blimp or plane!! I walked home as fast as I could to make this report
