My husband and I were backing out of our driveway on our way to the park to walk our dog. I happened to look up and observed a bright light hovering over Chandler, AZ over our neigborhood. The light was so bright it looked like I was looking at the light from a welding torch. It first looked like the planet Venus, then it got brighter and bigger. I noticed it started to move along a path. I ended up at Tumble Weed Park in Chandler and got out of my car. I looked up due North and saw that it had moved and it was now closer to Tumble Weed Park but the elevation was higher. It then hovered for about 5 minutes. Then it started to turn orange then in a minute it turned Bright Red. Then, it turned back to the original bright white light and started to ascend up so high that it finaly looked like a very distant star. It vanished right after. I tried to call the chandler municipal airport tower control but I got the recorder stating that they were closed as today is Labor Day. I called Phoenix Sky Harbor and reported my findings while it was turning orange/red. I saw the same type of sphere/light on Sept. 11, 2009 around the same time 7:00-7:40 pm in Apache Junction. I felt frustrated that I could not videotape the object especially when it changed colors and ascended vanished so quickly.
