UFO SIGHTING – Monday, April 24, 2006
Approximately 11:30 p.m. (rough estimate)
Location: Between Wikieup, AZ and Wickenburg, AZ
Driving south on Highway 93 headed to Phoenix. Two-lane, remote road; fairly sparse traffic at the time. Clear, dark skies away from the city.
• Terrain directly in front of me (viewing through windshield of suv)—flat; no mountains; no obstructions. Straight ahead of me and at about the top of my viewing area (the windshield) appeared two quite bright white lights. Could not judge distance or altitude; but both appeared to be quite extensive. The lights would flash very brightly and then dim (to nothing, they would then disappear). It appeared that one would flash and the other would dim. They were fairly close to each other during this ritual; which I observed for only maybe 30 to 60 seconds. I assume things definitely could and probably were happening prior to my viewing; but I was not tuned in in that direction. This very bright light when it flared up was very large in the sky; perhaps half the size of a full moon and on the intensity level of a floodlight. My first thought was that they were airplanes and it scared me because their paths seemed to close. It quickly became apparent that their appearance and behaviour was nothing like airplanes. Their paths seemed like one might even be crossing the other; and if this was the case then they would probably have been circling each other. Again, they did not beam at the same time, but one and then the other. My husband saw the end of this scene just described; but certainly enough to confirm what occurred and get his full attention. Right after he observed this also, they both went on disappear mode and but for the stars the sky was black. During the next 10-15 minutes, it appeared there was nothing at all untoward; except 3 or 4 times one of them would briefly flare brightly and immediately go on disappear mode—IN THE SAME EXACT LOCATION AS THE INITIAL VIEWING. Only one would flare up during these instances. Then, after these intermittent flashes, one of the ships went on a dim mode (for the first time—the previous modes had just been extremely bright and completely dark). The dim lights flashed at about the intensity of an ordinary airplane’s lights. This was the craft on the east side and it then took off with dim, blinking lights at an incredible pace across the sky and was quickly gone on an eastern trajectory. Approximately 30-60 seconds later, the craft on the west side repeated this exactly heading off and quickly disappearing on a southwest trajectory. This was the end of the incident.
Can sighting be explained as any conventional man-made or natural object?
assist husband who is traveling salesman--with a background in science and very analytical thought processes.
my background is secretarial.
Views on UFOs, before and after sighting
Do not believe in UFO's. Have always attributed them to some logical explanation--military, etc. Have heard of the usual famous reports.
