|A very bright stationary light,not an aircraft.
On the nights of Jan. 22 to Jan. 25th I observed low in the southwestern sky a bright light that hooverd about a mile high. It varied from two miles from my house to maybe ten miles Looking through binoculars it appears to be two lights which are very bright and white .Sometimes these lights criss-cross one another or appear to merge together.I can not tell if there is a craft attatched to these lights. Tonight I first saw the light about one mile from my house, about 30 minutes later I could barely see it . It appearred to be about ten, maybe twenty miles away. Then within five minutes it was within two miles from my house again. Around nine oclock at night the lights just dissapear. They do not appear to fade away into the horrizone, they just shut off instantly.Having been in Vietnam I know that these were not flairs.Also living within 5 miles of Luke Airforce Base the possibility that the lights could be from a helicopter occured to me,however two hours in one area four nights in a row would seem strange. In addittion the lights were to large to come from an aircraft.
((NUFORC Note: We suspect Venus, but that is a guess. The binoculars may not be perfectly columnated, which might explain the two images. PD))
