Duration:1 1/2" hour
Very large object hoovers in sky for hour or so.. HUGH object.

Driving home from Yuma at 8 pm. Going east on Hwy eight. I watched a large light for about 40 mins. I have seen it before in 83 or 84 . It was too big to be a star and it was no plane ..It stayed very bright for a long time..I saw it wasent moving and was amazed at how bright it was. Then it looked like it went behind a cloud or smoke comsumed it .. The sky had no clouds in it..I by this time had pulled over to take pictures. Then a bunch of f-16s flew to it .. and almost surrounded it. It started to dim and moved a bit. then it kind glowed or illuminated from within for a few minutes. Then it looked like it went behind a cloud or smoke . At that time a cop pulled up to check out why I was parked at night infront of Lewis Prision. When I focused back on the object , I saw it just shoot away .It just vanished. It was gone completly . I got some pictures. i think I got a good one of it when it turned the lights off. Also my cell phone signal weekened while I watched it..

((NUFORC Note: Venus?? Just a guess. PD))
