Tonight, as I was getting ready to go to the store at 8:20pm and was backing out of my garage, I noticed three lights in the sky to the East of me. I did not think much about them at first, because the direction that they were coming from coincides with normal flight paths of jetliners that come to the valley.

I continued backing, and then thought that they were close together and brighter than normal plane lights that I have seen. So I took another look. To my surprise, there were now four lights. So, I got out of my vehicle, and took a better look.

The lights were close together and were in a diamond formation. Then, the one on the right began making aerial maneuvers that were not like any plane that I have ever witnessed. It started spiraling and going up and then down, and then almost looked like some sort of pinwheel motion. Then, all four lights, turned north and the one that was spiraling disappeared.

I found this to be strange, so I headed into the house to get my wife. As I was about to enter the garage, I looked back, and all four had disappeared. When my Wife came out there was nothing there, and I looked like I had been hallucinating.

Now, I know what I saw. The were not planes. There were no blinking lights, and they were a solid stripe-like light, rather then a nose light and tail lights. They were one big illumination.

So, before I start thinking I imagined the whole thing, what do people think this was? Did any other Valley residents witness this?

OK, thanks for reading, and have a good night!

P.S. No, I did not have time to pull out my cell phone. I was more amazed as to what it was, and was not thinking of recording it. When I came back out with my wife, I was going to record. However, the lights were nowhere to be seen.

The planes landed...that's why they weren't still visible.

Also, local news doesn't have any reported sighting that I know of (was watching KPNX local news).

Nothing showing as breaking news on azcentral.com.

My guess? Normal holiday air traffic.

There is restricted airspace over where you live? Wow, I'm impressed.

The airport is south or my house by miles (north phoenix)....but I still get a ton of air traffic over it. Funny how that happens over a busy major metropolis.

If you are in Gilbert, the Phoenix Mesa Gateway Airport is east of you....on Power road and the SanTan

Not to mention the Chandler airport south of you on Queen Creek and McQueen.

Given the area, are you certain it is not these fine folk?

No restricted airspace. When I replied, your post only said that the plane had landed. However, unless it crash landed, it did not land mid air.

The military is conducting flight training in the area.
I think it lasts all month long I had seen some sweet looking jets flying east of Queen Creek.

It very well could be. If they were using a flare and it went out, that would explain it.

There has been an increase of fighter jets taking off from Gateway. Also to consider is the bad weather we are having which is making the approach landings start off much lower. I won't tell you what you seen but today I have seen a blackhawk flying low towards Gateway like I usually do each day and at least two times today,(last was dark-thirty) twin fighter jets taking of towards Tucson.

I have not witnessed a fighter jet at night.. do they glow? I know they are very noisy, and there was not any noise.

Seems like when ever someone tells their story of what they have seen in the sky or experienced, immediately they are shot down and trying hard to debunk what that person has seen! Sometimes there are simple explanations. But, sometimes it is what it is, a Unidentified Flying Object!!!

The Arizona Skyhawks shown in Thorneblood's post were scheduled at the San Tan event but not until 8:45.

Still searching for current news on the San Tan Balloon Glow.

I am thinking that is has to have been these people. That would be the only rational explanation. I still cannot explain the strange maneuvers that one made, even if it was part of this show. But all evidence points to it being part of it.
