The object sat a while in a field next to us, then slowly floated right over us until it disappeared.

I just watched the YouTube videos about the lights over Phoenix. I have to tell you that our military and government makes me so mad. Everything has to be a cover-up with them. Maybe they should be more honest with us; don’t we at least deserve that? I was 17 years old and I was teaching a Pop Warner cheer squad on a football field out in Goodyear. There were also other Pop Warner cheer and football teams there practicing. I don’t remember the exact time but it was between 8:30 P.M. and 9:30 P.M. from what I remember. There weren’t less than 500 people there easily, parents, coaches and kids. I noticed that in the field next to us there were several bright lights, almost like street lights. I didn’t pay much attention to them because they weren’t moving and it wasn’t interesting. It did get interesting though when they starting floating towards the field where all of us were practicing.

Everyone just seemed to stop and look up. It couldn’t have been more than 200 to 300 feet above us. We couldn’t see anything; it was just dark like the night sky. We just saw that the lights moved together in perfect formation and floated right over us until it faded off, almost like it disappeared. I didn’t really pay attention to its shape because it was so large in circumference, and so close to us. The lights were not too close together, but close enough together that we could see that it was an object. It also made no sound at all.

I am angry because the military says that the lights were caused by flares. That is crap. Do they think we’re stupid? Last time I checked, flares could not stay in perfect formation with each other, as if they were connected. And I also wasn’t aware that flares could float over a crowd of people without moving up or down, and then all go out at the same time. These lights all went out together, at the same time as if they disappeared. I personally don’t believe that our military has the kind of intelligence to create something like I witnessed that night.
