Location: Phoenix, AZ
Shape: Light
Duration:4 minutes
Around 11:30 I was outside in my backyard when I noticed a very bright red light in the sky west of my location in North Phoenix at a medium to high altitude. At first I thought it was a commercial jet, but it was not moving, just hanging in the sky-absolutely still and much to high and to bright to be a helicopter. I awoke my girlfriend who came out to see it, she could not make any sense of it. After a minute or so it began to pulse; going from bright red to a faint transparent red, then back to bright red. The glow was crisp and had a pureness to it; there was no haze or distortion at all. I went to get the phone to call a friend to take a look at it from his location when my girlfriend called me back, the light was gone, she said that it began to flicker rapidly and that it just disappeared with no trace of movement. This is the second but different U.F.O. I have seen in the last two months from my location.

RE: Red Light Over Phoenix

This is a follow-up from my report of last night. This morning at about 9:00 I went outside to look for the ‘red glowing object’ again. In the exact same spot as the night before there was a metallic silver object motionless in mid air at the exact same altitude as the object I saw the night before. It was not moving, it was perfectly still. I went inside to make a call to NUFORC and the object was gone when I came back. I would estimate the location of the object to be over Cave Creek Rd and the 101 Freeway at an altitude of a thousand to two thousand feet AGL. I took a photo but my lense was not strong enough to capture anything of clear value.
