Location: Scottsdale, AZ
Shape: Cigar
Duration: 2 hours
Characteristics: There were lights on the object, The object changed color, There were aircraft in the vicinity or aircraft chasing the object
The object was first observed in the southern sky at 23:15 hours. It then moved to the south eastern sky where it remained static for approximately two hours. The object emitted brilliant white, blue, and red lights which appeared to flash in sequence. As an aerospace worker with more than 20 years experience in fixed-wing aircraft and helicopters, I determined the object was not conventional. It remained in a static position for two hours and emitted no sound. As I had no optical devices, such as binoculars, I could not confirm its true shape. I can confirm that the lights observed with the naked eye were aligned horizontally and appeared to flash or pulse in a left to right sequence. My observations were confirmed by my teenage son who likewise witnessed the event. I placed calls to the local airport and television newsroom to inquire if there had been other reports. There were none made.
