Date of Sighting: January 20, 2011
Time of Sighting: 10 to 10:30 PM MST
Location of Sighting: Tempe, Arizona (See Map)

Description: This bright, flashing light caught my eye through my apartment window and when it disappeared, then reappeared I got my camera and zoomed in. This is what I got. Hopefully the photo can be of use.
As of details it was between 10 and 10:30 PM Arizona time. I live in Tempe, Arizona. the object appeared to be around Sky Harbor Airport. I at first assumed it was a plane, but it went up and down then back up. It was in the air for awhile and then it headed to the south of the airport. Then all the sudden it was in the sky again. I could tell it wasn't a plane, so I got my camera. I am not sure if it's anything, but its definitely unlike anything I have seen.

Feel free to contact me with further info.

Note: Analysis indicates that the photo is the original unedited photo as output from the camera. The photo was taken with a Canon PowerShot SX20 IS digital camera. This is a high resolution camera with a maximum size of 12.1 megapixels.

Comments Received From Corrections Officer Who Also Saw the Lights:
Listen to Recording of Report (MP3)
The witness was transporting 2 inmates and noticed the lights. She said that the lights would "jump" and were seen to move quite erratically. She thought that this behavior was most unusual. In a conversation with this witness she stated that she saw the lights earlier (between 8:45 PM and 9 PM MST). She said that lights were arranged vertically rather than horizontally. The witness also said that the lights were in a different location (south of Sky Harbor Airport).
