- A new wave of UFO sightings are underway
in Arizona and two mass sightings have occurred within the last week.
- 1/11/98 Sunday afternoon after the rain
stopped I noticed some strange silvery blinking objects moving slowly in
the sky. I attempted to videotape these objects with my new Super camera
but it only resulted in a game of "caught me if you can" with
- 1/12/98 Monday night the local news in
Tucson aired a report of an ongoing UFO report. A orange object was on
the Catalina Mt. which is north of Tucson. They speculated it could be
a campfire. Although many people who saw the broadcast said "no way
it was a campfire." Reports of over a thousand people saw and event
with an orange object that night. Among the witnesses were Bob Dean who
was driving up to Phoenix that night. Hours later the orange object was
seen traveling from Tucson to Phoenix at a very high rate of speed. It
was two orange lights closer together traveling in a tight formation. It
pulsed brighter and dimmed at times during the observation. Reports were
coming from all over the southern area of Arizona.
- 1/13/98 Tuesday night a witness of the
March 13 lights saw the orange objects again. She videotaped and photographed
them and reported the sighting to Village Labs. She was told to call if
the lights returned and Village Labs took the evidence to analyze.
- 1/14/98 Wednesday night another mass
sighting occurred, this time near the south Phoenix areas. This sighting
is very complex and will take some time to figure out exactly what happened.
The woman from the previous night saw the lights again and called Village
Labs to report it. People at Village Labs saw the lights and called residents
around the valley to videotape them whatever they were. Thousands of people
saw them and atleast 7 different videotapes captured them. These lights
were similar to the orange objects seen on March 13, 1997. Over 2 dozen
orange lights hung in the air between 7-8 pm. Some people recorded 30 and
others 40 minutes of footage of these orange lights. Even the local news
was out skywatching for them and caught them on tape. What the local news
captured was military flares over the Estrella Mts. They rushed back to
the studio to get this on the air and missed the rest of the show. Geometric
formations of lights in a line appeared and latter a triangle of lights.
The lights appeared in a area of possibly 20 miles in length just south
of the valley.
- The news all came up with different stories
with who was responsible for the "flares" seen that night. All
of them claiming they had solved the mystery. The "Michigan"
Air National Guard and others explanations were the sheriffs department
training in the Gila Bend range.
- The flare theory seemed plausible until
I was able to see the videotapes shot that night. Some of these objects
have characteristics that flares simply do not.
- Objects were videotaped hanging in the
air for over 11 minutes. They do not descend or break formation as flares
do. Some are even seen moving horizontally and not descending at all. One
even appears to travel upward. The videotapes triangulate the objects over
the Estrella Mts. Almost in the same spot as seen on March 13, 1997. This
is outside the military operating area and is illegal to perform flares
- The Michigan Air National guard is claiming
responsibility for the sightings and there is no waste of time to explain
- So what about the flares seen descending
over the Estrellas during the middle of the events that night? This is
still a mystery and does not account for all of the sightings and eyewitness
reports. I do believe the Air force is covering this up and has a better
plan on how to deal with this than they did last year.
- 1/15/98 Thursday night was one of the
biggest UFO stakes in Phoenix history. I called dozens of people all over
the state and had Skywatch on alert to videotape any strange orange light
in the sky.
- I took a position half way between Phoenix
and Casa Grande. We sighted some of these orange lights 15-20 miles west
of our position. We took photographs, and two separate videotapes, including
the ultra high powered Super camera. These objects appeared under 1,000
ft and did not have any sign of smoke. If these were military flares then
we have proof that they are operating well outside their military boundaries.
This is illegal and we will continue to push for people responsible to
be prosecuted if they want to claim these objects are theirs. They could
burn down houses or half the desert with these objects.
- While the media is calling for video
footage from 1/14/98 the investigators are taking their time with the analysis
work before they release them to the local news to do sloppy work like
they did on 1/14/98 nightly news.
- I have been asked to post images from
these events. They will start coming online next week in the OVNI Chapterhouse.
Where the best UFO video in the world can be seen.
