Location: Golden Valley, AZ
Shape: Light
Duration:3 minutes
We were driving down a dirt side road in Golden Valley when we spotted in the sky over the hills a ball of light with a fan shaped beam of light coming out of one side of it. It was not moving but just hovering over the hills between Golden Valley and Laughlin. We stopped the car and got out and started taking pictures. suddenly the ball of light dissappeared behind the fanned shaped beam of light. Then both the ball of light and the fan shaped beam of light dissappeared leaving a misty light slowly faded away. We got back in the car and drove about a 100 yards when we spotted another ball of light with a trail of light behind it moving fast towards the ground behind the hills until it vanished.

On 3/4/99 around 7:00 P.M. my girlfriend, her brother and girlfriend and myself were driving down a dirt road in Golden Valley Atrizona on our way to Lauglin. It was completely dark at this time. Clear sky. I was in the passenger seat and my girlfriend was driving. The hills between Golden Valley and Laughlin were on my right as I looked out the passenger window. My girlfriend noticed an object out the passenger side window over the hills. I looked and saw the object. My girlfriends brother who lives in Golden Valley immidiately screamed to stop the car. I jumped out of the car. Over the hill hovered a large white ball of light with a large fan shaped beam of very white lite coming directly outwards of its right side. The white fan shaped beam of light looked as if it had some sort of mist spraying in it. The ball of light that the beam was coming out of was a lighter white. It seemed to be round shaped but it was hard to see its form. As I began to take pictures it looked as if the ball of light suddenly moved behind the fan shaped beam of light. Then both the ball and beam of light vanished leaving a misty looking afterglow. This all happened in about 1 to 2 minutes. The object made absolutely no sounds at anytime. Then we noticed what looked like a fast moving plane flying towards where the object had dissappeard. We got back into the car and drove about a 100 yards when we spotted another object. This one was farther east over the hills. This was a large ball of white light with a white tail of misty white light coming out of it. It appeared to be moving fast downwards towards the ground until it dissappeared. I am a Quality Inspector from Tukwila Washington, my girlfriend is an employee at Boeing worker and my girlfriends brother and girlfriend live and work in the Golden Valley area. None of us have ever seen a UFO before and are completely certain of what we saw.
