Location: Arizona (rural; Buck Eye Salome Rd.), AZ
Shape: Sphere
Duration: 10-15 sec
the spheres moved in unison and seem to follow the leader

Monday April 18th 11 am.

On a 2 lane road headed west on a road called buck eye salome rd,in arizona. about 1 mile before a road called 75E.

About a quarter of a mile down the road on the rightside along the road edge i saw several round objects that appeared to be gold and opaque. At first I tried to somehow label these as possibly bubbles or balloons .But after watching it they did not behave as that. The spheres were twirling and following each other as in a spiral line.

My brother also observed them. He did not know what to make of it either. The line or lines of spheres were moving up and down and back up again like a roller coaster movement. They happened to move around a larger tree. We estimated the sizes to be that of very large beach balls maybe 3 feet or larger in diameter, because of the distance we were from them.

As we drove closer they moved out and around the tree then disappeared into the tall bushes and grass area. The terrain and the position of our vehicle made it difficult to visually track them once we caught up to the tree we first saw them at.

We still dont know what they were.The terrain is very open and vegetation is sprawling. In some areas it is dense and some not. That is also strange to us. Because we could not see what happened or where they went. We looked for a dust devil or wind activity but saw no dust. Even if it was a dust devil,I dont think it could control the formation and co ordintated the movement we saw.

((NUFORC Note: We spoke via telephone with one of the two witnesses, and he seemed quite lucid, and very objective in his description of the sighting. We suspect he is a quite credible witness. PD))
