Shape: Sphere
Duration:10 minutes
Two Orange orbs seen laterally moving near Maricopa Arizona then suddenly disappearing.

Two bright orange orbs seen appearing suddenly South East above Maricopa AZ.

The two orange orbs seemed to move laterally several hundred feet towards a peculiar contrail a jet had left 15 minutes earlier, then after these two orange orb lit objects approached the contrail approx. 10,000 ft in height they suddenly and completely disappeared.

I was an aircraft technician not only in the military but in the private sector for many years, and I am extremely familiar with aircraft lighting, bulb types, wing markers, belly markers and tail markers, these orange orbs did not have characteristics of any aircraft lighting I have ever seen before. From any make of aircraft.

These similar orange anomalies are seen in the Maricopa area quite frequently but not with such lateral movement as described in this report. The majority of sightings are near the Palo Verde mountain range just west of the city of Maricopa, however what caught my eye about these anomalies is that they were east by southeast of Maricopa this time, and moving laterally until they disappeared instantly.

I have video evidence of the incident to coincide with this report. This is the second report Ive filed about this sighting, however the first seems to be not on your site, so I am making another report.
