The Phoenix Lights – Tucson 1997
The array of lights that I saw over Tucson on 11/11/07 reminded me of my experience in March of 1997 when the Phoenix boomerang glided over the state. It was 10 PM on a Sunday night. A jet pilot from Davis- Monthan Air force Base had left the landing pattern and headed for the Rocky Mountains and I was looking in that direction to the east. There was a glowing golden light hanging in the sky so I watched it thinking that it was probably the headlight of an oncoming plane. It hovered in the sky for a long time and it seemed to take forever to travel to where I was. As it approached, there was no sound. It finally floated by where I standing out in the parking lot, it was low overhead and not symmetrical. The lights were red and white and too large to be airplane lights, it was an unsymmetrical array and not in sharp focus. The effect was as if the lights were behind a very thick window of plexiglass, appearing rather diffuse. Just as I thought that there should be some blinking beacon lights on the craft, one red light blinked out. When it came back on, it shot up in a northwestern direction and took off – not a normal blinking beacon light! It took its time to glide by and it headed to the west. As it joined with planes on the approach to Tucson International Airport, I laughed out loud because it was mimicking an aircraft in the landing pattern even though it was traveling so slowly.
Since that experience, I always observe the Air Force jets very carefully. They sometimes have after-burners that glow at night and they zoom by very quickly and loudly. The night that I saw the array of lights, I was outside for a long time watching it. It took a very long time to cross the sky from the east to the western side of Tucson. It was very similar to the diffuse array of lights that buzzed my taxi on the night of Nov. 11, 2007. There were many other UFO sightings in Arizona during that week.
