Multi-light UFO hovers N of Prescott Valley, AZ, for a couple of hours.

My friend and I were sitting out back, facing east. The moon had come up over the mountain about 10 minutes previous. My friend looked north and said, "What's that?" Low on the horizon was a moving light.

I told him it was a plane (Prescott Airport is behind our location, so they are not uncommon). He said not that one, and pointed to a light above the rooftops in the distance.

As we watched, it seemed to bob and drift slightly like someone's hobby drone. I managed to get and extreme zoom steady picture (which had to be greatly enlarged on my pc). It appeared to have 6 red lights and 2 blue/green. It seemed to be changing colors, but it was a distance. On one photo where I moved, it appears as a multicolored streak, showing the different colors.

Thinking it was someone's drone, I forgot about it. A couple of hours later I went out to look at the stars before going to bed. It was still there, just higher in the sky.

I sent photos to a professor at Embry Riddle Aeronautic University in Prescott. I knew that they had a UAV program. He eventually got back to me and said no body there claims it.

I just figured it was military. Watching "Hanger One" made me think of reporting it.

I sent photos to the local paper to see if anyone else saw it. They just called to verify I sent them.
