Tiny neon blue light ufo wittnessed by three in Tempe, Arizona

Myself and two friends of mine were traveling southbound on McClintock approaching the US 60 overpass when our friend driving stopped the car in the middle of the road and instructed us to look up at the blue light descending from the night sky in front of us. There was hardly any traffic on the road because of the hour. This neon blue light moved downward toward as if coming down a staircase.

The object stopped in front of a business park just to the left of us, approximately 25 yards away, and changed from a blue light orb to three neon blue squares linked together in a vertical rectangle tilted forward from the top. The neon blue light pulsed at a very high rate and radiated from the the blue squares but the object itself made no sound. The object itself appeared to be slightly smaller than the light on the light post next to it, approximately 10" in length. It hovered from side to side and up and down, turning sideways and back again; remaining in an a! rea of about 2-3 cubit feet. As it turned sideways to reveal it's profile there didn't appear to be anything behind the blue light bar that we could see. At first we thought it must be a toy. There was not a single person around the object or in the parking lot of the business park. Our driver said it could not be a toy because no transmitter could reach that far, given the fact that it descended from a visual point out of the night sky high above us. A car coming from behind us also stopped to watch this intriging object as well as a man in a truck coming from the other direction. The object then returned to the blue light orb and began traveling NE just above the roof tops. It seemed to be traveling very slow at first so I told my friend driving to follow it. Before we could get the car turned around the object acceleratled in a straight line NE and disappeared.

I believe whatever it was came with an objective and that it traveled so low to the roof tops so that it could travel without much detection. I also believe that it's destination were somewhere reasonably close or else it would have made it's descention elsewhere. Northeast from where we were located is a military reserve base, Northeast Mesa and Fort McDowell Mtns. I live right next to the military reserve base where there is a jet and pilot ready 24/7 for take off in case of an intrusion. In the three months that I've lived here I've heard the jet take off just after midnight twice within the last week.

Thank you for allowing me to share our experience.
