Duration:aprox 45 sec.
|We observed a slightly coneshaped bright finished object above Luke AFB - in bright blue sky at noon, it traveled straight up slowly a
The object had the profile of a narrow angle cone - direction of the pointed end was perpendicular to the ground. The object seemed to be climbing at first than seemed to stall / perhaps even sliding backwards for a few seconds - then the object seemed to simply disolve in the air... The reason for looking up was the excess amount of air-traffic... This location is at Luke Air Force Base and it is usual to see a few fighter jets in the air... but on the 6th of April the traffic was excessive and the noise cause us to look up. The object at first glance appeared to be at about 10,000 ft a extrememly bright shinny finish. The fighter jets in the area all had a dark grey-black appearance. My first thought was that the object was a fighter climbing at a very steep angle but after ten seconds or so I remarked that -" whatever he doing doesn't look right" I thought it might be one of the fighters about to do a hammerhead stall - then the shape told me this is not a fighter. It disappeared - as if it had vaporized...The fighter jets were at about 5,000 ft - not as high as the object. I didn't think to report this until today because I have just read about a Mexico City sighting on the Mar. 5th...
