Posted: 7/5/2014
Location: Tucson, AZ
Shape: Flash
Duration:40 minutes intermittent
Points of blue-white light, some with red, intermittently flashing on and off and streaking against the backdrop of mountains

Over a period of approximately 40 minutes, against the mountains immediately north of Tucson several episodes of flashing lights were seen. Most were blue white, some had red with them. Intermittently the lights flashed on and off. Some streaked across the mountains and disappeared. Some remained stationary and could be seen for several seconds. Often there was nothing and then a series of lights flashed on. Sometimes they were stationary but flashed on and off in the same position.

Never have I seen anything like this. My wife has more acute vision than I and said she saw that some lights flashing were dome shaped. She also saw what she described as rays emanating from the red part of the light.

The streaking lights moved very quickly across the mountains. The view I had covered several miles. When I called 911 to report this, I was told that earlier similar lights were seen on mountains slightly west of me called Putsch Ridge. That area is not visible from my balcony.
