Witness Reports Non-moving Star-Like Object over Arizona
UFO Depiction

Scottsdale, Arizona - 01-05-13

I was in my backyard at approximately 1900 hours local time bar-b-qing.

It was dark since it was winter (1/5/13) and I walked out by the pool to look at the stars for a moment. A particularly bright star-like object was in the sky about 20-30 degrees above the horizon to the Southeast.

It did not move at all (as an airplane would) and I watched it off and on for about 2 hours or so.

I looked at it through 10 power binoculars, but could not make out any features whatsoever. This star-like object was twinkling brilliantly in various colors like blue, green, red, yellow, and orange.

It was brighter than Jupiter which was also visible overhead. I called channel 10 news to see if they were interested in going outside to take a look, but I doubt that they did anything.

This object stayed stationary the whole time, so I convinced myself that it was in fact just an atmospheric condition making a star look brilliant and change colors.

I went to bed about 9 PM and it was still there. The next night (1/6/13) at the same time, I went outside and no such object was present, no bright stars of any kind were in that area of the sky.

I was in the US Navy (aircrew) for 4 years and have held a private pilot's license since the 1970s. I am 67 years old and camp out frequently so I have seen plenty of stars. I have never seen anything like this before.
