Reported: 5/29/1998 06:20
Posted: 3/21/2003
Location: Phoenix, AZ
Shape: Oval
Duration:3 hours
Oval plastic looking craft, translucent, reflective, with numerous projections from the bottom.

Object was seen before sunup. Surface was reflective and brightness was greater than Venus during full phase. Object is an ovoid and appears much like a hot air balloon. However, it has not moved in over two hours, a balloon normally moves with air currents. Air currents during Phoenix mornings are east to west. The object's composition resembles polyethelyne plastic, but the entire object appears to be of the same composition. Three "legs" can be seen from the bottom of the object and a large cylindrical section hanging from the bottom. This thing appears to be a balloon of some sort but it is the strangest balloon I have ever seen.
