Valid questions you ask Don. I personally do not think the
flares were dropped 60-80 miles away. If they were seen from
that distance, then the Phoenix Lights event would be common
place and not such a surprise to the local residents as this,
and other similar events at the time. They must have been
closer. I am thinking that the influx of large UFO's around the
area caused the Mil. to take this action so as to keep the UFO
away from the eyes of the population of Phoenix. If this was the
purpose, than illumination of the ground was not a factor. Refer
to my original post dated, 19-3-04 with this link to my article:


Have your read it? If no more close or similar flare activity
over the last 4 years, then you may sway your thoughts my way.
That could be proof. I say 4 years because that appears to be
the time when the bulk of UFO Disc activity drematically
diminished. But that is another story.

The flares did their job well. The news headlines were not
featuring the large UFO "V" craft. Imagine if they were.

A decoy for the UFO?
