traveling in a straight line...
I was camping in the Superstition Wilderness east of Phoenix, AZ. About 5:30 am on Friday, February 28th, I saw what at first I thought was a satellite, traveling from West to East.
But, then another one right behind it, and then another one, and another one. They kept coming and were traveling in a straight line one behind the other.
They were equidistant between each one. From my perspective, they looked to be about 4” apart, or the distance between all my knuckles. There were no blinking lights and no sound.
I counted 13 and then I retrieved my binoculars from my tent to get a closer look. I was too shaky to see any detail, but there were no blinking lights.
When I returned, they were still coming. Once, there was a pause or a gap and I thought that was it, but within a few moments, they began coming again.
I would estimate there were at least 20 of these lights… maybe more, as I don’t know when it started, or how many I missed when I went to my tent. My cell phone was turned off to save batteries in the backcountry, and I couldn’t get it to boot fast enough to take pictures.
The weather was breezy with occasional high clouds, but these were seen clearly where there were no clouds. I could see the Big Dipper in the Northern sky, and these lights crossed that constellation moving in a easterly direction.
I could plainly see the constellation Scorpio to the south. Venus was visible in the east. The rising sun was not yet apparent. My first thought was that it was military, but I really could not say. It was too precise, and appeared to be very high altitude, appearing exactly as a satellite would. I have never seen anything like this.
My name is Dan. I live in Oro Valley, AZ (Tucson). I am 67 years old and don’t drink or take drugs. I am employed as the Vice President of International Sales at Pioneer Packaging Worldwide (22 years), in Phoenix.
I would like to know if this is a legitimate UFO sighting, or if there is some record of these type of lights being seen.
