|Heber/Overgaard, AZ 85933 Lat.= 34. 25. 53. N Lon.= 110. 35. 36 W Observed a bright white, round, silent, object moving slowly west.
On Saturday February 11, 2006 at about 5:45 in the morning a friend who was visiting for the weekend decided to step outside and take a look at the morning sky. I was busy making the coffee when he came in quite astounded and excited at what he had just witnessed.
He said he was enjoying the views of the winter skies when all of a sudden a brilliant white, round, light appeared directly north and at approximately 70° alt. above the horizon moving slowly west. I asked him if he was holding something at arms length between his thumb and index finger that would represent the objects size what would it be? He said, without hesitation, “about the size of a BB”.
One of the strangest things about it, he said, was that when it appeared it was already moving “as if it decided to just appear as it was moving slowly west”. He stated that it made no sound or changed it’s direction of travel. After observing it for about 30 seconds or so he said he picked up the faint sound of a jet and then he saw it pop up over the trees in the west. When he glanced back over to the object it had stopped moving. After just a few seconds the object headed north at an incredible speed and disappeared below the horizon. He said he tried to count down the seconds using the 001 method as it moved away from the jet but never made it to the second zero.
Our friend has always been a true blue skeptic about these things, but now as he states, “I’m not so sure about this anymore”.
This is the second, close to identical, sighting of this object from our property in six months. I filed an incident report last September 30, 2005 that was an identical match to this one except that object was literally on top of us. It’s color, shape, point of origin (north), and direction and speed of departure (north) were the same.
I have no idea what this object is, where it came from, or what it’s interest is in this area but my curiosity is now getting the best of me. I would like to find out how many other sightings have taken place that have not been reported.
