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.

ROSARIO — A couple traveling along the river in the area north of Rosario on October 8, 2009, claimed to have seen an animal being abducted by a flying saucer on October 8, 2009. Sergio and Laura, when traveling along the coast near Puerto Gaboto said, “We believe we saw a cow in the sky being abducted by a UFO and later they both vanished”, they said. (Cow is White Object at left?)
Michael Cohen reports, “A wave of mass UFO sightings across South America is currently occurring, leaving bewildered witnesses wondering if indeed beings from other worlds might be visiting Planet Earth.” Stunned residents of towns and villages across Argentina, Peru and Chile as well as other nations have seen multiple objects ranging from ‘mother ships’ to ‘Cigar-shaped’ crafts over the last week alone. In at least one case a power outage accompanied such an event. The event receiving the most publicity occurred in Salta, Argentina where at 2 AM on November 27 the city plunged into complete darkness as it suffered a total electrical failure. Allegedly intense heat engulfed the town and a huge ‘mother ship’ type UFO was seen above the town studded with flashing lights. It is claimed that the town electricity failed at the moment the UFO was seen to pass over the power plant. Hundreds of individuals witnessed this craft. UFO researchers and government authorities have descended on the area to investigate this incredible occurrence.
LIMA, PERU — Hundreds of witnesses observed seven seemingly other-worldly craft moving across the skies above their city. However some witnesses and UFO researchers have suggested that these might have been air balloons. In the town of Iquique in Chile a bizarre, glowing, multicolored, cylindrical object was seen by residents last Friday. This object was also observed by dozens of locals who saw it vanish above cloud cover after moving over the city for at least half and hour. Finally, earlier in the month a UFO was seen by thousands of pilgrims to a spot where an apparition of The Virgin Mary is believed to have taken place. The UFO was filmed in this case and handed over to investigators but has not been made public. These astonishing events have been picked up by media outlets: Has first contact with aliens begun?
