V shaped object that flew from the north of phoenix and eventually right over phoenix 3/13/97

I was sitting in my jacuzzi on the evening of March 13th, 1997. It was sometime between 7:30 and 8:30 P.M.. My recliner seat in my jacuzzi at that time faced the north. I could see planes coming in from the northwest every couple of minutes which I assume were coming in from Las Vegas and they still fly that same pattern today. As I was looking what would be due north I notice 5 lights heading straight this way as if they were following I-17. I was thinking I was going to see maybe the concord. The lights were not real high off the horizon when I noticed them. I set an watched them coming in anticipation to see what they are. At a distance they looked like they were in a straight line. As they got closer they gained in altitude gradually and I could see a V formation. There is a tree in the lot behind my house that they went behind for just a few seconds. When they got on the south side of the tree I was amazed at how they had even gotten higher in the sky. The lights never broke there V formation. I could see that this was one object of an enormous size. The lights flew directly over Phoenix while gaining altitude at an accerlerated speed. I watch the lights along with my Mom and cousin Katy. As the lights gained in speed and altitude the craft made a straight angle turn with no curve in its turn. It was simply amazing. I have seen footage over the years and only one video showed the same object or one similiar to what we seen. The lights that supposedly appeared down in south phoenix I do believe were flares. The object I witnessed was flying and had no sound at all. It is way to big for any aircraft that we as the general public no of. I do not know much about the other lights in south phoenix but I wish they would debunk them and focus on the huge craft that actually flew from the north and over the city of phoenix. I saw the video of the lights that were over Phoenix last night[4/22/08. At first they resembled the lights I saw however the front light was not there and that video showed the lights moving towards and away from each other so I know it was not the same object I saw in 1997. The object I witnessed had "fixed" lights on it and they looked the same in roundness from any direction you looked at them. When I was a kid my brother and I have one other sighting I would like to talk or write about but at this time I would like to know more about the object that flew over ! Phoenix.
