Location: Fountain Hills, AZ
Shape: Other
Duration:5 minutes
Observed flash in night sky at southern direction from 33 latitude and 111 longitude at 30-35 degree altitiude of bright (full moon) intensity of orangish color with yellowing tail of inverted cone shape.

Hovered about minut or so traveling west by southwest turning into no other description than a "star of Bethlehem" shape of yellowish color then turned into a satellite or star shaoe cirle travelling in south by southwest direction at a spped a little faster than observed airplanes observed that evening until out of eyesight.

Not very windy and in my mind, I have ruled out someone implementing a Cincinnati fire and a afterburn from a military jet or meteor.
