A gigantic red cloud with an inner flickering light was seen hovering over the Scottsdale/Tempe area at 2 am on July 14th, 2008

I am writing this report at 2:47 am to report a UFO that i saw over Scottsdale possibly as far south as Tempe.

I live in north Scottsdale and the window where i saw the UFO was facing south. At about 2 am earlier tonight on July 14th 2008, i went to close my window and i saw what appeared to be a red cloud in the sky hovering over Scottsdale. Upon closer examination i saw what appeared to be a red inner glowing light and there reddish-orange cloud that surrounded it. The shape of the cloud was a circle and it flickered with the inner light. The feeling of seeing that is one that i will never forget. My heart started to beat rapidly and my mind started racing.

I didn't know whether to wake up my parents or call my friends to check it out. I tried to call a friend of mine, but he did not answer. I decided not to wake up my parents, because they would have just said i was crazy and told me to go back to sleep.

I didn't want to lose sight of the object either. Anyway this object just stayed in one spot the whole time, i did not see it fly vertically. The only movement that could have happened was for it to move south, The cloud was strongest in the sky for about 5 minutes and than progressively got less bright over the few minutes. The weird thing was the shape of the cloud didn't get smaller. It was still huge and it just seemed to get less bright until it vanished. The size was huge, it looked almost as big as a full moon does. In conclusion i want to say that i saw something tonight that i have never seen before in my life.

I am convinced that the object in the sky that i saw was way too big and way too bright to be anything that our military has disclosed.
