Posted: 4/17/2008
Location: Surprise, AZ
Shape: Light
Duration: 50 seconds
Characteristics: There were aircraft in the vicinity or aircraft chasing the object
Looked like double the brightness of other stars in between the last 2 stars in big dipper.

I would like to report a sighting last night at about 9:45pm over Surprise AZ.

What looked like a star in the big dipper that was twice as bright as the other stars stayed solid and did not move for about 20 seconds. Then it began to slowly move back and forth then smoothly slide off to the right and went dark at the same time moving east, just 10 minutes earlier I saw a Solid white "star" blinking off and on every 5 seconds seen in the northwest sky moving left to right, did not have the normal red and green lights of a normal aircraft, I thought it could have been a satellite rotating reflecting the light of the sun on it's solar panels that had set hours earlier.

If you have any questions I would gladly answer them because there are certain details that are hard to put in writing.

Thank you ((name deleted)) Surprise AZ.
