Round object just hovering over homes.

Two days prior to my 9/11/2001 sighting, I saw a round object flying very high in the southern skies over Arizona. On 9/11/2001 at approximately 20:30 I was walking my two dogs. There were no airplanes flying this day because of the terrorist attack, except for military jets from Luke Air Force base. I just came around the corner and between two homes I saw a bright light coming toward the homes in front of me. I thought it was the police helicopter flying with their search light on. I watched the light get closer to me and there it was just hovering over the neighborhood homes. It was just there, no sound coming from it at all. The two dogs never reacted to this object. It hovered for just a few minutes and then it took off, straight up and the started to head west. This is exactly what I had seen in the sky two days earlier.

The most interesting thing was the lack of noise or any sound coming from this object. The speed of it taking off was incredible.

I have not reported this to any authority because I did not want any repercussions to this. I have told several people since and I just get that look of disbelief.
