Location: Phoenix, AZ
Characteristics: There were lights on the object, The object changed color
|Bright flickering multi-colored lights surrounded by 4 arms.
The object I saw was in the SW sky over Phoenix, AZ, but it could have been very far off, possibly over the Pacific Ocean, even.
The object, seen with the naked eye, appears to be simply a flickering multi-colored object. At first, I thought it to be a plane approaching the airport, or possibly the light from a nova many light-years away, whose light was just now reaching Earth.
But when I looked at it with a pair of binoculars with my arm braced against the patio door to minimize movement and was able to focus on it, I realized it was not moving.
The object appeared through the glasses (red lenses for night viewing, no distortion) to consist of a center with 4 arms extending from it, like a cross. The center was where the flickering colored lights appeared.
The colors changed rapidly but I was able to discern at least red, blue, green and either yellow or white. The features of the Ďarmsí appeared to be diamond or asterisk shaped, 4 to an arm.
