Location: Kingman, AZ
Shape: Other
Duration:15-20 minutes
Appearance as a Very Bright Star with the naked eye, BUT… With 8-52x60mm W/52x Zoom Field Glasses, Please see my discription.

We just finished up doing yard work, & was about to go in the house. I happened to glance up to notice a passing jet airliner @ 8:20 pm. The sun had just went down behind the mountains so it was still real bright out yet.

Just up higher & further out to the west of the jet looked like a very bright star to the naked eye.

(I'm guessing the jet was heading to Los Angeles by its heading. I'm located 20 miles east of Kingman, Az, on Hwy. 66.) But it was way too bright outside for ANY stars to show.

I told my wife to quick grab my field glasses! (We both saw the star) As I looked at the star with my field glasses, and zoomed in on the star, it was very apparent this is no star.

This is the hard part... It had no wings, No distinguishable exhaust, just stationary.

It glowed as the appearance of the night time moon, but its still very light out, so I guess it was reflecting the sun light. The weird part is, when I zoomed in and focused in on it, it appeared like two 1/2 moons one in front of the other, in other words, picture a 1/2 moon, but then another 1/2 but smaller moon in front of the larger 1/2.

Now these were not moons, I have no idea what I was observing just sitting there up in the air not moving.

I wonder if the jet that was heading West/Southwest saw it? Or anybody else for that matter.

This object does not appear to fit any known UFO sightings I ever heard of?? Any ideas out there? This was not a balloon of any type either.

Very Strange.
