Witnessed and video taped 3 objects in Phoenix Sky by Palo Verde

When I was driving out to my parents house in Phoenix from San Diego, a friend and myself were driving east-bound on the 8 Highway. We had just passed The Palo Verde Nuclear Power Plant. (We were taking the 8 to Gila Bend then up to the 10 freeway to cut off traffic)I noticed the 3 Oval shaped objects to the right of us for about 20 mins when I suggested to my friend that he video tape it. (we just happened to have the digital video camera with us) We were traveling at about 85 miles an hour and the objects remained on the passenger side the entire time. We finally stopped and decided to video the 3 objects from a stationary position.

At approximately 10:50 PM, we stopped along the side of the highway to videotape the objects when we noticed that they had broken their formation. The three objects which were traveling in a "V" formation were now only two. I got some really good detailed footage of the two objects since the digital camera I was using has 240X digital zoom. As I focused in on one object to get more detail, the other one took off. What happened next I failed to get on video but we also saw what appeared to be a rectangular shaped ship. (Or a portion of a ship which was siver or gray but it was only a partial view) For those star trek fans out there it appeared to have a holodeck look to it. Like when you can see a portion of the holodeck when a majority of it still held the particular hologram it was projecting. It was also masked behind what looked like clouds. This occured for a few seconds then it too dissapeared. A few seconds later the last ship also appeared to vanish. This ocurred about 10:52PM PST.

We then got back in the truck and continuerd to drive when we noticed that they had appeared back in the horizon. This was at 11:02PM PST, we pulled over again to video the objects in which all three were back but in different formation all together. Two of the objects were side by side and the third was now quite a distance from the others. We continued to capture the event until 11:04PM PST when we finally got back to the drive to Phoenix.

I managed to get some great footage of the sighting and am amazed at the detail of the objects captured. They changed not only dimension during our filming but also it seemed that they changed in composition. What appeared to be a fireball one second changed to a flashing orb like object to finally almost a gaseous compostion, in which you can see it is definately a rounded object but also that their is definate light and that they are traveling in a circular motion.
