Summary : My wife alerted me to a strange light in the sky. "A ufo" I was indoors - I replied " Oh yea...hmm"She insisted I com and take a look.Looking north, north west slightly, a very bright objectmoved in a somewhat eratic manner. Occasionally moving from left to right very quickly.My wife said that it one point had a bright "tail"extending from it.I did not see this feature. It did shange in color from white to orange.At one point it suddenly dropped out of sightstraight down.I went to the front yard to have another look.at this point I saw the object much higher in the sky. Slowly moving north and slightly west.I drove to a location with less light obstruction - within 5 min it had moved rather far away. Traveling north and slightly west. My guess in the direction of Ashfork or even Kingman. There was a 2nd object traveling in the same direction as well.When we first spotted it it seemed to nr VERY close to us.The eratic motion, change in intensity, ruled out an aircraft.Last spotted around 23:15 hours headed north north west as I said.Shape: oval in nature.Color: white changing to orange then staying orange.As it traveled toward the north looked like smaller sattelite objects assosiated with it at times. Was hard to tell.See
