Lights in the Sky: A Double Take

Published

on

It has now been a year since I returned to my hobby of night sky photography and I have seen many different types of lights in the sky. Most of them are explainable; satellites, spacecraft, high-flying aircraft, and other lights that have totally celestial explanations.

I have spotted some lights that I can’t easily explain or readily identify. With a little time and amateur sleuthing, an explanation was found for most of them. As the year progressed I seemed to have acquired some tools and news skills to help with identifying the lights. One main tool is the awesome software app for my iPhone titled Sky Guide, which also has an add-on for satellites and celestial objects, and it is pretty accurate when you track these objects in the sky

Even with the new skills and tools, there are some lights that don’t have an easy explanation and remain to this day in the unidentified category.

November 20, 2015 7:47PM MST: (North Phoenix, Arizona) from our backyard, we noticed a reddish-orange light hovering just above the eastern horizon. I didn’t see it I ascend or descend when it first appeared. I proceeded to take several pictures of it and watched as it just faded out and disappeared. I looked at the footage later that night and noticed that it didn’t go in just one direction, it fly in a pretty erratic flight pattern before disappearing into nothingness. You can clearly see this when you play the pictures back in sequence.

A more recent incident happened on the night of December 10, 2015 this also witnessed from my backyard. Around 6:50 PM I noticed blinking white light moving west above neighboring houses. The light was high in the sky high and blinking in intervals of three, then blank and then starting over. It seemed to be above the clouds as it moved along. I swung the camera around to capture it and then I noticed a second white light moving west, blinking in the same sequence, heading south. Then I noticed that they were blinking the same sequence in synch with each other. The second light made an abrupt turn to the west, now following the flight path of the first light. As the two lights moved toward a distant tree line, I noticed a third light moving towards the south, blinking in the same sequence as the first two. The third light also made an abrupt turn toward the west and was following the same flightpath as the as the first two. I tried to identify these lights, and strained as I listened for any engine noise, but didn’t hear anything. I kept seeing these blinking lights for what I would say was for about 45 minutes to an hour. I caught most of them with my camera.

In the days that followed, I’ve tried to find a reasonable explanation for the blinking lights. One possible conclusion was that they were part navigation lights belonging to the new F 35 fighter. Luke Air Force base is west of us, and they are one of the training bases for the new fighter jet. When I saw the last group of lights that night, I heard slight rumbling of what sounded like jet engine noises akin to fighter planes.

I did a little bit of research and I was able to find video of F 35 flying at night and the night and the light sequences seemed similar. I am not saying that this is the explanation for the lights but it’s a strong possibility and it is a good example of what a little bit of research can do in these situations.

No, you will not find an explanation for all unidentified lights in the sky, but being an informed observer you can identify most of them.

Unraveling the Mystery: Strange UFO Sightings in Arizona and California

Unexplained sightings of UFOs spotted over Arizona and California, sparking intense Reddit discussions and fueling curiosity.

UFO Sightings: Arizona & California Mysteries

On May 22, 2024, around 9:04 PM Phoenix Mountain Time, something unknown was spotted over Arizona and parts of California. Several eyewitnesses took to Reddit to discuss their sightings, providing similar details with slight variations and sharing still frames from recorded videos of this peculiar phenomenon.

There were speculations on Reddit that the object could have been a SpaceX launch from Florida, even though it was launched on the opposite coast earlier that evening. The suggested flight path would have passed over the reported sighting areas in the Southwest after completing a global orbit.

I personally witnessed the object as well. As I gazed westward, I noticed a hazy whitish object that initially resembled an aircraft with its bright landing lights on, maneuvering through the clouds. However, the sky was completely clear, and the moon was situated to the southeast behind me. I quickly grabbed my iPhone and began recording. I captured a glowing white circular vapor cloud with a brighter, more solid-looking point of light at its center. It followed a flight path originating from the northwest, gradually shifting towards the southeast. As the object passed directly overhead, the cloudy shroud dissipated, revealing a radiant point of light resembling a star, continuing its trajectory. Eventually, it vanished as it moved towards the slightly behind me heading southeast. I stopped recording a few seconds later and scanned the skies. To my amazement, I then observed a massive glowing crescent-shaped object moving in the same direction and flight path, but it suddenly dissipated before I could resume recording. Astonished by what I had witnessed and its unusual behavior, I momentarily forgot to capture that part of the event.

