I was coming back from a doctors appointment, and was heading west on university drive, when i seen a test tube shaped craft hovering less than a hundred feet up from the ground surface, and over albertsons grocery store on the corner of val vista drive, and university drive in mesa, arizona. i was sitting on the passenger side of my car while my roommate drove. i glanced over and knew that what i was seeing was a craft of extraterrestrial origin. the craft was a dull metalic nickel plated color, and was a very large cigar shaped or test tube shaped. the craft stayed stationary and not moving for several minutes as i observed the most amazing thing i have ever seen. we turned south onto val vista drive and as we drove to our home i continued to watch the craft until i could no longer see the craft anymore. the traffic was moderately moving along, and i know other people seen it besides myself.
