UFO Report Saturday, 4/21/07 South Tucson, AZ 2:35 pm

Reported by observer: ((name deleted))

I was driving with my 5-year old son after his baseball game and was at the corner of 6th Ave. and Valencia Blvd. when I noticed a fire NE of us in Tucson. I pointed out the smoke cloud to my son. As I looked more closely I saw a glint of something near the top of the smoke plume. It was at approximately a 45 degree angle, very high in the sky. The weather was mostly clear with clouds over the mountain. The area of the sky where the glint came from was blue.

I pulled over at a Circle K on the corner of 6th Ave. and Valencia Blvd. to get a better look at the glint. I realized that it was a white orb, glinting on and off. Soon I saw three, then five. They were changing places with each other. The smoke plume cleared as I watched. I called my friend ((name deleted)), who was a MUFON meeting in the NE of Tucson. I asked her to look for the objects. She didn’t see them from where she was.

I watched them for about seven minutes. Finally they all disappeared and I left the Circle K and went on my way.

They could not have been helicopters, as they were very high up and too small. They couldn’t have been birds because of the same. I wondered if they were floating ash from the fire, but again, they seemed too high. They were glinting on and off.
