Duration: 5 min. approx.
No of observers: 4

Location: Phoenix, AZ, USA

Shape: Chevron
Characteristics: Lights on object

An object, consisting of 5 lights, in the shape of an arrow, flew right over my house.

I was on my way to the store, when I looked up and saw 5 white lights, appearing to be equally spaced, in the shape of a wide arrowhead. The lights were coming over a mountain, to the north of my house, that is used for hang gliding. That was my first thought, a hang glider strung with lights. But the lights were bright enough to show that they were not attached to a hang glider frame. A friend was coming to my house the same time I was leaving, so I pointed the lights out to him. On my way to the store, I noticed my neighbers outside also watching the lights. I stopped to talk to them about it, and we all came to the conclusion that what we were seeing was a UFO. The object didn't emit any sound, and flew from north to south. I first noticed it above Shaw Butte Mountain (15th Ave. and Cholla) and last saw it around 13th Ave. and Mercer Lane. The store trip took me 10 minutes, max. I drove around a little, looking for the mysterious lights, but they were nowhere to be found.
