|I watched it for 40 minutes, with my Binoculars and someone on the phone, letting me know I was not the only one! This make twice now!
At exactly 6:45 pm I went out on my balcony to smoke a cigarette. I looked south in the sky and saw a very simular colored light, to one I have previously reported to this site. It was a reddish/pink colored light, that seemed to fade and brighten. Not Blink! at first the light stayed stationary at about 11 o'clock high. I then went and retrieved my Binoculars to get a clearer look at the object. Sure enough, it was the exact same light that I had seen before. It had 4 seperate bright points. Such as 4 engines would look, positioned at 12 o'clock, 3 o'clock, 6 o'clock and 9 o'clock. The object then began to move eastward, VERY SLOWLY and it was at this time that I called 911 to see if anyone else had reported it. They informed me that I was not the only one to see it. They had a number of calls about it, and suggested that I call Gateway International Airport. I explained to the operator that if I were to go get my phone book, look up the number to the airport, and call them. The object would surely be gone. This is what happened to me previously. So, instead, I just kept watching it. I then got a phone call from a friend out in east mesa, she wanted to know if I was also aware of the light in the sky. I said yes. We then kept in contact via the phone all the way through the total sighting. It finally disappeared at about 7:20pm after moving as far east as i60 and Gilbert road. It got real bright, real dim, real bright, etc., etc. Then all of a sudden, It was gone. I truly hope that someone will find out what it is that I have had the luck to view 2 times now. I did call gateway, and they said they too were looking at it, but had no information pertaining to it's origin. THIS WAS SO COOL! I hope it get's the attention it surely deserves.
