A large flagellated bug, the size of a house, silently floating around Phoenix.

After dozing off to sleep while sleeping outside on my back, I suddenly awoke to see a massive object descending toward me from above. It appeared half the size of my outstretched hand until it reached its closest point, then appearing the full size of my outstretched hand held at arm’s length from my body.

The object seemed to be the size of a large house or larger. It was not illuminated (and appeared dark in color with some irregular features that seemed to reflect light) but seemed to be a large creature of some sort (resembling a beetle as seen from below).

It also appeared to resemble a dark colored octopus as seen from below, but with tentacles much shorter (each only a quarter the thickness of its body) and more wirery than those on an octopus. The ‘tentacles’ (approximately ten or twenty located around its periphery), in fact were more like the cilia of a cell seen under a microscope. These ‘cilia’, flagellated and shivered rapidly as if being rapidly blown by an erratic wind, yet the sky was very still (with no wind) and the object made no noise that I could hear (as a loud commercial jet was taking off from a nearby airport the moment I awoke). The object had a highly organic look, as if it were a creature (maybe a large bug) of some type.

After I’d watched it approach for about two seconds, I yelled thinking that it may crash into me. The moment I yelled, it abruptly changed direction (without slowing down) and began moving away and to my right. As it ascended to the right and away from me, it slowly faded away and vanished.

The entire encounter lasted approximately five to six seconds.
