I witnessed and filmed an oblong object moving in the sky with no noise, a large directional light and window.

On Friday 4.12.2024 at roughly 8:10PM PST, I was standing outside my home in rural NW Arizona. I tend to stargaze, try and catch satellites or track flights going overhead. In the distance a brighter than normal light was approaching me. It was pitch black out so the light stood out. My first thought was a helicopter or low flying aircraft but as this thing got closer, I realized it was generating no sound, had no nav lights and was coming right at me. I don’t think I could recreate the feeling I had when I realized I was looking at something I couldn’t explain. My mammal instincts kicked in and I took cover behind a shed and as quickly as I ducked for cover I immediately got my phone out…deep in my mind I knew no one would believe me if I told them what I saw.

I had a clear view. It was 8:10 PM PST and it had just become night. The light I witnessed was in front of an object and generated a large beam ahead of it, probably the width of the entire bow of the craft. Directly behind it was a shadow of what I could clearly see as an oblong shaped craft moving steadily through the sky above me. There was a rectangular “window” where I could clearly see inside…and I mean clearly. As it passed over, I stayed somewhat hidden, called my wife and sent her the video. Within seconds after calling her, 5-6 flashes of colorful light illuminated the sky above the mountains and the craft was gone.
