I am visiting my sister here in Tucson and last evening coming home out on Tanque Verdie
road west, "hopefully spelled right", we noticed what honestly looked like an airplane to me.
It was coming straight at us at about 3000 ft, "I am a pilot".
Suddenly, a relatively bright "star like object" appeared to drop from it slowly. It was under
control by someone or something as it stopped a few seconds, then headed west several
It then quickly headed back east toward us in the truck, maintaining altitude. It was changing
colors from red to white but in a twinkling "star like fashion."
There was no place to pull over
in the first few seconds, but we kept the object in sight.
Then a second "star like" object

object any longer and the people in the back seat were making jokes about my sister and I
as we were the only ones who could see it from the from the front seat of the four door pick
We were just a minute or two from home, and I again tried to relocate any part of what we
saw, but could not. I just can't understand what or why an aircraft would release something
