Location: Casa Grande, AZ
Shape: Light
Duration:just a very few minutes
I am a truck driver, was @ the receiver, dropping my trailer. Both the receiver and I were outside,(trailers are put on a large scale platform, and titled into the air, to empty out the product into a conveyor/hopper), Both the man that worked for the receiver and I were looking up @ the nose of the trailer, up in the air, when I noticed a dim light, slowly brighten ,,to a very bright light(like a reostat, landing light brightness), I turned to the the reciever and said, did you see that?, and he replied, "that's what I'm lookin' at". We both watched as this light SLOWLY,(reostat action again), dimmed to black/nothing.We looked @ each other,,and both commented on the "oddness" of what we both saw. @ this time it started to appear again,in the slow, reostat increase, IN THE SAME SPOT, and stayed the steady, landing light type brightness, and then gradually faded to black. We looked @ each other again, and "Jim" said that this was to strange. We both could clearly see the stars, and there was no running lights of any kind(and we are located just south of an airport, requiring the use of these). I travel the southwestern US in my job,,and have seen several questionable things in the night sky, most of which I have always attributed to meteors or comets, this series of light were neither, to the best of my judgement. There was no aircraft noise in the area, no running lights were seen, and no contrail/ tails were seen preceeding what we had witnessed. We both agreed what we had seen was out of the ordinary. After we waited/looked for awhile, "jim" said " musta been a lost UFO, turned on his cab light to see his mapbook", we both chuckled, and i mentioned that this was one for The Art Bell show(which I had just finished listening to you both on).

Bright, white lights, fading in, and out of intensity,,of landing light intensity.
