Shape: Changing
Duration:10 minutes
Object morphed after descent

Myself and co-worker stepped outside at approximately 2:25 p.m on a smoking break.Above Scottsdale airport we had noticed what looked like a square reflective piece of paper descending slowly in a falling leaf motion.At roughly 1500 to 1800 ft. the object changed into a classic oblong "cigar shaped" object and slowly departed to the North towards Cave Creek.At first we thought it was a piece of paper and immediately due to the charactaristics assumed that it might be an aluminum part that may have falling off of an aircraft.We abandoned that idea once the object "stopped falling." About 3 of the 10 minutes we thought that there was a conventional explanation but as ourr minds were processing the info we quickly realized something much weirder was going on.I have never seen anything like this in my life before and am a slight bit shaken up as I type this.I came across this website while doing a Google search.
