|Eliptical craft/formation sighted over Green Valley, Arizona 5am 8/12/06
Early dawn. No stars visible in sky. Through front room window facing East I saw a bright Eliptical shaped light low in the Eastern sky just above neighbor's roof. Resembled aircraft with red and green running lights. Saw red and green light in flashes. Object was not travelling across sky but appeared stationary.Ran outside to end of the block at Esperanza Blvd. and W. Paseo Solana to observe looking Northeast. Object Rose almost imperceptibly slowly in the sky to a greater height gradually changing shape and size,to a round shape,the back to somewhat of an elipse, growing smaller and larger and smaller again (very slowly) until it appeared to my perspective as a pinpoint of light, like a large star. At this point I saw that there was another identical craft in a line directly beneath the first one but at a lower altitude.These lights did not pulse but remained at a steady luminosity. Second craft only observed during the pinpoint of light phase. Second craft was observed for a good period of time and was definitely present and was not a reflection or trick of the light.Importantly, My position was in very close proximity to the Mt. Whipple observatory atop Mt. Hoplins,directly to the South. Running lights were no longer able to be observed from my perspective when the craft had reached these higher altitudes. Craft apparently were travelling up and away toward the Northeast from my position, since Light apeared to grow smaller, grow larger, get smaller again and then wink out. Observed phenomenon for a good 10 to fifteen minutes from around 5:05 to 5:20 am from when I came in and imediately noted my impressions. Have previously witnessed Belgium triangular style craft over Marcola Hills (Springfield) in southern Oregon in fall of 1997, and had quick glimpse of boomerang wing craft over this location last year.
