Location: Tucson, AZ
Shape: Light
Duration:15 minutes
3 green/blue, non flashing lights hung in the N/W Tucson sky, the space between the objects varrying as they hovered.

I was near the intersection of Columbus and 5th street in Tucson, the night of July 25th, about 10;00 pm when I noticed the three lights hanging low to the horizon in the N/W sky. It struck me as particularly unusual because their brightness and color belied the usual stars or planets that might be seen there. Their position was so low, the city's glare mkes it all but impossible that they could have been stars. And besides, their positions were drifting. >From my vantage point, they appeared to be at least 10-15 miles away from me, but certainly it could have been much further than that. I was too far away to see a whole lot more than what I told you, but I certainly would be happy to confirm any other possible, more close up viewings of what was seen. These were NOT flares. From my vantage point, one of the lights was clearly moving upwards, and often times appeared to draw very close to the most upper of the three lights. Also, the lights did not blink and they're movements were not the movements of any conventional aircraft. i.e. helicoptor or plane. I wish I had been closer, and I'll be interested to see what the papers say I was looking at in the morning. I was returning home from work when I saw the lights, so I have no idea how long they may have been there before I saw them, or where they may have been. I only know I first picked them up at about 9:50, and lost sight of them at about 10:10. From where I was, they appeared to be drifting off further to the N/W, and I lost them below the tree line at that point.
