UFO video shows lights over Goodyear, AZ

A witness recorded video of strange lights in the sky over Goodyear, Arizona on the night of February 2, 2015.

This witness noticed the unusual lights at approximately 9:15 p.m. He describes:

I saw this ufo while driving. It was moving south over the Estrella Mountains. The lights were a fiery color. What is not visible in the video is the shape of the craft and the massive size of it. After it disappeared we continued to drive in the direction it was headed, eventually driving behind the mountain but saw nothing.

Others in the Goodyear area saw the mysterious lights too. And local news station ABC15 even aired a story about the lights, commenting on how the event was reminiscent of the well-known Phoenix Lights UFO incident.

Open Minds‘ Alejandro Rojas informed ABC15 that these recent lights seen over the Estrellas “are believed to be flares dropped by the military.” So ABC15 checked with Luke Air Force Base officials “who confirm they were flying out at Goldwater Range on Tuesday night and that during training, they do drop flares.”

After seeing the ABC15 news report, the witness sent his video to Open Minds. And he asserts that what he observed “looked nothing like flares.” He also describes that the UFO “did not just vanish, it was moving and moved over the mountain at an angle.”

The original Phoenix Lights incident occurred on March 13, 1997–an incident that involved multiple mass UFO sightings. Although the mysterious events were officially blamed on flares, that explanation doesn’t fit with with witness testimony or even the timetable of events, leaving the incident an unsolved mystery.

Could disappearing Arizona house have been a UFO?

Arizona witnesses at Sierra Vista recalled events from 2012 when a rectangular object sitting in what had been an empty field disappeared by morning, according to September 29, 2014, testimony in Case 60151 from the Mutual UFO Network (MUFON) witness reporting database.

The reporting witness and her husband had stepped outside about 9:45 p.m. on a clear December night in 2012 before heading to bed when they noticed the object in a nearby field.

They thought it was odd they had not heard the sounds of something being moved onto the property and that the object appeared to have electricity. Pictured: Sierra Vista, Arizona. (Credit: Google)

“We were only out there about a minute before we noticed what appeared to us to be a single-wide mobile home or rectangular-shaped house in the field across the street,” the witness stated. “This field is totally fenced in and there has been nothing there for several years so we were surprised to see a house. We hadn’t heard anything during the day nor seen any movement /trucks bringing in a house.”

The witness described the object.

“There appeared to be a door with a window on each side. Lights were on but the house/object appeared to be empty. We sat there discussing how odd it was that we never saw it being moved in or how quickly electricity seemed to be hooked up but shook it off and went to bed.”

They were surprised the next morning.

“The next morning we got our coffee and went outside to have a smoke and the object was not in the field – there was nothing there. It was an empty, fenced-in field as it always was. We don’t know for sure what it was, but it was very, very odd. To this day every time we drive by we always look at the fencing to see how someone could have pulled in a trailer and there is no way.”

In the morning, they noticed that the object was gone and could not understand how something had gotten into the fenced-in field and out again by morning. Pictured: Sierra Vista, Arizona. (Credit: Google)

Arizona witness recalls saucer UFO low over drive-in movie

An Arizona witness at Yuma recalls events from 38 years ago when a UFO moved close to family members at a drive-in movie theater, according to testimony in Case 60102 from the Mutual UFO Network (MUFON) witness reporting center.

The witness was at the drive-in with her mother, stepbrother and young daughter when dim lights were seen in the sky in September 1976.

“I simply assumed the dim lit lights were that of the windows of a passenger airplane,” the witness stated. “At this point I couldn’t see its shape – just the lights.”

But the object wasn’t moving.

“After about 20 to 30 minutes of glancing at what I assumed were window lights, I realized this ‘plane’ was not moving nor was it making any sound and realized it was not a plane. I stood up in the bed of the truck and told those with me to look. I began pointing at it because they couldn’t see it. Its windows were too dim.”

Then the object moved closer.

“It was a very dark object, but the closer it moved the better I could see its shape. It looked as if it had a wide, huge bell on top of it. When I saw it almost over our truck, my mother and stepbrother still couldn’t see it. A lady in a car next to us began trying to see it. It moved upward, tilted and that is when I saw the brighter lights on the bottom of this object. I was almost screaming for them to see it!”

The witness first thought the object was a passenger plane until it seemed to hover in place. Pictured: Yuma, Arizona. (Credit: Google)

As the object moved away, it appeared to be a saucer shape.

“At that moment it began moving, wobbling, and began going upward with its shape changing into a typical saucer shape. My stepbrother saw it at this point and said, ‘I see it! Look!’ At that time it began flopping from one side to the other several times. With each flop it got smaller like it was moving away. We were both tying to get my mother to see it, and she did at the point just before it went away. It was gone in a breath but left twinkly sparkles behind it. It looked as if it had gone through a door and closed it.”

Witness records UFO over Lake Havasu City (VIDEO)

A witness captured video of a strange light in the sky over Lake Havasu City, Arizona on the evening of July 14, 2014.

The unidentified light hovers in the sky, then slowly descends into what the witness surmises is SARA Park in the southeastern park of the city. Although the witness states that the object changes color, that behavior is not apparent in the video.

Local paper Today’s News-Herald says that “no reports of alien activity or strange aircraft have been reported at SARA Park on July 13 or the following days.” But Dennis Freyermuth, chief investigator for the Phoenix Mutual UFO Network (MUFON) is investigating the sighting. The paper explains that Freyermuth could not confirm any aircraft activity in the area on the evening in question. And, unfortunately, he has not been able to locate any additional witnesses. Even the four witnesses who were present when the video was recorded have been “unavailable.”

Because no other witnesses reported the light in the sky, Freyermuth believes that, if others observed the UFO, they “knew what it was and paid no attention to it.”

“Right now I have no other supporting evidence other than this video clip and (the recorder’s) statements,” he told the paper. “I can’t come up with anything else to verify something unusual . . . Based on my observation it doesn’t look like an E.T. event.”

According to Freyermuth, Phoenix MUFON, which covers all of Arizona, typically receives fifteen to twenty-five UFO sighting reports each month. But he cautiously points out that ninety-five percent of those sightings can be explained.
