Location: Scottsdale, AZ
Shape: Triangle
Duration:1 1/2 hrs.
Loud hovering object with red and green lights over McDowell Mt. Ranch Subdivision in North Scottsdale.

I was awakened by a loud "hovering" noise around 4:00 am and after listening awhile, I went out back and saw the lights of a strange vehicle....at first I thought it was a police helicopter. The light that ended up being the front was green with sometimes a red light joining it. The lights at the other end were red and white. The red lights kept circling in a triangle pattern and occassionally a small white light went off like a flash bulb. Once while in back, it emitted a white searchlight type of signal aimed my direction, but no rays or beams from the light. It hovered in the canyon behind my house for about an hour, making that loud noise. Then it hovered off to the West, hovered for awhile longer, directed that while light my direction again, then went way up in the sky. The green light seemed to be the front end when it left. It really made a LOUD hovering noise, much louder than a helicopter noise.


ADDENDUM FROM WITNESS: I just reported a sighting, then called the Police Dept. who said that it WAS one of their helicopters. So please disregard my report.
