A Kingman, AZ, witness reported watching a glowing object on the ground at a distance that glowed just before lifting off from the desert floor about 3:33 a.m. on April 10, 2013, according to testimony from the Mutual UFO Network (MUFON) witness reporting database.
The witness was looking "north to east across the valley" when a dim light was first noticed that appeared to grow brighter.
"As I watched, approximately 90 seconds, it brightened, lifted off the desert floor, paused and hovered for approximately 33 seconds, and then suddenly flew in a straight path toward the northeast and disappeared into outer-space."
The witness states that he has seen similar objects taking off from the ground level in the same area in the past.
