Fast Moving UFO
June 7, 2024 - Pine, Arizona

I was taping a vulture in Pine AZ at 8:24 am . Behind it, some kind of trail was wizzing at an unbelievably fast rate, in the background. The clip is 4 secs. I slowed it way down, and can’t tell what was going. At times, it looked to be going back and forth. In a still, it looks like a cylinder, kind of cartridge like object, is in the stream. Clips available on request. View Report

UFO Report #: 1859
April 12, 2024 - Gilbert, Arizona

I went outside around 8pm to get the luggage out of the car, we're visiting family in Bullhead City, Arizona. I looked skyward and to the west noticed a strange glowing fuzzy light approaching. It was flying slow like a small airplane. It had one bright light on the bottom of it towards what would be the front. There was a fan like light shining out each side from this light. It appeared to be in a dust cloud or fog, but the sky was totally clear. It also had three rectangular soft yellow lights in a row behind the bright light. As it got a mile or two to the east it dimmed to black and was no longer visible. It was completely silent and had no typical aircraft identification lights of any kind View Report

Tic Tac Object Made Contact with Drone
April 10, 2024 - Phoenix, Arizona

Was flying my drone when a massive what seemed to resemble a dryer vent duct came slowly down towards the top of my drone and gave it a sort of bunny kiss love tap then abruptly flipped itself and instantly swooshed in a wavey slithering like spiral motion straight back up well above any airliner would be flying and it happened instantly and silently and then it came back down and came to a halt horizontally and seemed to be almost like a leaf in the wind except it was a dryer ventilation duct shaped object swooshing and swaying again Getting increasingly higher and higher. It seemed to come and go at this point changing in colors from almost silver to blue to a mirror like glow and it seemed at this point to look like a ribbon dancing in the sky from one location to another changing it’s course and gaining in altitude.

Multiple Orbs Flying Around Each Other at the Twin Arrows Casino
March 17, 2024 - Twin arrows/flagstaff, Arizona

At about 3:40am I was parked at the twin arrows casino in Arizona facing east when I noticed about 8 to 10 lights. It looked like stars or planes at first with their formation but then some would get really bright then fade to black but zigzag and fly around each other in a circle. I got a picture from my iphone 15 pro max of their formation with 5 in a square and 1 top left dim light and 1 bottom dim. They were over New Mexico area I am guessing near Shiprock and standing rock. As a truck driver I see sometimes often. I don't know how I can upload the picture to here though. After they did this formation several times they disappeared towards Fort Wingate New Mexico.

I was thinking in my yard getting out of my swimming pool when I heard a jet engine I looked to the south west and observed an orange color ball of light being pursued by 2 f35 fighter jets which we’re doing maneuvers behind the ball I grabbed my camera and video taped just a few seconds of the light before it disappeared. About a half hour later I again observed another orange colored light coming from the south west and going eastward moments afterwards I heard 2 other f35 fighter jets and observed there beacons aggressively pursuing and engaging the light this lasted for a few seconds before the jets broke off and fly east while flew north west. I have video of both engagements.

March 5, 2023 - Apache junction, Arizona

I noticed a high speed light heading east to west at dusk I initially thought it was a shooting star. The light abruptly stopped and made erratic movements above the Superstition mountains. At this point I knew that it could not be an aircraft or helicopter due to the speed and type of movement. The light would randomly go on and off as it descend out of sight on the west slope of the Superstition mountains. The entire event lasted about 1-2 minutes. View Report

They were perfectly still, no movement or sound whatsoever. Over open fields, pitch dark, clear night. Definitely NOT stars or aircraft. Wanted to stay outside to observe further, but had to take care of something inside my house. I went back out about 20 minutes later. They were gone. View Report

February 7, 2023 - Prescott valley, Arizona

Just a little after sunrise. Looking out 3rd story window in Prescott Valley near Hwy 69/Sundog Ranch Rd.

January 22, 2023 - Flagstaff, Arizona

Me and my boyfriend were driving home from dinner, as we stopped at a red light I noticed a white ball of light in front of us sitting stationary in the sky. I looked away for a split second when I heard my boyfriend yell “What the F***?!”, this just confirmed for me that we had seen the same thing. Although he had seen the same light sitting stationary in the sky, he also saw it take off due West and vanish within a second or two. We haven’t been able to shut up about it all night. View Report

January 19, 2023 - Chandler, Arizona

I saw three objects flying in a triangle formation above my house in Chandler, AZ. I initially thought that they were stunt planes. They had fixed wings and were the size of small planes but didn’t move like any planes or drones I have ever seen. They started playing around in the sky turning in circles unlike any fixed wing plane could do and all while real planes were flying beneath them to the nearby airport. I have a video of it and it’s super strange. They fly off quicker than I could blink my eye at the end of the video. View Report

January 5, 2023 - Ehrenberg, Arizona

I saw this bright object east of Ehernberg Arizona and being an amateur astronomer I knew it was not a planet in that position just above the horizon. Also brighter than a planet. I also fly drones so as I observed it darting around very quickly I determined it could not be a lighted drone. My phone video zoomed in shows the object moving quickly and changing directions.

