The first part of the program was an evaluation of the Arizona UFOs of March 13, 1997. The presentation started with amateur photographer/astronomer Gerry Church, who was on a hillside that night photographing comet Hale-Bopp. He saw the formation of lights come from the NW and proceed southeast. Another individual, by the name of Gary (who fears to lose his job if he does not remain anonymous), states he was in his car with his wife. They saw the formation and he thought it might be jets but then realized jets don’t fly in formation at night. He did not see any navigation lights and there was no sound. These lights also disappeared into the southeast. It is important to note that both these witnesses only describe a formation of lights and did not describe a massive triangle that was reported by some of the witnesses, who received a lot of media attention.
We were then treated to the champion of the Phoenix lights, Dr. Lynne Kitei. She states that she saw the lights over the hills as the “triangle formation” retreated towards the southeast. From what I recall, her videos are of the 10PM event and not the 8PM event. Kitei would later state she is open to any explanation but that seems to be a false statement as several explanations have been presented and she refuses to accept them.
