Redish/Orange ball of lite traveling at a high rate of speed arcoss the sky of Heber Arizona.

My 17 year old son and i were at our cabin cleaning the inside due to a break in some months prior.we had to pitch a tent outside to sleep in,our cabin is 14 miles northwest of the town of Heber Arizona off state highway 260 on forest service road 504 and 153 in Chevelon Acers.It is extreamly remote and we have only 3 other cabins near us within a 2 mile radious.I am a lite sleeper and as always when i camp i was wide awake about 2 am laying on my back listening to news on an am station on my transistor radio.my son was asleep,and all of a sudden i heard a ( whushhh whushhh,whushhh....whushhh sound. somthing like when theres a camera/mic mounted stationary on the wall at a nascar race and the cars go sooming by.I looked up at the roof of the tent which is ( very thin )and saw a redish/orange ball mabie between 1000 and 1500 feet up,traveling at a HIGH rate of speed sooming from the northern sky to south changeing direction instintly probly 5 times,then shooting off out of site way to the north and it was gone.i supposed the distence between the change of directions was about 1/8th of a mile,very short.iv only told family members and a few co-workers about this and in all my time spent outdoors camping and hunting iv never seen anything like this.my older brother is a lineman for Arizona public service APS and lives in Snowflake AZ,alot of his local town members have seen tons of siteings and when he told one of them about my experiance he said,quote; oh yes..the whushhh whushhh sounds..we know about them..my brother has seen a number of strange siteings and is highly credable as well as I.

I live in Phoenix Az and have worked for the airlines at skyharbor for 28 years and have always been intrested in UFO'S and i know this was no AIRCRAFT, no engine noise at all,only the sound of somthing solid brakeing thru the air back and forth,glowing redish/orange and round in shape.

It took me a minute or two to understand what i just saw,but like i said..i was wide awake and know exactly what i saw.
