Location: Bullhead City, AZ
|Star-like object, moving ENE, emitting bright flashes.
On September 29th, around 7:50 p.m., I walked down our steps and looked up to the sky, as I am an avid sky watcher. I quickly noticed what appeared to be a very bright star at 140 degrees S.E. and 60 degrees off the horizon. I know a bright star should not be in this location.
I watched for about 30 seconds, and it dimmed by about 75% and started moving slowly north. After 10 minutes the object was about 80 degrees west and 70 degrees off the horizon.
I ran inside to get my binoculars and when I got back outside it took me about 5 minutes to find the object again as it had dimmed again to a point barely visible to the naked eye.
The object was about 40 degrees N.E. and still 70 degrees off the horizon.
At that moment, a bright flash came from the object. It was as if a large camera flashed. I followed the object with my binoculars as it moved E.N.E. Slowly, and every minute or so, the object flashed brightly. In all, I saw eight flashes as the object moved E.N.E. and out of my sight.
The sighting lasted about 30 minutes. I wrote the details of this sighting down that evening, as well as the compass readings. My binoculars are 10x50 power and all compass readings are from magnetic north.
