Cylindrical shape with amber colored lights hovering near Route 66

On Wednesday, January 1, 2014 at 1:00 a.m., I was the passenger in a vehicle driving westbound on Route 66 (Central Ave), just passing Unser Blvd. I looked toward the west-southwest direction and in the distance, saw a cylindrical shape with approximately 6 amber colored lights hovering about 50 feet about the ground.

Thinking it was a helicopter, I glanced over at my husband and asked why there would be a helicopter preparing to land on the next block. By the time I looked again, the figure was gone.

When we reached the area where the “helicopter” would have been, there was no sign of anything going on. Traffic was light and nothing in the sky to suggest anything Earthly explainable.
