Location: Bowie, AZ

Duration:1 hr. 28 mins. recorded
recorded a white light getting bigger, smaller, brighter, and dimmer moving throughout the N-NE-S part of night sky

I, ((name deleted))., was on a road trip from Arizona to visit my brother in New Mexico on Thursday, early morning, September 23, 2004, 04:23 a.m. My two friends and I were traveling east bound on U.S. Highway 10. We had just passed the exit northbound for Safford, Az. about 5 miles west of a small town called Bowie, Az. I was sitting in the back seat behind my friend ((name #2 deleted)). I started to gaze out the window as we all do on road trips, when i noticed a bright, white light in the north part of the sky. At first I thought it was the North Star, but quickly realized that it wasn't because it was moving while getting brighter and bigger, then dim and smaller. I quickly grabbed my camcorder and began filming. The object, when i first saw it, was in the north part on the sky on the driver's side of the vehicle. The object was moving side to side and getting bigger, then smaller, etc. At 5:11 a.m., the object moved from the north side of the car to the south side of the car while traveling eastbound. At 5 :19 a.m., the object moved back to the north side of the vehicle. The sun was starting to rise for the day, and i kept recording until the sun completely rose, and I could no longer film the object. It was 5:49 a.m when I was no longer able to record the object.
