Posted: 7/19/2010
Location: Tempe, AZ
Shape: Unknown
Duration: 45 mins.
Characteristics: There were lights on the object
globes of light in sky over tempe arizona, moving in a quickly repeating pattern but staying in one area.

My husband and I were outside on our deck we watched white lights in a cloud in the sky. There were maybe six or more. When the cloud moved off, we couldn't see anything. As soon as there was cloud cover again, in the same spot, the lights returned.

At first the lights moved quickly but randomly, never out of the cloud area that we could see. Then they started a pattern, like an x or a cross pattern. They would meet in the middle like a bump, then back out to edge of clouds then around edge to return to center over and over. They moved very quickly but stayed in same spot in the sky. There was no noise at all. This lasted quite awhile, off and on again, for maybe an hour. Then when the sky had no more clouds and we couldn't see anything more and went inside.
