Brilliantly glowing object could move directionally anyway, silent and houvered in a circular pattern and was a circular shape.

I am a non drinker, nor drug user. I work for a church and have never seen what I considered a UFO, though I do believe such phenomena exist.

On Jan 6, 2007 at approximately 11:25 PM, I was standing in my backyard when I looked directly southward into the sky and noticed what appeared to be brighter than normal airplane or helicopter lights. It was approximately 4 miles south and about 800-1000 feet off the ground.

At first, I thought maybe it might be a blimp coming in my direction so the display would be on its eastern facing side. But as I watched the lights I saw that it was moving faster than a blimp would and it seemed to turn to the west and sit stationary with 6-8 white lights in a circular to square configuration. The lights alternated from all white to red.

Having seen numerous airplanes being situated in the airplane flight path to Sky Harbor Airport, I observe that most aircrafts have 2 flight lights in the center with one red and one green light on the end of the wings. These lights I witnessed seemed more brilliant than normal and the manner in which it flew was unlike any aircraft I had ever seen.

It seemed to float in a circular pattern and also moved directionally slightly to the east and then west and up and then down before it turned and headed west.

At this point I went inside to tell my friend to see this. Her report has been sent in also.

We immediately came out and as I was describing to her what I saw, we both saw in the south west sky approximately 1-2 miles off, a glowing object seemingly hanging in the sky about 40-60 feet in width. I don’t know if this was the same object or a second one as I had gone in the house for about 30 seconds to get my friend.

It didn’t appear to be a helicopter or airplane. It appeared to turn on its left side and I saw a bright singular light and 4-6 smaller lights surrounding it in a ring shape pattern.

Although dark in the sky, I could see that it was an aircraft with a shape unlike an airplane. It moved without any engine sound or propeller sound.

It stayed for about 10-15 seconds before floating westward quickly and silently.
