UFO flying over the Yuma/Foothills, AZ area on a cold December night

On a cold December night around 10 p.m., Christina Kylochko and a friend of hers were driving from Foothills, AZ to Yuma, AZ on Gila Ridge Road while having a nice conversation when all of a sudden, they saw something that made them stop their discussion and shift their attention to the nighttime sky. Christina described the object that they saw that night as a shining green and red light flying through the sky and suddenly disappearing. Christina stated that the object couldn’t have disappeared behind a mountain or trees since there were none on the object’s trajectory. After the sighting, Christina heard from a friend of her sister who lived around the area of the event describing a light shining green and red lights and then disappearing.

What could Christina and her friend have seen that night? The famous Yuma Proving Grounds and the Marine Corps Air Station could offer explanation since aircraft are seen flying all the time around the Yuma/Foothills area. Though by that explanation, it would imply that Yuma citizens are not strangers to aircraft and are not likely to confuse helicopters and jets with UFOs. Also, how can the sudden disappearance of the object be explained? Again it is up to the reader to decide.

Welcome to UFOs Over the Desert- Strange lights over Somerton, AZ

On a warm summer night on June 2011, Somerton, AZ, Jocelyn Lopez goes out to her backyard to witness six strange lights in the sky. “They were flying in formation, two rows of three, the lights vanished and then appeared again, this happen for 10 minutes”, she commented on her experience. Jocelyn is not the first person to see unidentified flying objects in the sky. Ever since the famous Kenneth Arnold reported seeing nine mysterious lights near Mount Rainer, Washington on June 24, 1947, the reports of UFO sightings have been rapidly increasing by the thousands. Just last year, the National UFO Reporting Center had 4,903 reports of UFO sightings. In the state of Arizona 2,269 UFO sightings have been reported in total.

What are all those people seeing in the sky? Are they truly seeing extraterrestrial spacecraft or merely mistaking it with an average aircraft from this planet? “UFOs Over the Desert”  will present accounts and experiences for the reader to decide for themselves.