January 1, 2023 - Maricopa, Arizona

I first noticed what looked liked a plane in the sky and asked myself why is there a plane flying so low and at 1154p in the direction it was heading. At first I said to myself its just a plane. I began driving towards my destination and noticed in my rearview mirror a second identical aircraft was traveling in the same direction. I pulled over and got out of my vehicle to record it. Once I began recording a 3rd then a 4th and then a total of 8 aircrafts appeared and were all visible and were following each other. As the began dissappearing the ladt 4 aircrafts started flying adjacent to or parallel with each other.then they disappeared. There was no abnormal movement other than they disappeared. What made me believe they were ufos is the fact that there has never been so many aircrafts to appear that suddenly and going the direction they were heading. View Report

December 1, 2022 - Petrified forest , Arizona

Driving the uhaul from Phoenix to Chicago through the Petrified Forest on 40 before Chambers. It was 12:30 a.m. The dark sky was so clear, so close, so beautiful; I've never seen it so clear like this before. Driving up one of the mountains I could see in the upper left portion of my windshield a bright star in the sky that was much larger than any other star. After watching it for a minute i noticed it was moving and then it broke off into 2 different moving objects. One curled up and to the right, shot out towards the right side of the windshield view. It then curled down and to the left. The brightness of the object then flashed dim, dim, and the vanished. The 2nd object that went low shot far right and then curled up and down left and then went dim, dim, and then disappeared. The 2 objects would then reappear in different spots and do a series of curl movements, and do the disappear/reappear thing for about 3 mins. I know exactly what I saw. Doesn't seem like there could be anything made from this world that would do something in the sky like that, and for the duration it lasted. Just blown away by this! View Report

November 1, 2022 - Phoenix, Arizona

I was in a plane leaving Phoenix, heading to the Northeast. We were about 30-45 mins from the Phoenix Airport around 4:15pm, going over nothing but desert, when I noticed something flying down there, hovering not too far above the ground. I thought at first it could just be a bird because it was sort of the shape of a bird, but then I remembered how small cars look from way up in a plane so I realized that the object was definitely the size of another guy plane or a small house. The sun caught it for a moment and I could see that it was definitely made of metal, silver in color, heading West. I can’t think of any human technology that can fly a couple hundred feet above the ground like that…and there wasn’t a town for many many miles around either. I believe I spotted a UFO from my flight! View Report

I was outside in my car in Tempe. I was watching the falcon X launch. In my rear view mirror behind me I caught a glimpse of something in the sky. It hung in the same place for over 20 min. At the time I wasn't sure what to think, No one else seemed to be noticing anything other than the Falcon x.

Brilliant red circle began to form in the forward clouds. Once full, a triangle formed in the center. Just before the opening closed, an orb of light, not so much a craft, but possibly itself being light came through and glided around, then turned south and disappeared into the clouds.

Famous Arizona UFO Sightings

The Phoenix Lights – March 13th, 1997

This is one of the better-known sightings of recent time. On the night of March 13th, 1997, thousands of Arizona residents witnessed an enormous triangular shaped craft slowly traversing a southernly path through Arizona. Witnesses described the craft as being larger than a football field, with dimly lit lights on the bottom that exhibited odd lighting characteristics. One of the witnesses to this craft happened to be Fife Symington, the Governor of Arizona at the time. A later incident that same night was caught on camera by a few witnesses. This second incident involved a series of lights in the sky which may have been flares dropped by the Maryland Air National Guard, who was conducting a training mission in Arizona at the time. While the two incidents may be unrelated, many have dismissed this incident as simply flares without further investigating the earlier craft incident. In a strange twist of fate, members of the religious group Heaven’s Gate, likely took this sighting as confirmation of their beliefs, and unfortunately committed mass suicide. They believed there was a UFO in the tail of Comet Hale-Bopp that would take their souls to another level of existence.

Travis Walton’s UFO Abduction – November 5th, 1975

Travis Walton and the other members of his logging crew witnessed a large disc-shaped craft hovering in the woods of the Sitgreaves National Forest, outside of Snowflake, Arizona. Travis was taken by the craft, where he spent five days, before being returning to the side of road near town. His memory of those five days is not complete, only being able to remember a few hours passing. It is unclear whether the beings on this craft took Travis in order to provided medical intervention, or used it as an opportunity to study Travis, thus filling the needs of some larger project.
