Wilcox - 05-22-12
On a Tuesday, about 8:40 PM, my husband and I were driving west bound on Interstate 10 somewhere near Wilcox. I was gazing at the stars out of the passenger window when I began to see flashes of light and a cluster slowly begin to form.
Some lights were flashing bright like a camera flash, while others were dim. I would have to guess that dozens of these lights had flashed randomly during this time. There were 2 separate incidents in the cluster of flashing lights, they looked like a bright orange ball that appeared like an explosion that stayed a round shape and disappeared.
One appeared to have been closer than the other and/or much larger and these two lights were a few seconds apart. The light show seemed to be contained in an area within a 100 miles wide, my apologies if this not specific enough. I convinced my husband to pull over and he saw the light show as well.
After a few minutes we began driving again, I kept watching the light show, only now the lights were flashing faster and looking brighter. Not more than fifteen minutes later, I begged my husband to pull over again because I couldn't believe my eyes.
As we stood on the passenger side of our vehicle, we noticed the lights getting brighter and flashing faster. After a couple of minutes we realized that the lights were moving towards our direction. We saw white lights that were in sets of two, one light above and one below.
As they got closer we saw the lights flew in a very tight and incomplete capital letter formation, meaning some areas of them were missing. There were a few lights flying outside the formation as well. The lights flew over us with the top of the flying directly over us at an angle from right to left.
They made no noise that I could hear and were rectangular in shape. They were small, about the size of small plane. The lights had an LED appearance to them meaning the light was distinct, but not very bright.

I stepped outside on my front porch and noticed a brilliant white sphere-shaped light near the northwest horizon, just to the right and above the setting moon. It appeared to undulate slightly but was not blinking.
It was brighter than any planet I had ever seen. I heard no noise. Thinking it was an airplane, I watched for it to move, but over a 10 minute period it remained largely stationary.
I went to get my wife to show her. When I came back out with my wife, it had dimmed slightly, but was still very bright. We watched it for another 5 minutes. I then went to get my binoculars to get a better look.
Just as I went into the house, my wife yelled for me to return because it had dimmed. I came back to see the light fade out and go completely dark for a few seconds. Then it returned briefly for a few seconds, and then disappeared completely.
After it disappeared, we noticed a much dimmer light in the general vicinity that also faded to nothing after a few seconds. About 10 minutes afterwards, a helicopter flew over the house very fast and low, but it was headed from east to west rather than northwest.
