Mystery Lights Changed Doc's Life

Strange lights in the sky changed Lynne Kitei's life forever.

Over a two-year period, Kitei, the chief clinical consultant at
the Vital Imaging and Wellness Center at the Arizona Heart
Institute, saw strange lights near her Paradise Valley home
three times.

The first was in February 1995, when "three heavenly lights"
appeared in midair at what she estimated was about 100 yards
from her home. Then she saw them again on Jan. 22, 1997, and on
March 13, 1997. Kitei was looking through her bedroom window
when she saw what she describes as orbs in a triangular
formation passing over Phoenix.

Kitei was one of thousands of witnesses to observe the March 13
sighting, which later became known as "the Phoenix lights." She
took photographs and video of the lights, and her footage aired
on local television stations, the Discovery Channel and major
news networks. She appeared on radio and other talk shows with
other witnesses but did so under the name Dr. Lynne or Dr. X,
concealing her identity because she said she wanted to preserve
her privacy and credibility as a doctor.

A Valley teenager looking through a telescope that March 1997
evening said it looked like a formation of planes, perhaps
vintage ones headed to an air show in southern Arizona. The
Arizona Air National Guard said the other lights were flares
from a night training exercise.

Whatever they were, Kitei she couldn't forget it. So for seven
years, she did her homework, compiling information about
unidentified flying objects, or UFOs. She said she wanted to be
a "messenger" to educate the public about what she considers a
vital issue.

"It's time to get this data out in the open so that a journey to
a new reality will begin," she said. "As with all unexplained
phenomena, the message is 'Wake up' before we destroy our world.
Let the data speak for itself. Once readers read my book, they
can make their own conclusions as to what it was and what it all

She will promote her book, The Phoenix Lights, at 7 tonight at
the Borders bookstore at the Biltmore Fashion Park. She will
give a short lecture and video presentation and sign copies.
More signings are scheduled through the Valley into late April.

Kitei said she initially didn't want to come forward but decided
she couldn't let her research just sit in a drawer.

Valley resident and author Paul Perry wrote the foreword to the
book and said Kitei worked with scientists, engineers, air-
traffic controllers, university professors and photo analysis
experts to try to explain what she and many others had seen.

But don't look for clear-cut answers in her book. Kitei doesn't
really say what she believes the phenomena to be.
