Did Satellites Image Phoenix Lights?

Subject: Did Satellites Image Phoenix Lights?


I have reported previously that I had gotten word that NORAD
had detected a "fast walker" on March 13th.  Some satellite
tracked an unknown intruder into US air space.

Also previously reported was the interview with the president
of American Computer Company, Jack Schulman, talked about
an Air Force satellite that had been disabled on March 13th.

This is a follow-up on those reports and I have Linda Howe
checking into this further.

One of our prime Phoenix witnesses, Mike Fortson, is responsible
for tracking this story.

The Army wants to shoot down an Air Force satellite with its
MIRACL laser installed at a sprawling base in the New Mexico
desert.  The target is the Miniature Sensor Technology Integration
satellite, MSTI-3.  The Air Force craft is the third in a series
of research satellites meant to improve the tracking of missiles
from space.  The satellite, about the size of a refrigerator
and weighing 450 pounds, has telescopes and cameras for observing
hot rockets as well as the cool Earth, its imaging systems working
like those in spy satellites.

The camera on the satellite can see objects on the ground as small
as 30 feet across.

The satellite maker -- SPECTRUM ASTRO -- right here in Gilbert,
Arizona opposes having MIRACL fire its beam at the $60 million craft.

Mike Fortson called Spectrum Astro to talk with one of the engineers.
This engineer confirmed that on MARCH 13, the MSTI-3's batteries
suddenly went "dead" but now are functioning properly and he
cannot understand why the Army wants to destroy this satellite.

We now know that the first sighting in Arizona on March 13th was
at 5:30 pm mst in Crown King, AZ.  Witnesses saw 3 solid V-shaped
craft and also stated that 3 F-16 fighterss came from the south
only to see the V's disappear and reappear minutes later when
the fighters left the area!

Admittedly, there are gaps in our knowledge of events on that day,
but new information is beginning to paint a picture of something
extraordinary.  I hope to follow up this report with more later.

Linda may be reporting on these developments on DREAMLAND with
Art Bell this Sunday.
