Shape: Sphere
Duration:30 seconds
This was a brief encounter on a clear night. The silence of the passing of the object is what struck me the most.

The object was a BRIGHT round white glowing sphere with no other observable lights or colors. Estimated altitude was about 1000 to 1500 feet making the object about twenty feet in diameter. There was no engine noise as the object sped from east to west overhead in a straight trajectory. This would have put the object just over E. Bethany Home Road (Phoenix, AZ) as it headed west.

I had contacted the Phoenix PD and the dispatcher’s words were: "I’m not sure what you saw but I’ve been getting calls from all over the city about it." Luke AFB had no comment.

A little about me: I’m ex-military and was a jumper for the Army Parachute in West Germany in the early 80’s and had jumped from and flew in a number of aircraft through the years. This wasn’t ours!
