An Arizona witness in Maricopa County traveling east along I-10 with her granddaughter reported watching a triangle-shaped object just "200 feet above the car" that made no sound, according to testimony in one of the 94 cases logged in over Memorial Day weekend from the Mutual UFO Network (MUFON) witness reporting database.
The woman noticed her granddaughter looking out the window at something about 1:30 p.m. on July 15, 2011, in Case 56583.
"I tried to look out the front windshield but it was too dangerous because of the traffic," the witness stated. "So I opened the driver side window and looked up. I didn't expect to see a huge craft hovering just above my car. It was shaped like a triangle."
The witness described the object.
"The color was a gun metal black. It had a strange mat finish. There was something about the color and the finish of the craft that was like nothing I ever seen before. Rather than reflect light it seemed like it absorbed it. It didn't make a sound. There were these things that looked like rocket boosters on the underside. I know there were three and I think there were five."
The witness stated that she was confused because it appeared that no one else in the busy traffic around her noticed the object.
"The freeway was busy this time of the day too. It was hovering so low I remember thinking it was impossible for no one else to see it. It couldn't have been even 200 feet above the car. I don't remember more details very sharply because I was stunned, confused, torn between wanting to look, and trying not to because of the I-10 traffic. It just wasn't safe to not focus on driving. I was glancing at the cars around me, the craft, the road. We still talk about it. My granddaughter is 12 now and says she still remembers."
Maricopa County is a county located in the south-central part of Arizona, population 3,817,117.
