Unusually shaped object flying over North Scottsdale.

North Scottsdale, Arizona. My wife and I had been observing the night sky and noticed something strange. The object was flying from South to North. We observed the object for about 20 seconds as we watched from the central courtyard of our house; the house prevented us from viewing any longer.

I’ve seen the international space station fly over before and this was most definitely not the same viewing experience.

This object seemed to be in the normal flight path, however, no visible navigation lights and the object was dimly lit, almost bluish. It was cauliflower shaped and seemed to be tumbling end over end.

Approximate altitude was 10-12,000 feet.

My wife and I have over 60 years of combined (military and civilian) aviation experience and have not seen anything like this before.
