Location: Tucson, AZ
Shape: Light
Duration: 5 to 10 seconds
In Tucson Az I saw a point of light moving over the Catalina Mountains. It appeared to be rotating or tumbling. It was about 9:05 Am,

I was on a hike with a friend, He said look, look at that I looked up and did not see anything. I moved and out from behind a saguaro cactus I saw a point of light moving from the west to the east over the Catalina Mountains. As I watched the light it appeared to tumble or rotate, either description could describe what I saw. This spot of light moved perfectly level as it passed over the mountains. I noticed it did not change in itís brilliance like an aircraft reflecting the sun would. My best estimate of the area over the mountains that it covered would be about five or six miles maybe more. As I watch this light my cell phone rang and I answered it, when I finished the conversation the light was gone.
