Location: Phoenix, AZ
Shape: Cigar
Characteristics: There were lights on the object
The object was cigar/pencil shaped, and was glowing yellow with what appeared to be a line of discrete solid yellow lights.

At the date and time indicated above I saw a cigar shaped object in the night sky around 7:30 pm. It was fully illuminated in yellow. It moved silently about 45 degrees from the horizon and moving east northeast at about a 15 degree climb. It was only a few seconds that I saw it. No time to grab a camera. It seemed to nose up and then faded out completely and disappeared. It was like nothing Iíve ever seen before. This is in Phoenix AZ, and was over a Sky Harbor Airport flight path, so maybe was caught on radar? I was in the military and recently retired as an engineer. It was not a conventional aircraft, flare, helicopter, meteor, kit. It was a cloudless, clear, still evening and no lightning was present. the object was totally silent, and moved in a deliberate steady trajectory. When it disappeared, the lights seemed to 'dissolve' into nothing. I was in my backyard and just happened to look up and see it. There was no time to grab a camera.
