I've been meaning to post this for a while now but haven't got around to it. I'll just get right into the details. On February 20th starting at
5:28 PM, I was looking out of my office window towards Camel back Mountain & saw 5 black objects floating in place. This is the first picture I took
of them (drive.google.com...
). They were moving incredibly slow. So slow that you couldn't really
notice the movement just by looking at them, it was only apparent in looking at the subsequent photos & comparing the configurations. These objects
would move side to side, up and down, and eventually one by one, they would descend behind the mountain and out of sight. The first to disappear was
the one on the very right of the mountain (as seen in the first picture). The objects on the left would soon follow. After the objects on the left
disappeared, the object on the right reappeared again for some time, before it too descended behind the mountain again. The final photo
) I took, which was the remaining object on the right hand side, was taken at 5:52
I'll post the photos I took in chronological order so you can see the changes in configuration, but first I'd like to show a photo of a map so you
can understand the distances we're dealing with here. Here's a screenshot from google earth
) showing my point of view & where the objects were estimated to be. I had put the
marker of the sighting at the top of the mountain, however keep in mind these objects descended *behind* the mountain, so the exact distance is an
approximation. The viewing distance is approximately 6.65 miles. If anybody knows a way to estimate the size of these objects based on this
information along with the photos, please comment below! I didn't get the feeling that these were drones based on the movement profile, along with
just how far away they were. I don't imagine a drone would look this way at this distance, but I could be wrong. That evening, I was unsure. However
the next morning I saw something that had me far more convinced that what I saw was truly unidentified. More on that later. First, the photos of the
objects in chronological order.
5:50 PM (at this point the two on the left had descended out of sight, and the one on the right came
I don't remember when the last one on the right disappeared, but it was soon after the final picture I took.
So after this whole ordeal, I didn't quite know what to make of these objects. I'm not claiming these objects to be of alien origin or anything, but
I simply had no idea what I was looking at. At the time, I was leaning towards the idea that it had to be man made of some kind, perhaps drones, but I
was doubtful. The next morning however changed that calculus. I was driving into work, and while at the tail end of my journey, I look to my left
towards the sky. What do I see? ANOTHER one of these black objects. *It looked exactly the same as the evening before*. Here's the map with some
crudely drawn arrows to illustrate.(drive.google.com...
) The black arrow is the direction I was
looking, and the red arrow is the direction the object was travelling. The way the object was travelling was very strange to me. It was going quite
fast, and one thing that stuck out to me is how incredibly *smooth* it was moving. Just slicing through the air like butter. Luckily I was able to
snag a picture, although it was difficult given that I was driving about 50 MPH. It's hard to see as I was unable to zoom much when I took the
) but you can clearly see the black speck if you zoom into the picture
(almost dead center). This was taken at 8:40 AM.
When looking at the picture on my phone, I zoomed in as far as I could on the object and took a screenshot. I then did the same with the photo of one
of the objects from the night before. I then merged the pictures to compare the
), and was shocked to see how identical they both look. The left picture is from
the night before, the right is from the next morning.
So, what do you think? As I said before, I make no claims as to what exactly it is that I saw. I can say that I've never seen anything like this, and
to see presumably the same type of object the next morning has me completely baffled. I was showing this to a friend, and they had mentioned reports
of very loud booms along with lights in the sky being made in Yavapai County(drive.google.com...
two days prior to my sighting, on February 18th (see news article about this
)). As you can see in the map I linked, Yavapai is
directly in line of the viewing angle from where I originally saw the objects (although quite far away).
Interested to hear your thoughts, and if anybody else saw any objects around the same time!
(Here's a link to the album with all the photos(drive.google.com...
) if anyone's interested. They are
in chronological order, and the time I took each photo is in the description).
