Location: Scottsdale, AZ
Shape: Light
Duration:45 seconds
Bluish/purple light moving horizontally and vertically over East Scottsdale.

From Scottsdale (Shea and 101 area) facing east-a bluish / light purple light was hovering in the sky about 3 miles out - the light did not flicker, did not blink, did not get brighter or dimmer.

The light was moving in a right to left and left to right direction, occasionally moving up and down. This movement CANNOT be created by an airplane, helicopter, a balloon or even a flare burning out. This was moving at a casual pace which never really moved more than 5 degrees from my plane of sight.

It took about 45 seconds to finally fall behind a tree and then came out of the left side of the tree and started heading down again. There was a plane heading towards it and you can see the planes lights flashing while the other light did not change.

It fell behind the treeline and disappeared.
