Perhaps of all the UFO sightings in recorded history thus far, the incidents that occurred on March 13, 1997 in Phoenix, Arizona, USA stand out as the most credible. This is one of the rare cases, possibly the only one, in which credible images of the UFO sighting were not only available, but were also broadcast on CNN, the world’s leading news network.
What makes the video images even more believable is that there are images taken by different people in different parts of the city. Most of this footage shows eight orbs above the Phoenix sky. Seven of these orbs floated together, while an eighth was alone in the distance (the lone orb can be seen in the center left of the photo on the left). This event was reported on CNN, USA Today, and also on the Discovery Channel. Many people in the world now know about the sighting of the “Phoenix Lights”. But what many may not know is that this was just one piece of a much larger puzzle, because that night in March 1997, several UFO sightings were reported in this area, including a large boomerang-shaped craft, a spinning ship in the shape of a spinning top. and a gigantic triangle-shaped ship 3.2 kilometers wide. There are also several witnesses.
Around 6:55 p.m. PT, a young man in Henderson, Nevada, allegedly witnessed a V-shaped object, with six large lights on its leading edge. He described the object as coming from the northwest and described it as the size of a “Boeing 747”, it generated a sound like a “strong wind” and as it continued to the southeast, it soon disappeared over the horizon.
The next reported sighting was of a former police officer in Paulden, Arizona. He had just left his house at 8:15 PM (Mountain Time) and was driving with his family. He described what he saw as “a very strange group of distinctly red-orange lights, consisting of 4-5 lights up front, followed by a single light that seemed to be far from the others. The impression of being in a Formation of ‘ V ‘, something like a wedge or a boomerang in shape. ” Each individual light in the array appeared to the control to consist of two separate sources of orange light.
Within minutes of these sightings, there was a flood of phone calls to the National UFO Center, the police, the local media, and the nearby Luke Air Force Base (LAFB) about similar sightings in nearby towns.
All of this pointed to the fact that various objects, all markedly different in appearance, and most of them almost unbelievably large, passed over Arizona that night.
A group of three witnesses, located just north of Phoenix, reported seeing a huge V-shaped craft with five lights on its ventral surface, gliding eerily over them. Witnesses emphasized how gigantic the object was, blocking up to 70-90 degrees from the sky. This vessel was also photographed and the image published in USA Today.
Another group of witnesses reported the largest ship of all, which was reportedly over 2 miles wide. This huge ship is known as the “Great Black Triangle”.
This gigantic ship was first seen a short distance over north Phoenix between 8:30 and 8:45 p.m., where key witnesses (real estate people who subdivided the area) estimated its size to be up to 3 , 2 kilometers wide when the wingtip lights fell. on streets that are separated by 2.8 kilometers. Its flight path took it to the ground (about 2,000 feet) where it was seen that it had not only dozens of lights along its leading edges, but also a row of windows in which the silhouettes of “people” were observed! ! At some point further south, other witnesses reported that they saw nothing but the row of windows with silhouettes of beings, since all other lights were off at this point. Shortly after, the craft was seen by a family traveling on Interstate-10 from Tucson to Phoenix.
To estimate the size of this object, consider the following testimonial from this family. The witnesses, who were traveling in their car on I-10 near Casa Grande, said the object was so large that they could see one “wingtip” of the object from the left window of their car and the other “wingtip. ” right. They estimated that they were driving at approximately 130 kilometers per hour, and they stayed under the object for between one and two minutes as it moved in the OPPOSITE direction! They emphasized how large the object was, as it blocked the sky above their car. They say the ship was big enough for a C5-A Galaxy or “Condor” troop transport plane (the largest known conventional plane) to land on it! The ship had a defined structure and a blue-black color like that of a shotgun barrel. They also reported seeing rectangular “paneled” structures at the bottom of the nave.
There were also reports of a large circular saucer-shaped object that had an estimated diameter of 1.6 kilometers. This was first witnessed by a retired airline pilot, his children, and a friend, and was seen coming down Scottsdale Road around 10:20 PM. This craft turned into Sky Harbor where it crossed air traffic before disappearing from view over South Mountain. Corroborating downtown Phoenix witness, also a former Vietnam War pilot and retired US Marshal, described how the ship reflected city lights on its belly and blocked stars with its upper half, which testifies that it is a unique ship of spectacularity. “mile wide” ratios. This witness also claims that he videotaped the entire episode, but the videotape mysteriously disappeared in what may be a real-life MIB (Men In Black) case.
Bill Greiner, a trucker who never believed in UFOs until that night, saw two large spinning top-shaped objects with a ring of pulsing red light around them. Bill said 3 LAFB fighters tried to intercept the objects, but they suddenly shot vertically into the sky, leaving the F-15s far below.
Another interesting aspect of the Phoenix Lights case is that despite several witnesses saying that at least 6-8 pairs of F-15 fighters from the nearby LAFB rushed to intercept these gigantic UFOs, the Air Force denies this. LAFB public relations staff have attributed the strange lights in the video to “flares” launched by an Air Force plane. However, all experts agree that the characteristics of the flares are very different from those seen that night. No flare can last as long as the lights over Phoenix did. Also, flares emit smoke trails as they fall and do not stay at a stationary altitude. This ad clearly indicates an attempt to block the truth. The LAFB also denies receiving calls that night of strange events over the Phoenix skies. But the phone records of dozens of people clearly indicate otherwise. They called LAFB and reported these sightings.
Despite thousands of witnesses, the CNN videotape, and the clear cover-up by authorities, this case was virtually excluded from the print media, until USA Today ran a front-page story about it on 18 January. June 1997.
What really happened that night? Why is there a cover-up? Why isn’t the media helping to get to the bottom of this case?
One thing is for sure, the Phoenix Lights sightings are humanity’s clearest indication, yet, that we are not alone.
