Further Description of Sighting: All the neighbor dogs were barking and it woke me up. I looked out the kitchen door to see what they were barking about.
It was very cloudy out and I saw what I thought was the moon coming thru the clouds. After it came out, the dogs stopped barking. I saw it hover just under the clouds over my neighbors house (there were no trees so I had a direct view). I was mesmorized by it and stepped out on the patio to get a better look….It was silent and kept jarting back and forth into the clouds.
It looked like a bright disc shapped object. Once I was outside, I saw another bright light coming thru the clouds. I wanted to run in and tell my parents, but at the same time was intrigued by what it was going to do next. I felt frozen as I watched it dart back and forth several times. After a few minutes, it jarted back into the clouds with lightening speed and both lights disappeared. I’ve never seen anything move so fast) It reminded me of a hummingbird.
I went inside and told my mom to come out and what I saw. She stood outside with me for about 20 minutes, but it did not come back. I called the UFO hotline and the police came to take the report. They told me that a couple of police officers followed a UFO over to the state line before they lost it. They publicized in the Alliance newspaper the next day, along with others who had seen it also.
The HS Band Teacher saw one also. I live in Phoenix now and have heard about the 5 lights over phoenix. It has happened twice now. I have not seen them.
