Your right, it doesn't entirely resolve the issue as these other times
are quoted in the Arizona Republic and Lt. Keith Shepherd has been
re-assigned and all calls pertaining to this event have been referred
to Lt. LeMarco (757) 764-5007 at Langley.

However, we have shown that the lights videotaped at 10:00 p.m.
were north of the Estrella Mts and not on the test range.
They were not the bright magenesium flares reported by the
National Guard.  They were also seen at other times in
horizontal flight.

One more note:  We have no reports from Tucson, Casa Grande,
or Gila Bend reporting the flares that night.  None.  Bright
flares of this type, seen for 150 miles should have been reported
in those areas and yet we have yet to find one witness
to these National Guard flares.  Strange.
