UFO Sighting Report - USA
December 14th 2006 : Tucson, Arizona
Location: Tucson, AZ, USA
Date: Thursday, December 14, 2006 6:35 PM MST
Approach Direction: West Northwest
Departure Direction: East
Witness Direction: Northeast
Description: About 15 degrees above the easter horizon, a moving green light caught my attention. It seemed to emerge from clouds, although it ws not cloudy in that direction. The light was bright green, unlike any aircraft light, and had a very small white light immediately behind, moving as if attached. It seemed to turn abruptly at the same relative altitude due south and then east before disappearing. The entire event lasted less than 10 seconds.
Color/Shape: The apparent speed was remarkable, in that it seemed slower as it passed from north to south than when it was approaching or departing. It seemd much faster then.
Height & Speed: Canot guess on speed, but faster than the commercial aircraft that travel toward the area from the approach direction. Altitude guess: Approx 10,000 ft. ASL, about 7500 ft. over terrain.
TV/Radio/Press: Could not find any similar report.
