Phoenix/Anthem AZ Lights March 25, 2004.

It was just after dark on Thursday, March 25, 2004, when my husband and I were sitting in our back yard watching the stars when we observed a long, cigar shaped, tubular object with colored lights - many colors,not just a couple like a plane - and it was traveling slowly over the horizon in a Northeast trajectory. It was extremely large, possibly as large as a football field. It was definitely much too large to be an airplane. Neither of us have ever seen a UFO before and we both were shocked at how big this flying object was. We observed it flying fairly low, just over a residential area near Phoenix and then disappeared behind some mountains. We did not make a report to authorities but still we are in awe over what we saw. We are both educated individuals and not the type of people to make something like this up. My husband did observe the object through binoculars but I just observed it with the naked eye. It was enormous and had many colors changig on it from red, blue, yellow, green etc. We know there have been lights reported in the Phoenix area that were V shaped, but this was a long tube of colored lights. Fascinating!
