Shape: Other
Duration: 5 minutes
Characteristics: There were lights on the object
Lemon-shaped UFO, covered with rows of lights, bigger than a helicopter, bigger than a bus.

The object was described as lemon-shaped, larger than a helicopter and larger than a bus. It moved in a linear, smooth, rapid motion -- faster than a small plane. It was estimated to be 1-3 miles from the observers, traveling towards the southeast, and seemingly moving lower in altitude. It was "fairly covered" with a number of white lights, uniformly positioned. Most lights were not blinking; a few were pulsing on and off.

Date: March 17, 2004 Time: 7:00 PM MST (dark sky) Viewers Location: 48th St and Warner Blvd, Phoenix AZ UFO Location: East of viewers, about 1-3 miles away, heading southeast.

Viewers: my in-laws: 80 yr old male, 75 yr old female. Neither has ever reported seeing UFOs before. They reported that about 30 people were standing around the intersection, looking up at the object.

((NUFORC Note: We have requested that the witness have the others submit reports. We do not understand how, and why, out of a group of "30 people," who apparently experienced a UFO sighting, only two would submit a report!! PD))
