Sighting Report
Occurred : 5/24/1999 11:00 (Entered as : 5/24/99 11:00)
Reported: 5/31/1999 16:12
Posted: 3/21/2003
Location: Glendale, AZ
Shape: Disk
Duration:3 min.
We saw a silver disc not moving at all at about 7,000 feet (estimate) and watched it for about 3 min. We had decided it must be a weather balloon untill it left at an incredible rate of speed to the south east. Before the object left we saw an airliner from sky harbor airport pass under the object.

I live in the Chicago area and was on a trip to visit family in Tucson. The morming of the 24th. my wife and her sister and I drove up to the Phoenix area to visit a friend in Glendale. I had not seen him in 3 years since he moved to Arizona. We were in the back yard sitting by the pool and I was admiring the clear blue sky when I noticed the disc shaped object. We all saw it just hanging there and we all saw it leave at an incredible rate of speed. The next morning back in Tucson we also saw a missle test from White Sands that failed. The news had been broad casting info on the test so we got up at 4:00 am to watch, just thought I would throw that in even though it has nothing to do with the disc sighting. I am a 46 year old, have a pilot's licence and about 500 hours flying time. Am also into astronomy. This is the first time I have ever seen anything I could not explain.