This first sighting was recorded on May 22, 2024. Unexplained sightings of UFOs spotted over Arizona and California, sparking intense Reddit discussions and fueling curiosity.

Immediately after the sighting, I went indoors and searched the internet. I stumbled upon a Reddit community where I discovered a video recorded through a car window, capturing a similar object to what I had witnessed.

Some individuals believed it could be a SpaceX booster rocket expending fuel before its landing. This theory appeared logical to me, and I conducted some research but found no substantial information to confirm or debunk this conclusion.

Upon reading comments from the community, I learned more details. People reported seeing the object when it first appeared, describing color changes, and gaining further insight into the crescent-shaped object that emerged after the initial one vanished. Some even claimed to have spotted military helicopters and a stealthy plane with its lights off. Although I did not personally witness this, if true, it would add to the mystery.

Though I have not entirely dismissed the possibility of the SpaceX booster rocket theory, I now approach it with skepticism after a similar incident occurred the following evening.

On May 23, 2024, at 9:14 PM, according to my phone’s timestamp, I recorded an extremely similar object once again, following the same flight path. It emitted a glowing light but dissipated slightly earlier, leaving behind a solid star-like object that also faded away while traveling towards the southeast. A few seconds later, the crescent-shaped object reappeared, and this time I managed to capture it before its disappearance.

May 23, 2024 sighting of a similar object to the one seen over Phoenix the previous night.

I am currently searching Reddit, other community forums, and news sources in hopes of finding an explanation for these sightings.

The search for an explanation regarding these sightings continues. It is crucial to approach this investigation with a focus on factual evidence rather than dismissive speculation. By actively engaging with platforms like Reddit, community forums, and reliable news sources, we can hope to uncover reliable information and gain a better understanding of these mysterious occurrences. For further exploration of related resources and to stay updated on the latest developments, we encourage you to check out the provided links and references. Together, let us strive for a comprehensive and informed analysis of these sightings.

About Skinwalker Ranch

Skinwalker Ranch, also known as Sherman Ranch, is a 512-acre property located southeast of Ballard, Utah. It is believed to be the site of various paranormal and UFO-related activities. The ranch is named after the skin-walker of Navajo legend, which refers to vengeful shamans.

Background

Reports of UFO sightings in the Uintah Basin became widely known in the 1970s. However, the claims about the famous ranch first surfaced in 1996 through an article published in the Salt Lake City-based newspaper called Deseret News. Investigative journalist George Knapp later wrote a series of articles about the ranch in Las Vegas Mercury, a popular weekly magazine. The reports described the inexplicable and terrifying experiences of a family who had purchased and occupied the property.

The ranch, situated in Uintah County in the western region, adjacent to the Uintah and Ouray Indian Reservation, gained popularity as the UFO ranch due to its alleged 50-year history of peculiar incidents. Kelleher and Knapp reported nearly 100 occurrences that included mysterious disappearances and mutilations of cattle, sightings of unidentified flying objects or orbs, large animals with red eyes that remained unharmed by gunfire, and invisible objects emitting destructive magnetic fields. Retired US Army Colonel John B. Alexander, involved in the investigation, described the NIDSci effort as a scientific approach to gather solid evidence. However, the investigators acknowledged the challenges they faced in obtaining scientifically publishable evidence.

Cattle mutilations have been part of the folklore of the surrounding area for decades. When Robert Bigelow, founder of the National Institute for Discovery Science, purchased the ranch for $200,000 in 1996, this was reportedly the result of his having been convinced by the stories of mutilations, which included tales of strange lights and unusual impressions made in grass and soil told by the family of former ranch owner Terry Sherman.
