Location: Mohawk Valley, AZ
Shape: Other
Duration: 60sec.
Characteristics: There were lights on the object
When driving East between Dome and Mohawk Valley in Western Arizona I spotted a boomerang shaped craft just south of I-8. When I first spotted it, it appeared to be stationary but this may have been due to the angle at which I was viewing it. The craft was very quiet and banked to the southwest. Initially I just stared due to the conspicuous nature of the craft, it had such large luminous lights running along the underside . There were five lights and they were round. I have seen many objects in the sky but never anything I could not identify as a planet, rocket test, etc. The experience was somewhat surreal as it was very unexpected. However given the area through which I was traveling I expect that it was some kind of military test plane. The lights stand out in my mind due to the fact that I have never seen an aircraft with such large bright lights.
