Dr. James R. Bartzen said he has indisputable proof that the so-called "Phoenix Lights" were a product of secret man-made technology being shielded from the public.
He works at the Russian-American Institute of Space Science.
"There are no theories, there is only evidence," Bartzen told ABC15. "The government desires people to believe in space aliens so they don't have to reveal the technologies that both we and the Russians have."
Bartzen said he has been involved with the space agencies in both the U.S. and Russia for decades, and that his involvement led him to learn what these vehicles in the sky were, man-made spacecrafts.
"The evidence was never disclosed," he said.
However, now that the space agencies of the world are joining together in space travel, he said that evidence can be released.
Bartzen plans to detail his argument and share his proof on Saturday, July 19th in Sedona. For more information, click here.
The 'Phoenix Lights' of different descriptions were seen on the night of March 13th, 1997.
Some said they saw a triangular formation pass over their homes. Others saw a series of stationary lights in a long line.
The United States Air Force later identified the lights as flares from the Barry Goldwater Range, but many continue to believe differently.
