Location: Cottonwood, AZ
Shape: Light
Duration:7 minutes
Red, white blue flashing lights

Last night I think I saw my fist UFO. I drew a photo of it as I did not take a photo, just too stunned i guess. It was there a good 7 mins.

I live in Cottonwood AZ, it was towards Sedona area. What caught my eye was the red, white and blue flashing lights in the sky at first, then I saw 3 lights in the middle that looked like stars but a perfect straight line right in the middle and in the front, or may back an amber light.

It stayed stationary the whole time then just faded, did not move sideways, forward or backwards, just gone! It was a clear night. This thing was huge. About the size of 20 plane spans, hard to say, but huge. My attachment is my terrible drawing of what I saw. I would love to know if anybody else reported anything on 10/21/13, I don't know what time it was, around 12, 1:30 am.


Thank you for the phone call, it was about 7 minutes long and then just the lights just went out/vanished. I heard no noise but I am hard of hearing.

There were no stars in the sky but it was a full moon. From tip of red blue red flashing lights to other tips of red, blue red flashing lights I would say you could fit 6 moons in that space.

The lights themselves were small, red white and blue, were fingertip size. The amber light was a little larger thumb size. The 3 white lights, middle one bigger same size as amber light top and bottom not as bright. At first I thought it was Orion, but I sit outside every night and there were no visible stars anywhere, also these lights were brighter. All lights went out at the same time.

Very strange experience.
