Summary : 6-8 lights were seen flying in formation s.of phoenix. They would cluster, form V shapes, inverted Vs, cluster in a stationary loation. They then travelled west doing the same manuvers a high rate of speed. Clear skies, no moon, temp. approx 85, calm winds. Seen also by someone else located 3 miles west of me. None traditional aircraft could only manuver like these did.

At approx. 21:50 on May 9, 1997, I was in my back yard located in south Phoenix. I observed 6-8 white round lights south of my location approx 3 miles at an altitude of approx. 10,000. The objects stayed in one place while they would cluster into such a tight formation that they appeared as one, then manuver into a V shape, inverted V shape, straight line and then back to a cluster. I went into my house and got my wife, 42 years old and two children 20 and 22 years to witness what I saw. We four watched the objects for approximately 2-3 minutes as they travelled west continuing to manuever into the aforementioned shapes until out of sight.I am a retired police officer, 47 years old. I have been trained to observe and report observations. This is the first such "sighting" myself and family have seen, however, I do believe in UPOs. I have trained as a pilot and have flown privately since 1968 and commercially since 1958. These objects were NOT conventional aircraft. I can be reached at my home at 602-((Number deleted)) in the evenings.
