Sighting Reports 2008

Man Sees Orange Orb Display Pattern of Hovering & Rapid Movement

Date of Sighting: April 15, 2008
Time of Sighting: 11:15 PM MST
Date Sighting Reported: April 18, 2008
Duration of Sighting: Less Than One Minute
Location of Sighting: Chandler, Arizona (Suburb to the Southeast of Phoenix)
Latitude: 33.32 Degrees North
Longitude: 111.81 Degrees West
Number of Witnesses: One
Weather: Partly Cloudy (Broken Clouds Were at 25,000 Feet). Visibility Was 10 Miles. Winds Were From the West-Southwest at 12 MPH.

Description: I got out of work and was standing outside for my wife to pick me up at about 11:15 at night. An object caught my eye in the south about a mile or so away. It was about as high as a plane and was orange and glowing. The object did not move and looked wavy like hot asphalt or lava, but was a perfect orb. After looking at it for a few seconds it suddenly sped off in a straight line crossing overhead and then all of a sudden coming to an immediate stop again. The object's speed was alarming, much faster then anything I have ever seen. It sat again motionless for about 2 seconds and then proceeded to speed off again at a 90 degree angle and stop again. Again the object sat hovering for about 2 more seconds, and then the object shot off alarmingly fast out into the sky at about a 45 degree angle up. From a dead stop it accelerated out of view in less than a second.

Comments: I know of no conventional aircraft that could execute the maneuvers observed by the witness.
