Phoenix witness asks for help identifying UFOs

See also

A Phoenix, AZ, witness is wondering what the two unidentified objects are that turned up on a recent sunset photograph, according to testimony in Case 53967 from the Mutual UFO Network (MUFON) witness reporting database.

The witness was outside about 6:15 p.m. on January 29, 2014, and shooting photos of the sunset when the capture was made.

"Used my newer Droid cell phone, took a few photos, deleted some and kept two," the witness stated. "I really didn't look closely at the pictures at this time."

But the witness took a closer look when exchanging photos with a granddaughter on February 6, 2014.

"This was when I really 'looked' at the photos and was shocked at what I was looking at. I look at the sky often and never see anything (UFOs). My camera 'saw' the objects. I didn't see anything while taking the photos, except the sunset as I wasn't looking for objects in the sky."

But the unusual shapes in the photo caught the witnesses' attention.

"Not only was I shocked to see the objects, but the fact that there were saucer-shaped objects - and the cylinder object also - thought that was unusual."

The image can be viewed on this page - or view the original images uploaded with the case file: Image 1 and Image 2.

The witness is hoping Arizona MUFON can solve the mystery. Phoenix is the capital and largest city in Arizona, population 1,445,632. Arizona has a UFO Alert Rating of 3 with a high number of recent reports. Arizona was the 4th highest reporting state with 32 reports in January 2014 - while California had 102 reports - the highest reporting state in the nation.

Recent reports of low flying UFOs from around the country include:

The above quotes were edited for clarity. Please keep in mind that most UFO reports can be explained as something natural or man-made. If Arizona MUFON investigates and reports back on this case, I will release an update. Please report UFO activity to
