Duration:30 to 45 seconds
|On the night of January 17th 2007 I was traveling west bound on Highway 8 just east of Gila Bend Arizona. Approximate time was 9:00 pm.
Up in the sky in front of me and to the south, up above what appeared to be an airport were 3 glowing slightly flashing objects white/orange in color they appeared for about ten to twenty seconds. When the 3 large objects became 5 objects and appeared and disappeared back into the 3 objects. This lasted for an additional ten to twenty second.
From where I was I would say they were one thousand to two thousand feet above the airport. Very large larger than a house. I pulled off the road to see if what ever I saw would reappear. I waited for a few minutes enough time to get a little spooked. I got back on the road to San Diego. I do not know what I saw but I know it was not any thing I had seen before at night.
On the way back to San Diego just out side of Gila Bend I saw a lot of aircraft flying towards the direction I just had come from. I got off the highway one more time and notice they were about 4 helicopters and to the west and south and 4 jet aircraft to the north heading in an easterly direction. I could not tell if they were military or not.
