So, I was on my way back home from town today, and my girlfriend pointed something out in the sky. From afar, it looked almost like a glowing white
bell-shaped object. I told my girlfriend to take pictures of it so I could inspect it further once we got home, and so she did.
Upon looking at the pictures, the object really doesn't look much like the object we saw. All of the 'detail' of the objects shape is gone, and now
it looks more like a roundish-shaped orb, but in person, the object had much more definition.
These pictures were taken about an hour ago, between 7:32 and 7:49 PM MST 5-18-2009.
I was heading north on the 95 from Lake Havasu City towards the I-40 at around 60-70 mph.
The object appeared stationary in the air, sitting maybe 2000-5000 feet above Earth. I would estimate it to be about 2-3 miles northeast of the road,
and in an ~8 minute period of viewing the object, it did not appear to move whatsoever.
The area it was hovering over is un-inhabited for the most part, although there is a small sections of rural homes about a mile south of where the
Here is a link to a Google Map of the approximate location:
And here is a link to 3 of the images I took: img507.imageshack.us...
The images are un-edited and in original size. I have a few more if anyone would like them, just let me know and I will upload them.
So, my question is, what do you think this thing is?
When I was a child (about 17 years ago) I saw a UFO while camping in the desert. Me, my mother, and my aunt were sitting on a dock on the Colorado
river fishing at about 3am, and we saw an "object" off in the distance that would hover a few miles above the Earth, then shoot across the sky at a
speed I have never seen, then stop immediately, hover, and shoot in another direction. It shifted directions maybe 3-5 times before it finally shot
"upwards and away" in a literal blink of an eye.
Judging from that experience, I'm not quite sure this is a "UFO" per-se, but it sure was weird. I also had 2 others in the car with me who also
witnessed the object, one of them my girlfriend whom said "You see that right? I'm not crazy, right?"
