Duration:2 hours
Bright star like object dancing in night sky for hours above North Glendale/Peoria Arizona.

We live in North Glendale, Arizona, on the border of Peoria. Directly above us, we started watching what we "thought" was a common satellite until we saw it move in many directions, almost like dancing. It would move east, many short bursts of speed, then slow down, sometimes hover/pause, then back slowly to the west, sometimes fast, U turns, circles, pause, then south then north, every which way. (We agreed it was brighter and larger than a satellite. Like a very bright star, but not as bright as a planet.)

We phoned a friend a few miles SE of us and they said from their vantage point, it appeared to bounce up and down. They told their next door neighbor who said they watched it the night before, Sept. 5.

Unable to see it via camera.

We observed it until approx 23:30 then went to bed.

Will contact Lowell Observatory scientist on Sept. 8 upon their return from Labor Day.

((NUFORC Note: We suspect that the possibility of a star would have to be ruled out, before we could conclude that the witnesses had seen a genuine UFO. We suspect that the stars, Vega and Deneb, are possible candidates. PD))
