Duration: 15 minutes
Characteristics: There were lights on the object, The object changed color
Circle of lights seen two nights in a row

First saw this shape with a light pattern on 5/2/18 at the same time of day. Was able to focus a telescope on it for about 2 minutes before it vanished.

On 5/3/18, I saw it again. Sky is clear. No moon yet. I observed it for the full duration through the telescope. There is a very definitive and intricate pattern to the lights. It was also moving very slowly as I had to keep adjusting the scope.

I was able to record approximately 20 seconds of video and got one decent picture using an iPhone.

From the north end of Bullhead City and just east of the airport, the scope is aimed to 300 degrees and 4 degrees up from horizontal.

The light pattern has been visible the last two nights. Without moving the scope from last night’s viewing, I looked through it this morning and all I could see was clear sky.
