Sighting Reports 2009

Object Moves W & Changes Direction to N. Military Jets Approach

Date of Sighting: May 24, 2009
Time of Sighting: 9 PM MST
Location of Sighting: Surprise, Arizona (Just West of Phoenix)

Description: I was laying in my hammock in the backyard. I live out in Surprise, Az on the West side of Phoenix, AZ. It was around 9 PM when I noticed an object that looked like a satellite in the Southern sky heading West. I could also see airplanes much lower as well. The object turned and headed North very quickly and then I saw a bright flash like the sky unzipped and it was GONE. Air Force jets from Luke Air Force Base were also flying around at much lower altitudes. We don't usually hear jets that late at night. Maybe it was just evening military exercises?

Note: The witness's hunch that the light may have been part of military exercises may be correct. I don't have a better explanation. For some reason the witness waited several months before reporting the sighting. (Sometimes witnesses report older sightings when they read about UFO events, see UFO documentaries on TV, etc.)
