Last night on the History Channel, UFO Hunters did a show on the Phoenix Lights. It was great. They had contact with many witnesses and presented the case that something other than military flares, flew over the state of Arizona in 1997. So what were the Phoenix Lights? Were they a top secret military aircraft? Were they an extraterrestrial vehicle from another solar system? The bottom line is this, we may never know.
The show featured about half a dozen witnesses who came forward saying that they saw a boomerang shaped craft, estimated to be over a mile wide. There was also another dynamic that I had never heard mentioned before. One of the witnesses told of looking up and seeing the craft shimmer. That statement made me sit up, because this is similar to what Ricky Sorrells described when he saw the giant UFO in Stephenville Texas, in the early part of 2008.
Another interesting part of the show was the experiment, UFO hunters did regarding flares. They had two of the witnesses, that saw the Lights over Phoenix in 1997, observe flares that they shot into the air. While there was a similarity, both witnesses confirmed that this was not what they saw. The military and skeptics have insisted that the Phoenix Lights were nothing more than flares, with parachutes, that were part of a training exercise. This is the typical response that the government and military offer to the public.
Dr. Lynne Kitei was also interviewed on the program. Dr. Lynne is one of the persons interviewed in my new book, The Alien Interviews. She made it clear that she had seen the lights before, near her house and that the event that captured national attention, was a continuation of what she had previously observed. They showed some of her footage that she captured both on video and 35 m film. Dr. Lynne has produced a wonderful documentary on the Lights and it can be purchased on her site @ www.thephoenixlights.net
Another interesting part of the show – they may have saved the best for last – was the appearance of former governor, Fyfe Symington. I’ve BLOGGED about this before, but it was good to see him again on UFO Hunters. Symington made it clear that he had been in Phoenix the night of the sightings and he, too, saw the craft. He then drops a bomb by saying that, in his opinion the craft was not of this world. He also apoligizes to his former constituents for making light of the event – he held a press conference and had senior staff member dress up as an alien.
A lot has changed since 1997. There is not the blatant ridicule, heaped on anyone who comes forward saying that they have had a sighting. In fact, with shows like UFO Hunters, the information is becoming known to people who otherwise would remain ignorant of what is happening in our skies.
Here are some questions that remain unanswered. Is there a similarity in what was seen in Phoenix and the Stephenville UFO sightings? Was the craft a top secret experimental aircraft? Was the event a precursor to what I call The Coming Great Deception? Much of this is discussed in The Alien Interviews. It’s an interactive E-book that is available on this site. 17 people were interviewed for the book. Get your copy today!
