Location of Sighting: Apache Junction, Arizona
Date of Sighting: April 10, 2019
Time of Sighting: 6 PM MST
Description: A bright white light, larger than any planet or star, appeared against the blue evening sky before any other planets or stars were observed. A partial moon was observed to the West. The object was brighter than the moon. It was a windy day, clouds were moving, but the object was motionless, stationary for over 20 minutes, with no movement and no other lights. I checked about 1/2 an hour later, after dark and the object was gone.
Note: No bright planets were visible at the time of the sighting. The object could have been a high altitude balloon, but as the witness pointed out it was quite windy and the object appeared stationary. It is also doubtful that the object could have been a weather balloon.
Update – August 22, 2019: Analysis of radar data from Phoenix Sky Harbor Airport indicates that the witnesses saw craft from a military high altitude operation.Note to Commenters: If you are reporting a sighting, be sure to include the location (city, state, country), date and time of your sighting.
