The Phoenix Lights 13 Years Later

"It was enormous and inexplicable. Who knows where it came from? A lot of people saw it, and I saw it too." Former Arizona Governor Fife Symington

Over the last several years, since the Phoenix Lights incident on March 13th in 1997, there have been reports of more Phoenix lights. But nothing compares to the formations that flew over Arizona for hours 13 years ago.

Thousands saw those lights and some thought that perhaps it was an alien invasion.

After the incident, Arizona's Governor Fife Symington made a joke about the Phoenix Lights by having a costumed alien appear at a press conference. Later in 2007, Symington admits that the Lights were no joke.

"....It was dramatic. And it couldn't have been flares because it was too symmetrical." The former Arizona Governor revealed the object to be a "craft of unknown origin."

While Symington hasn't been the only political figure in Arizona to comment on the Phoenix Lights, he stands alone in his admission that they were more than just flares. When asked to comment on the Phoenix Lights in 2000, Senator John McCain said, "That has never been fully explained." He also quickly added, "But I have to tell you that I do not have any evidence whatsoever of aliens or UFOs...." Source: The Truth is Out There

Fife Symington says he feels sorry for making a joke of the incident but he felt he needed to do something to alleviate the hysteria that was developing.

I believe Symington is not coming completely clean on why he made a joke of the whole Phoenix Lights incident.

Former Phoenix Councilwoman Frances Barwood made a serious effort to have the Lights investigated and she says she was stonewalled in every way by various government agencies.

It is likely that Symington didn't just decide to make a mockery of the Lights, but that he was told by other highly placed government officials to use the same propaganda ploy that had been used for decades. He was likely told to make a joke of the Phoenix Lights because ridicule has been an effective tool to shut down serious UFO inquiry.

Still no matter how many government officials, astronauts, pilots, police officers and other credible witnesses recount amazing UFO encounters and no matter how many government documents also recount amazing incidences, there will always be those that deny the truth that our skies are being occupied by flying systems that go beyond human control.

The United States government can continue to lie about Roswell, the Phoenix Lights, the Stephensville Sightings, and the mass of sightings that are reported yearly.

The alien entities don't likely care either way. Either way, the ETs will continue to operate in plain sight.
