Date of Sighting: February 23, 2011
Time of Sighting: 11 PM MST
Location of Sighting: Glendale, Arizona

Description: I am a 34 white male full time college student and work full time so I am not completely crazy. Anyway there was just one light at first and when I was watching it was very apparent that it was impossible to be any man made flying object from the elevation and distance changes then a second one appeared and they seemed to circle each other and I did also see a line of lights at one time, but very briefly. I am very disappointed that the camera batteries were dead and I couldn't find any right away and my phone doesn't take video so I captured just a few minutes. I have checked local news and online and haven't heard of any other reports. In the video you can see the houses across the street and the lights go just above it. The horizon was clear enough with city lights to see that they were pretty distant and unusual.

Additional Information Supplied by Witness (In response to Questions): Hello. Ok so since I read your email it dawned on my that I was looking in the direction of an airport. I have lived at the same address for a couple years and I frequently stand in that area and smoke cigarettes because it's right out my garage door and I have never seen lights move like those. My address is in north Glendale and direction I was looking was southeast towards Sky Harbor Airport.

Note: The portion of footage captured certainly shows high strangeness. Fortunately the witness captured houses in the background so the motion of the lights (objects) can be determined. The footage clip at first shows one light which moves left to right, then abruptly reverses direction (right to left), then reverses direction again left to right and reverses direction again at which point it is joined by a second light. These two lights move together, pass one another, move away from each other and then move towards each other again. In the second report the witness states he was looking southeast in the direction of Sky Harbor Airport. However, I don't have any reason to believe that the lights were regular aircraft.

A check of weather conditions showed that skies were mostly cloudy with cloud base heights of 8,000 feet. Visibility was 10 miles. Given these weather conditions means that the lights were flying at or below 8,000 feet.
