Very Large Object.

On May 15 2010 we were on the back patio and observed an object at approximately 7:30 pm in the western skies from our home in Sun City. The object had multi colored lights not flashing on and off more that they were dimming and getting brighter and possibly looked as if they were rotating around the object.

We also observed many planes being routed over us coming from Phoenix Sky Harbor Airport that we do not normally see. We observed this object for about 45 minutes as it finally moved very slowly towards the west until we lost it on the horizon. As planes moved towards the object there was a white light that would emanate from the object towards the approaching plane. This beam of light was wide and was white and very dim not bright. The object seemed to be shaped to where it had a vertical section to a point and a larger mass at its center where most of the lights were at. The object was in the direction of Luke AFB from our position.
