Mesa, Arizona White Orb And Another Strange Object

Date: July 30, 2004
Time: 3:35 a.m.

Number of witnesses: 2
Number of objects: 2
Shape of objects: One round (orb), and the other was shaped like an infinity symbol.

Full Description of event/sighting: I arrived home from work at approx 0335 and upon getting out of my car, was stunned by a luminous white orb approx 1.5 miles and hovering still at I would say about 2000-3000 feet in the air. Naturally I questioned my senses and thought this must be a star, but, when compared to every other star in the sky, I would estimate that this object was at least 15X brighter and 10X the size of anything else visible. Continuing to question my observation, I went into my house and insisted my roommate take a look at it. We went back out and while wondering what this was, my roommate exclaimed, "FORGET THIS THING, WHAT THE HECK IS THAT THING TO THE LEFT?"

To our shock, we saw to the east of the white orb (directly NE from my position) and much lower altitude (500-1000 ft?) what appeared to be a much brighter (10X the white orb, lighting up the sky) white object shaped somewhat like an infinity symbol with a pulsing yellow light spinning rapidly around what would be the equator of the object. We were now questioning our sanity. We watched this spinning object for about a minute then suddenly, all at once the object dimmed down to a single white point of light with a red hue and began moving to the NW of it's original position. We then lost sight of it over houses. The white orb remained in it's original position. I looked at this through binoculars and could determine that it was round in shape and definitely not a star. The light it was emitting was quite bright, but not like a spotlight. The quality of light was very much like a bright white LED. Imagine a white LED as big around as a hot air balloon hovering in the night sky. I'm glad to know that I have not gone mad, and that this was seen by others in the area. Something strange is going on over the Valley of the Sun. Something very strange, indeed.

Thank you to the witness for the report.
