|strange stationary orb light visible statewide over arizona
I received a txt message saying look northwest. i looked northwest and saw a bright white light, circular, similar to a full moon. It was brighter than the venus transit two months ago, and larger. i hit astronomy.com to see if there were any planets visible today and there were not. after approx 30 minutes past 1800 hrs i was told via txt that the object had dissappeared. there is an article about it already on azcentral.com, saying that UFO reports are coming in statewide all saying a large visible light, stationary is in the sky. link.
