Duration:1:30 min

I had just stepped outside to smoke a ciggaret, facing dew south. Just as I had lit the ciggarette a what I thought to be a shooting star appered out of the corner of my eye. The only thing unussuall about this paticular shooting star was that it was fairly large, headed straight for the ground, instead of accross the sky, and it was so bright yellow I had never seen anything like it before. Then as soon as the shooting star faded, directly behind it I saw 4-5 very faint but organized what appered to be stars. Except that these stars shaped like a rounded triangle. And by that mean the lines we not straight but instead curved just so. Another characteristic that ws very peculier was that they to have moved very slowly but always staying the excattly the same distance apart. Which may suggest 4-5 objects flying in formation or one large ship with just its perimiter lights on for lack of a better term. So in other words it just defined the outline of the ship. The ship came out of the Eastern sky heading west at about 10 miles an hour tops, assumeing that in flying terms that is very slow. It almost seemed to creep along at a snails pace. After heading west for about two solid minutes it then turned south and headed directly towards south mountain where alot of other sightings have accured. I also believe that this is the same ship that was wittnessed on march 16 1997 over presscott, paulden, glendale, and then finnally in Tucson all on the same night. This triangle shaped ship seems to almost haunt Phoenix, Presscott, and all of Arizona.

((NUFORC Note: We observe that it is surmise to assume the object described here is the same as any of the multiple objects observed on March 13, 1997. PD))
