New York – 07-07-10
My girlfriend and I were traveling south on Highway 87 towards Yankee Stadium in the Bronx, NY, and right above our vehicle approaching from the right side of the car were two very big and bright white lights.
After noticing the lights moving slowly towards us, I looked up saw that the craft was triangular in shape and either black or dark grey.
When the craft passed over our car I could see that from the back there was 3 white lights in a row and they were steady. There was no other color lights on this craft, and none of the lights blinked.
When I first saw the lights I thought maybe it was a large airplane flying slow and low, but the two lights in front were spaced apart way too far!
Living in Westchester County, NY, and not far from Westchester County Airport, I know what airplanes look like! Furthermore, The craft made no noise from what I could tell.
I had my window down, I was very excited with my head hanging out and looking up. We lost sight of the object because we were driving on the highway going south and the object was headed north above us!
As a young man I witnessed first hand the Westchester “boomerang” spotted throughout the Hudson valley, and I have also seen a triangular craft before at close sight in the summer of 1991.

Witnesses to the March 1997 mass UFO sightings wave that became known as the Phoenix Lights are coming forward with previously unreported accounts, thanks to the broadcast of American Paranormal: UFOs Over Phoenix on the National Geographic Channel. The result is that a new understanding is forming of the events of that night.
The investigation, conducted by the Phoenix UFO Examiner for Base Communications, presented a broad outline of the still unexplained mass sightings events as detailed by three iconic witnesses: Tim Ley, Mike Fortson and Michael Kryzston. These witnesses characterize both the first wave of shockingly big objects (craft?) that drifted across the state in the 8:00 PM time frame and the more enigmatic and contoversial lights that were observed and recorded around 10:00 south of the greater metropolitan Phoenix area.
The production could not, however, discuss the wide variety of other craft reported, the telepathic contact, the concurrent multiple sightings, the United States Air Force response and other aspects which make the Phoenix Lights, when fully understood, seem like the last real of Close Encounters of the Third Kind.
The extant reports are likely just the tip of a very unusual iceberg. It is estimated that tens of thousands of people observed the variety of unexplained objects on the evening of March 13, 1997—given that the reports covered almost the entire state of Arizona and came in from early evening to early the next morning. In addition to the arrays of lights in the sky videotaped by several witnesses around 10 PM, there were a variety of large craft observed, including square V shaped wings, smooth boomerang shaped wings, triangular or delta craft of various description and circular or oval shaped craft.
Phone calls flooded radio stations, air traffic control and police facilities on the evening of the event and when Phoenix City Councilwoman Frances Barwood announced that her office wanted to know about the sightings, she received over 600 reports.
Unfortunately, an air of official ridicule and denial surrounded the event which likely deterred many from providing an official report. For that matter, other than the National UFO Reporting Center, there was no official Arizona state or other governmental agency where a report could be presented. When the then-Governor Fife Symington publicly ridiculed the witnesses and the press in a press conference in which an aid paraded in a blatantly fake alien costume, those who had come forward, such as Sue Watson, were outraged.
Many others, however, chose not to discuss their observation to avoid the stigma associated with the report of a truly phenomenal event. Only now are witnesses wiling to recount the unbelivable, to themselves, to their friends and to the benefit of society.
The National Geographic channel investigation into the event, which is part of the Mysterious Science series, is a serious look at the implications of the known sightings reports. And those implications are significant.
By correlating witness Tim Ley’s account of his family’s observation of a large silent, slow moving craft in northern Phoenix with a laser topographic scan of the nearby terrain, the size of the giant V shaped craft was determined to be 1500 feet in wingspan and along each leading edge. This is the first time a UFO has been reliably measured.
Working with that information a team of engineers and scientists determined that no known human engineer-able propulsion system could account for the fantastic performance reported by witnesses statewide that night. This leaves the possibility that a significant percentage of the state was hallucinating — and the simpler explanation that thousands of residents of Arizona observed non-human technology on display.
The National Geographic examination is the latest evidence of a shift toward comprehension in place of denial, an effort to move the very nature of the reports out of the realm of the impossible and into the realm of the conceivable.
As a result, new witnesses are coming forward with accounts deemed too fantastic to be made public in the aftermath of the event. The Phoenix UFO Examiner has already received numerous reports by credible individuals of observations made that evening which correlate well with the known observations and investigative work is underway to document them in detail.
It is estimated that perhaps one in ten people who saw the lights in March of 1997 have added their observation to the growing body of information about the phenomenal mass sightings event.
This wealth of unreported observation, which may well include video or film can be the means by which the Phoenix Lights can be more fully understood.
Anyone witnessing anomalous amber lights in formation or large silent structured craft in the March 13, 1997 timeframe is invited to contact the Phoenix UFO Examiner at firstname.lastname@example.org and add their observation to the growing database of witness reports.

TRACY — The object that we saw on November 23, 2009, between 7:40 and 8 PM was large in size would zigzag left to right and back. The object would rise straight up into the sky and then shoot down and to the right. It flew over us at one point slowly and we were unable to hear any engine of any sort. It would fly into the sky again and then disappear out of sight only to re-appear again within seconds. It lasted about 20 minutes.
Note: Given the erratic movement observed by the witnesses and the photos (aqua colored object) this report is quite intriguing. In the second photo above the enlargement shows that the object has fragmented (separated) into two objects. The photos were taken with a NIKON D60 digital camera. This camera has a maximum resolution of 10.2 mega-pixels. There was no evidence of tampering with these photos. This is the third sighting reported from Tracy in November of 2009.

FIREBAUGH — I was outside answering a phone call on November 14, 2009, when a shooting star caught my attention. When it got closer I thought it was a plane, but it was boomerang shaped and had six lights on the bottom that were all a faded yellow color, like a light bulb. It was very quiet and I could hear it buzzing, it sounded like bees. It was moving north at a constant medium speed. I watched for several minutes and then ran under a canopy for a minute and moved into the garage and I could still hear the buzzing noise. I called my cousin who came outside but she didn’t see it. I felt mesmerized and at the same time I was thinking it was beautiful and terrifying at the same time.
