Boomerang, Chevron, Fireball
While sitting on my back porch, I noticed what looked like an orange ball of fire moving east to west. I initially thought this was just a plane or helicopter as I usually see, as I live in the flight path of the Scottsdale Airport. As it got closer, the object appeared to be a flaming chevron or bow shape that was glowing and smoldering like a fire. The object appeared to completely stop when it was directly south of my backyard, then change direction, moving north toward my home, then stopped again, turning 180 degrees in a half circle motion back to the southern horizon until my view was obstructed by a home.
The object did not make any engine or propeller noise while I observed it and also seemed to change direction in a controlled and deliberate manner. Visibility was clear and moon, stars and constellations could be clearly seen.
