Phoenix, Arizona Object Video Taped As Jet Flies Overhead.

Brian. How are ya? I saw something today that you may enjoy as much as I do. I taped the same (stepper UFO) object I did last week but this time it was directly over my house and I taped 10 more minutes with an interesting climax. There's 2 to 3 orbs. The main orb, or the one in front, is a golden-white color and seems to be the lead object. The other orbs are blueish-black and seem to be causing the tumbling motion you see. They are generally in the back of the white orb from where I am watching them and the seem to be moving but the white object seems to keep it in check or in control. That's what is causing the tumbling motion. That's my opinion.

We've had some monsoon activity and with the humidity there seems to be a thin haze in the sky. Maybe a few thousand feet high, maybe a little more. but no higher that 5000 ft. The object was moving from the South heading North about 5-10 MPH but pauses once in a while like it is getting its bearings straight and continues along in a general direction. Who knows why it pauses but that's what it does. I put the camera on the tripod and found it immediately, very visible. I moved out of the sun and under my porch to stay cool. Remember, I am in Az. it's already 96 degrees at 10:00 a.m.. And no, today it's not a dry heat thanks for asking. Anyway as I am taping this I let the object do it's thing and when it leaves the camera's screen I have to re-adjust the sight to start taping it again. After several minutes of doing this I am moving the camera to re-adjust when a plane comes out of nowhere and crosses the path of the object and that's what the clip is showing. The object never moves, that's me moving the camera to re-adjust and it just so happens that this plane was coming overhead without me knowing otherwise I wouldn't have moved.

Bad timing I guess but I am still happy with the sighting. The object never veers off course. That's me moving to adjust the camera. So I don't want anyone to think that the object was dodging the plane because it wasn't. I know that's what it looks like but it's not true. The plane was seemingly close to the object. A few minutes later the object disappeared into the thin haze and that's when I stopped taping. It's not balloons because balloons don't stop and go and if it's a weather experiment than why would you test your equipment where planes fly?

Anyway this was a good day, eh? Let me know what you think and thank you for everything.

Thank you to the fellow for the interesting footage and report.
