Location: Yuma, AZ
Shape: Disk
Duration: ~ 1 hour
Characteristics: There were aircraft in the vicinity or aircraft chasing the object
Disc object over Yuma, AZ and BIG red object seen from airplane.

My co-worker and I were driving on business from Phoenix,AZ to Yuma,AZ on HWY 8 going west/southwest. Through most of the trip we are talking about UFO's and supernatural programs on the History Channel. I can admit that I was looking everywhere to see if I saw something unusual in the skies, since I know Arizona has a high volume of sightings.

All of the sudden we see an old airplane maneuvering north of us near Yuma,AZ. It doesn't look military; it just looks like someone is playing around. All of the sudden I look further behind the airplane and I notice something just sitting there in the sky.

It was pretty far away and we could not tell what it was. The objects were in a disk shape and white metallic color. The object was pretty bright for a clear sunny day. We pulled over to see if I can take good pictures of it. My co-worker mentions of rotation on the object, but I could not see it. The object stayed in the same spot for quite a long time and barely moved. It looked like it would grow slightly in size and go back to the original size. We could even see the object entering Yuma. That same night there was a high activity of black helicopters near the MX and AZ border. I do not know if it was the Border Patrols or the black helicopters that I've heard try to chase UFO's. This event happened on December 11, 2006 and pictures will be e-mailed. I also noticed that some of my pictures are similar to the pictures that a person from Argentina submitted on the 25th of December in main page.

(ANOTHER sighting that happened in October 20006. Unfortunately, no pictures were taken. SEE BELOW.) I was flying from Dallas to California on a business trip. Something up to the date of this event told me to have my camera in hand during the flight which I unfortunately didn't. We are over 30,000 probably over New Mexico or Arizona, not sure. Clear bright day. All of the sudden I see that a big red round object is floating in the air about 2:00 and about 500 feet down in relation of the airplane. My first instinct was that this object was not suppose to be there. It looked like a giant bowie (sp). As we are flying by it I noticed that on the other side there was this metallic object attached to the object. I looked around the airplane to see if anyone hesitated, but no one seemed to see it except me. I researched weather balloons and this thing was at least 10x bigger than the weather balloon pictures that I googled. Also, in my opinion, a balloon will probably not be floating over 30,000 in the skies. I'm still kicking myself today because I did not have a camera with me.
