UFO video shows lights over Goodyear, AZ

A witness recorded video of strange lights in the sky over Goodyear, Arizona on the night of February 2, 2015.

This witness noticed the unusual lights at approximately 9:15 p.m. He describes:

I saw this ufo while driving. It was moving south over the Estrella Mountains. The lights were a fiery color. What is not visible in the video is the shape of the craft and the massive size of it. After it disappeared we continued to drive in the direction it was headed, eventually driving behind the mountain but saw nothing.

Others in the Goodyear area saw the mysterious lights too. And local news station ABC15 even aired a story about the lights, commenting on how the event was reminiscent of the well-known Phoenix Lights UFO incident.

Open Minds‘ Alejandro Rojas informed ABC15 that these recent lights seen over the Estrellas “are believed to be flares dropped by the military.” So ABC15 checked with Luke Air Force Base officials “who confirm they were flying out at Goldwater Range on Tuesday night and that during training, they do drop flares.”

After seeing the ABC15 news report, the witness sent his video to Open Minds. And he asserts that what he observed “looked nothing like flares.” He also describes that the UFO “did not just vanish, it was moving and moved over the mountain at an angle.”

The original Phoenix Lights incident occurred on March 13, 1997–an incident that involved multiple mass UFO sightings. Although the mysterious events were officially blamed on flares, that explanation doesn’t fit with with witness testimony or even the timetable of events, leaving the incident an unsolved mystery.

  1. In Feb 2015, my son and I were living in Goodyear, AZ and saw numerous strange lights pass overhead. We lived not far from the base, so at first thought that it had something to do with a training exercise, except I don’t remember hearing them (B-16’s and 35’s are very loud). It was not one large craft because I saw the night skies between them. They were moving eastward and I think there were about 14 or more of them. Nobody else from the neighborhood was out that night. We watched until they faded into the night. I do not remember any particular formation, but they seemed to move at the same speed. with lights adjacent and behind each other.
