I was messing around online, a few days ago, when I noticed a comment made by someone on another website. They mentioned being in Phoenix and being a witness to the 1997 Phoenix Lights.
I took a moment and e-mailed the person, asking them if they would give me a precise account of their experiences. Today they responded and this is what they had to say about it:
My family and I recall that night often. I had only lived in phoenix for about a year, year and a half at most. We were living on williams airforce base when we saw it. We actually saw it from two vantage points though. Williams was the second.I replied to their mail and await their reply.
We were at my aunts house when we first noticed it. That was about 10 miles to the north north west (roughly) near Mesa Dr. and I forget what other road. There was a middle school nearby my cousin went to. Anyway, it was just after sunset, or so it seemed, I was still young. My cousin John Doe spotted it and called me outside. Then i saw it and called out my dad and broth (sic).
It was very large to my memory. Not as high as a jumbo jet or anything, but it was at least 5,000 feet up and massive, in the shape of a V made out of lights. They weren't regular sized lights, they were relatively larger than stadium lights while standing at the bottom of the pole they are mounted on, but thousands of feet in the air and not extremely bright either. They were more like a yellow, old school street lamp as it looks through a rainy fog, maybe even distorted, but you could dismiss that as being mesmerized at the time.
After seeing it and watching it move towards the south (ish) direction, we went back into my aunt's house for five minutes and then left. My dad, my brother, and myself all drove home and we stared out the window at it, as we went. We were headed back south along the freeway, from Mesa Drive towards Williams AFB. (Sorry, I don't know the cross streets, all i know is that it was within about 10 - 15 mins from our house at most)
There was a point where we kind of ended up not under it directly, but we could see less lights off to the side more. (im writing the story on here as it recalls in my head, trying to be honest as possible without deleting things)
We were talking a lot at this point and I don't remember as many visual details. We got home a few minutes later. My dad got inside and made his bed and crap, while John Doe and I were watching.
At this point we were farther away and the vantage point changed. We saw the same V shape, but it wasn't as large. Also, you could see the thickness of the lights now, very thin in comparison to it's size. They looked like those weird battery powered, 'as-seen-on-tv' lights ~ the round ones that you slap or press to turn on. The lights still appeared as if they were under that same fog, the same thickness, but from a further distance.
We watched this thing move all across the city for about 20 - 25 minutes in total, just like we did when they were too far away to judge, but still visible.
I think it was a show, like going to a nocturnal fish or zoo exhibit and just shinning a flashlight down thinking "hey, they are probably too dumb to know whats going on"... maybe they are right, but who knows.
You can archive this, or do whatever you want to do with it. This is the same thing I have said, every time, to the best of my memory.
*Sub Note: I have lived in the desert Southwest of the US for most of my life. New Mexico to be specific. Living here has granted me many special opportunities to experience very strange, but great things.
I have heard the Taos hum; a very strange phenomenon that seems to occur mostly to locals, but a grand many tourists have heard it too. White Sands missile range, labeled a "natural" occurrence by many here, but still very mysterious. Also, this rather strange disappearing military base, located near Ladron Peak, south of Belen, New Mexico...
Let's not forget the S.E.T.I. Program...
Hope this serves you well. Don't be mocking me on it.
This actually makes me have real hope for our race in the future, even if you, I, or our great, great, great, great grandchildren don't live to see it. It means humans weren't some kind of dumb mistake. We, as a race, have some kind of big brother out there, who may be looking out for us.
They may be joining the thread to answer any questions or to discuss this further - depending on how they are about their privacy. Some people see extraordinary things, but don't want potential ridicule, so they keep it to themselves, even though it is true.
I always like learning about alternative possibilities, for the Phoenix Lights, that contrast the 'Official Story'
I'll keep my eyes open and will post further info as I get it. Hopefully they will come in and answer quesitons, etc.
