Shape: Light
Duration:5 minutes
Huge bright object just above mountain peak.

My wife and I were driving East on Empire Rd, when we saw a huge white object just above the peak of the ridge of the southern extent of the Superstitions (Tonto Nat'l Forest) maybe 20 miles away.

Looked through binoculars and the light appeared starlike and very large. To my knowledge there is nothing up there that would cause a reflection like that.

After turning a corner and getting back in sight of peak again, object was gone.

I have a clear view of that peak from my patio and have never seen that light before, so I do believe it was something other than a reflection.

Also it wasn't moving, so unlikely to have been a plane's landing light.
