He proceeded to make light of the situation by bringing his aide on stage dressed in an alien costume. There is nothing top-secret about flares or their use, even a new type that can somehow appear, then disappear, then reappear in the same spot and stay fixed in one position. There was at least one person who videotaped both the 8:30 vee and the later event. Actor Kurt Russell claimed he was the pilot that reported the phenomena. It is plainly obvious that many people saw something very strange not something as mundane and routine as a flare drop and felt compelled to report it and find out what it was. The flare drop made a good decoy.
Dropping flares over populated areas and Indian reservations is prohibited due to possible injury to civilians or unintentional ground fires and would expose the military to all kinds of law suits. They can appear together in rigid formation or separated by miles. Hundreds, and perhaps thousands of witnesses from all walks of life reported seeing a large v-shaped craft, over a mile across with unusual lights, travel slowly and silently by at a very low altitude. The lights are what they are, and hopefully someone will have the guts to tell the truth someday. Had the original video of the Phoenix Lights been shot in infrared, we would have a decidedly different view of things. You are not likely to see them in the Arizona skies. Benjamin Radford Benjamin Radford, M.
I know what flares look like, both from personal observation and analysis of video footage and photos, and I have personally spoken to military personnel who work with flares on a daily basis, including a highly qualified pyrotechnic expert. The orbs are fiercely argued to be flares dropped by the military due to their similar appearance. In Phoenix, a small number of local news outlets noted the event, but it received little attention beyond that. Could you provide some more information about this links, vids, etc? They are dropped over test ranges, military bases and other areas where military operations take place. The military would not deploy them over populated areas or Indian reservations.
Phoenix was the first time that we actively engaged them, and that has provoked a more hostile relationship. He's a supporter of Billy Meier, so that should show you how credible he is. . There are other holes to this theory. I know where it is in proximity to Phoenix and I have an excellent understanding of the activity that takes place there based on numerous sources including military personnel.
Many skeptics only consider the sightings that are explained away or will only accept explanations that are completely implausible. John Kaiser was standing outside with his wife and sons in Prescott Valley when they noticed a cluster of lights to the west-northwest of their position. The footage includes plenty of scenes where the camera is askew or pointing at the ground, or simply recording subject matter not germane to the story. She had the unique opportunity to observe a trio of orbs in close proximity less than 200 feet away and described them as balls of amber light approximately 3 to 6 feet across. As the months passed, more and more elaborate — and ridiculous — claims were made by eyewitnesses who were clearly trying to one-up each other. It actually shows the later flares. It is important to note that a mile-wide blimp can only be deployed at sub-orbital altitudes where the air is extremely thin and the craft is virtually weightless.
But please feel free to correct me if I'm wrong. All that is needed to create a is one person who may not recognize a light or object in the sky. They did not glare, emit any beam of light or illuminate their adjacent surroundings. I believe the witnesses actually saw what they saw. These orbs defy explanation and are the variety I personally witnessed on November 21st 2005.
The burning magnesium from the flares illuminates the rising smoke above. A fleet of aircraft entering Class B airspace without communication or clearance would be considered a serious threat and they most certainly would have been forced down by military pilots. That the remains belonged to the men or that they were victims of an animal attack? Some reports have it that big. In his opinion ball lightning could not occur on such a clear night and would never manifest into an array of lights and travel low and slow, in formation, across the state of Arizona. It was just like '97 - a bunch of wedding lights tied together with wire.
The orb faded in and out over twenty minutes without ever moving as it stayed fixed within the scope. The newly discovered planet is the second-closest known exoplanet to the Earth and orbits the fastest moving star in the night sky. One witness from Prescott who wished to be known only as J. For these reasons and all of the reasons described in the Cessna theory, this simply doesn't fly! The orbs stayed fixed in one position for over twenty minutes. Unlike some creators of science fiction, however, Arem buys into his own premise — he says he genuinely thinks there was an alien visit that night. The point is that no aircraft, including military aircraft, can enter Class-B airspace without communication and clearance from the airspace controller.
I'm outraged at the outright audacity of some people that make claims about what they did, when they know damned well they are simply not that clever. There were two distinct events involved in the incident: a triangular formation of lights seen to pass over the state, and a series of stationary lights seen in the Phoenix area. Fife Symington, who had an aide dress as an alien for a press conference about the phenomenon. This was later shown to be a string of flares dropped by the Maryland Air National Guard over the North Tac military range. The transformation will be challenging and I believe it is a process that every civilization must face at some point in its evolution. Comments and links that are unhelpful, arrogant, jestful, or one-worded answers such as 'Drone', 'Insects' or 'Balloons', without explanation are subject to removal.
Do you know how much wire weighs at the lengths that it would have to be in order to space it out? Ortega became editor of the Village Voice in March, 2007. Example: title:New Year's Resolutions © 1997 Cable News Network, Inc. Eyewitness testimony that doesn't match what's on tape can be dismissed as far as I'm concerned. The shear number of matching witness accounts eliminates any possibility of a hoax, unless of course you are going to suggest that thousands of people got together and decided to make up some phony story, not only in Phoenix, but other countries that have reported similar phenomenon, just so they could all have a good laugh. Paul Scowen, visiting professor of Astronomy at , performed a third analysis using daytime imagery overlaid with video shot of the lights and his findings were consistent with Cognitech.
