Duration:45 seconds
At 19:45 on 14SEP2011 a friend and I were travelling south on SR-51 in Phoenix, AZ. As we were approaching and crossing over Thunderbird Rd, I noticed a very bright Blue-Green (like an acetylene flame) Tear shaped light coming towards the raised highway from the Northwest heading at a slight angle down and toward the highway. I thought it might be a helicopter.

As we crossed over Thunderbird, I pointed it out to my friend and then it very quickly disappeared with a few small white balls shot out in front that quickly disappeared.

We both saw it disappear and looked for a bright light if it crashed but did not see one.

I don’t know what it was. It might have been a very large flare?
