Anyway, it was just after sunset, or so it seemed,
They were more like a yellow, old school street lamp as it looks through a rainy fog,
We watched this thing move all across the city for about 20 - 25 minutes in total, just like we did when they were too far away to judge, but still visible.
The lights still appeared as if they were under that same fog, the same thickness, but from a further distance.

I am leaning toward their sighting taking place at the earlier time, because they mentioned the sun had just started to set. That time of year in Arizona, isn't sunset around 8ish o'clock?
Apparently the "real" sighting took place during dusk. The lights in the famous photo were actually flares taken hours later. That is what I heard.edit on 10-1-2013 by canucks555 because: (no reason given)

The sun was already behind the horizon and the sky was nearly blackened. It was surely during the 8 o'clock hour as thats when we usually left my aunts to go back to the base. I am sure Mike or myself could probably reference the almanacs for AZ that day, if he hasn't already.
it was at least 5,000 feet up and massive, in the shape of a V made out of lights.

Thanks Fenix for doing this.
I remember hearing from a youth witness who was in a P L's documentary. He said that the lights were like the shimmering you see off a hot road, like a mirage effect. I found this intriguing. Aswell some gentlemen indicated it was huge and could hold all our b-52 bombers on the wings.
I have often wondered how much contrast was there between the craft and the background sky when you saw it? Was a structured craft evident?
Many talk about the V formation of lights but fewer talk about the actual craft. Some said it was transparent. Can you shed some light on how obvious a craft was or was it just lights?
