UFO Report: My then husband and I were travelling east on interstate 40 and were east (I believe) of Phoenix on the evening of March 13, 1997. I only remembered the date because I wrote it down. I looked north across the desert and it looked liked huge stars on a V-shaped structure (very long) floating above ground and around the mountains. I observed it for as long as I could. My husband refused to even acknowledge it was there and thought I was nuts. They (the lights) just kept on floating, up and down, in unison, on this huge V-shaped apparatus, about 5, 6 on each side. I tried to count them. It would turn, left and right, up and down, as it needed to avoid the mountains. It seemed very low to the ground. There were other smaller blinking lights near it, which I assumed could have been helicopters. It was the strangest thing I’d ever seen. I still saw them as the minutes passed and I saw them relative and parallel to where we were on the highway for as long as we were in the area. It wasn’t until a year later, after I was home, and I kept hearing these reports and seeing on television about the “Phoenix Lights.” When they gave the date, I knew that’s what I had most likely seen. The official report that they were flares is nonsense. Flares don’t float in unison. They were bright like the stars, white lights, no trails of any kind on this most strange structure. I’d also like to report that after we got to the Giant Travel plaza just east of Albuquerque and stayed for the night, I woke up about 3:30 am on the morning of the 14th and went in to the plaza. I came out and wanted to see the comet at that time (I don’t remember which comet it was) through my binoculars. As I was observing it, two softly curved chevron-shaped objects appeared out of the north skies. They almost seemed halographic, translucent, and were a very pale blue. The flew southward. I couldn’t get a clear look through the bc’s no matter how I tried to adjust them. I would say they seemed about a 1/4-1/3 size of the moon in the sky at the time..
