I read it and found it an interesting read. I commend you for your combined experimental and analytical approach. However, I do not agree with it... at least as applied to the famous Phoenix Lights footage. I also wonder about the accuracy of some of your suggestions as to how to make and ignite gas bag balloons. Since I have never made one myself I would have to say that _some_ of what you have proposed for creating a balloon, such as the "time delayed method" (so no one sees a light as the balloon rises to its buoyant level, seems unlikely to me. But, to return to the Phoenix lights themselves, as one can learn from my web page, careful analysis of the video shows that the lights *did* move downward and _did_ move slowly sideways (to the left) and the triangulations showed they were many tens of miles away (60-80). You suggest that they were close because they were over Phoenix and bright enough to be videotaped. Perhaps you don't realize that even if they had been over the city of Phoenix they would have been 5-10 miles from one of the videotapers (Krzysten) and perhaps 30 miles from another (Rairdon), yet the images appear equally bright in the videos. I don't believe the lights were hoax devices but nevertheless they would have some characteristics common to the hoax balloons you suggest, if they were, as I suggest (and others before me) that they were distant parahute borne bright military flares.
