|Gliding silent set of lights over Gilbert, AZ.
2/08/10 I took a break from work and walked outside the building at approx 8:22pm. Building is located at 459 n Gilbert Rd in Gilbert, Az. I saw in the north area of the sky, over the apartment building across the street a set of lights.
There were two steady white lights with blinking red light equidistance in between them. The red light was smaller than the two white lights and appeared to flash off something metallic or silvery in color when it was blinking. The object was about the size of my thumb to the second joint held horizontally at arm’s length, that was the width of the object. There was absolutely no sound. The object moved in a slow and gliding motion towards the west and slightly northwest. At first I thought it might be a plane, but it had no flashing red and green wingtip lights and no sound. Also the lights didn’t look like a helicopter and again there was no sound and it had that gliding motion. I lost it behind the trees, it was that low and then caught a glimpse of it again further away and more to the west and slightly northwest but then lost it again behind the buildings.
I did not see it emerge from behind the buildings so it may have turned more northerly or it may have descended even further. I went back into my workplace. The entire sighting took no more than 2 minutes I would guess…maybe 3 tops.
