Strobing blue light, LONG BRIGHT white tail, dropping "midair bombs" and released a single orange sphere.

Currently on vacation for a month in Arizona, but reside in the Chicago-land area, I was watching the show "fastlane" on fox, phoenix time, when i looked out the window and noticed a blueish-white strobe light type phenomenon going on in the sky out of the corner of my eye, which appeared to be about 15-20 miles away, with out a sound the phenomenon turned spectacular and unimagineable, and erupted a glowing white streak of sparks behind it, going straight down out of the sky. I raced to the window to get a closer look and it stopped. I sat back down to continue watching the tv, again out of the corner of my eye the same strobing light released an orange sphere of light which resembled the so called "flare" of the massive ufo sighting that occured in Phoenix's past, which disappeared behind the initial blue strobing light i was seeing after about 5 seconds, Followed by more white streaking spark-like in the sky, about a 1000 foot tail id imagine. After doing various maneuvers, "S" shapes, and dive's, which were highlighted by the white spark streak, the ufo which i was seeing dropped several "midair-bombs" which resembled a high altitude fireworks mortar explosion, the colors of the sparks comming off the explosions, 2 different colors, one was solid purple, and one was solid green. The purest of these two colors i have ever seen. I was in complete awe, when i then raced to get the attention of my brothers girlfriends mom. She was also fascinated by the encounter. The site was so spectacular, and visible, there had to have been atleast 1000 people witness on the road driving west at the time, that had to have seen this. It was in the Northwestern sky , please if there is anyone out there who also witnessed this even please post a report. There is an airforce base close around phoenix, during this day, I also witnessed a jet training. 4 Jets flying in a cross pattern formation giving off an exhaust they had control over, releasing it when they went straight up, or straght down doing maneuvers.

I heard no sounds during the ufo encounter, but i definatley heard the roar of the fighter jets during the day, thats how I differentiated the phenmomena i saw, from the training exercises, although the training could have been for a different unknown craft that I witnessed. ((name deleted))
