Amber Colored Lights In The Sky Over Northeast Tucson Arizona
Date: January 1, 2013 Time: Approx: 1:00 a.m.
Brian, my wife and I went outside last night at midnight to see if any neighbors were setting off fireworks to celebrate the start of 2013. What we saw instead was incredible. A bright, solid amber ball, almost hovering, began to move across the sky from south to north.
It moved very slowly and at an altitude much lower than a normal air plane would travel. Within a couple of minutes, two more similar light appeared and made a loose triangular pattern.
They continued north slowly but the balls traveled at different speeds because the triangle began to lose its shape. Eventually, the lights seemed to go straight up into the sky because they became dimmer and dimmer until they disappeared.
After a minute or two, the three balls reappeared close to the mountains near Reddington Pass in the far northeast part of the city.
At this point, they were about 5 miles away from me and they seemed even lower to the ground. After about a minute, the three rose into the sky until they disappeared again.
My wife and I were positive that we would see something about this on the news today or see an internet posting but there is nothing. She and I are positive that this was not an airplane or helicopter.
The balls moved too slowly and made no noise at all. Oddly, 30 minutes or so after the sighting, several helicopters did fly over our house in the direction where we last saw the lights, this was probably around 1:00 a.m.
Please let me know if you've heard of any other sighting in Tucson last night. The fact that I can find no other accounts of this activity has me baffled. By the way, my wife and I did not imbibe on this New Years Eve, so we were completely sober during this incident.
If you have seen anything like this in the same area please be kind enough to contact Brian Vike at: firstname.lastname@example.org with the details of your sighting. All personal information is kept confidential.
Also, please feel free to send in your sightings that have happened years ago. So many of these older sightings are nothing short of amazing.
