Location: Phoenix (west valley), AZ
|While driving S on the 101 freeway spotted very brite yellowish light to s sw of valley made coment to girlfriend that this light was not moving as a normal aircraft would do then 3 others appeared and just seemed to hang in the air looked like landing lights but no movement from my est. dist. from them they if one aircraft would have to be large got home 2mi from first sighting and continued to watch did snap some photos will hope they come out . As for my self having been around lots of aircraft and an aspiring private pilot I always watch the sky and this was not any type of aircraft or lights I have ever seen before . I did turn on the mobil scanner in the truck and heard no abnormal activity all other air traffic in the sky was normal just like any other night , they appeared then they faded real quick did not see any strobe or marker lights in the area the way a plane being vectored in the sky and turning would do. very strange this one has me wondering? As we all know about the Phx. lights I did not see those first hand but this looked alot like the objects I saw on tv. I will contiue to keep my eyes to the sky.
Brite yellowish (landing light) look to them but no movement? Clear night Unlimited visibility Not a lot of light polution from surounding street lights. No report on scanner aircraft bands or Alb. center from other aircraft . I monitor all freq. on a regular basis no reports to local sherrifs office on monitored ferq. Did not call Luke AFB at this time. Very different traffic patern if this was a standard aircraft. My home is 2mi from Luke AFB did not see any strange latenight activity in the area. My brother ((name deleted)) who just started his web page www.((deleted)).com also linked from Artbells site is a person that I spend a great deal of time with and he helps explain some of the things that can be seen in the night sky I have several hundred hrs watching the sky with him and this was not a normal light or one that I have ever seen? Thank you for your time Please let me know if any other reports come in on this .
