|Hovering ligths over Buckeye. Viewed from Miller and Baseline road. Two seperate craft.
On December 9th 2009 at approximately 21:00 hours, I was driving southbound on Miller road approaching Southern avenue. I noticed two bright lights to the south that appeared to be about one mile away near the old mill. As I approached my turn at Maricopa I was still watching the lights as they were out of the ordinary. They appeared to slowly be moving to the west as I was traveling west down Maricopa road. This is when I became alarmed.
As I made the turn onto sunset point south bound, I kept fixated on the two lights hovering in the sky. They appeared to stop moving. I raced to baseline road as quickly as possible.
When I got there I parked on the south side of baseline looking south. The object was approximately 300 yards away hovering about 100ft in the air. I could barely make out a dark silhouette between the lights. They appeared to slowly begin moving south when the light on the right side of the object flickered out slowly. The other light remained, but appeared to be dimming. It took approximately 30 seconds to one minute before the left side or remaining light dimmed then flickered out as well.
I regained my composure and began to try to rationalize the sighting. Maybe it was something I just hadn’t noticed before. Anyway my Wendy’s was getting cold, so I began to leave. I looked back up, and the lights were back, but twice as far away as and farther east than before. I realized I had my digital camera with me, I took video for 1min 45 seconds at this point. The lights hovered and slowly started to move south.
Throughout this entire time the object never lost altitude, and wasn’t moving fast enough to achieve this by conventional means like everyday aircraft. No noise either, just silence.
Video was stopped due to poor camera quality. I continued to watch for approximately a minute longer absolutely fixated. I looked away to prep the camera for more video. When I looked up there was another set of two lights. Closer together and not parallel to each other like the first lights. I took video again for 1min 45 seconds.
The first set were still there, but began to flicker out just like the first time. First the right one went out quite quickly. Then the left remained illuminated, but appeared to be dimming. The newer set of lights maintained its tight formation with the first object as the remaining light from it disappeared. They then began to slowly move south until I could no longer see them. Entire elapsed time was approximately 20 minutes.
