i was waiting to pick up a vehicle from a local car dealership-the dealership had long string of balloons floating up in sky for promotional uses as did dealership next to them-i was looking at both strings of balloons when i saw a group of colored balloons float away approx same location where strings of balloons were tied down.the strings of balloons were also colored-they were not the silvery shiny mylar type balloons-i was thiking to myself how high up the balloons were-usually they dont have such long strings of baloons-i estimate they were approx 400 ft in the air-approx 1 balloon every 10 feet or so on the string-i estimate there were aprrox 40-50 ballons on each string.as i watched the group of balloons that floated away go up into sky i saw i bright white light just south of the 1st string of balloons but still above string of balloons-i was looking due west and up.at first i thought it was one of those mylar ballons reflecting sunlight-i knew it wasnt that cause it didnt move -it was stationary or hovering-then i thought it maybe a helicopter-if it was ,i thought ,it sure is up high-then it moved like nothing i have seen before-it was a bright white sphere-it moved from stationary to a trajectory from sw sky towards me and down on a 45 degree angle,instantly went horizontal from s to n across western horizen then went on another 45 degree angle up and to the north and hovered again-this action went behind both strings of balloons-it hovered there north of of second string of balloons-as the sphere moved it changed colors from bright white to yellow to orange then to gold-by this time i had my binoculars out-i focused in on glowing gold sphere for aprox 1 minute-the light coming from sphere was not any type of reflection-the spere was definitley glowing gold-when i put binoculars down to look w just my eyes i lost sight of object-ive always wanted to see a ufo and i think i did-i also suspect this sighting and maybe others like it are actually advanced technology kept hidden from the public -i do think this object i saw was further west from 7th ave and bell rd in phoenix where i veiwed sighting-also it was much higher in altitude then the string of baloons-it was a beutiful sunday morning no clouds w sun still to the east of me. ahh! my first sighting!
