One of the most publicized cases of an extraterrestrial phenomenon occurred on March 13, 1997. It was called the Phoenix lights.
At 7:30 p.m., a gigantic light formation could be seen from Nevada to Tucson, Arizona, on an area of 480 kilometers. Millions of people observed the phenomenon which was filmed and photographed. The formation was hexagonal, the lights were white, and headed towards the city of Pheonix.
After a few minutes, the lights moved in a formation that had the shape of the letter V. Everything happened in the most perfect silence.
At 10 p.m., the lights reach over Phoenix.
The controllers at the airport control tower observed this phenomenon with the naked eye but did not register any image on the radars.
The lights positioned themselves over the city of Phoenix, where they stayed for 15 minutes. The lights were estimated to be at an altitude of 1500 meters. A short time later, an American West pilot called the control tower to report the existence of nine bright objects over the city of Phoenix.
During this time, Phoenix police received thousands of phone calls from people panicking about what they had seen. The American authorities assured the population that it was the lights of some planes. As is known, an airplane cannot stand still silently for 15 minutes.
Arizona Governor Fife Symington held a press conference the day after the incident. To downplay the case, he began his speech with, I found the culprit!
A person disguised as an alien appeared from behind him. The joke was not accepted by journalists who knew that something serious had happened and were waiting for appropriate explanations.
11 years later, he went back on his statement, saying that the flying objects came from another world. The phenomenon of 1997 was repeated in 1998, 2000, 2001, and 2006. And in these cases, the US military did not give any explanation.
