Subject: The Phoenix Lights - Man Made Hoax Devices

The following is a short extract from an interview conducted
between myself and Dr. Lynne Kitei, author of the book The
Phoenix Lights, for UFO Review, a new on-line e-zine to be
launched soon. The full interview will appear in the first
edition, TBA.

Interview date: 24th. March 04.

Time: 11:00 pm GMT.

SM is Stuart Miller

LK is Doctor Lynne Kitei.

SM: What is your reaction these days, now, when you still hear
the word "flares" mentioned in connection with the lights?

LK:  Oh boy, that does get my ire. First of all, they weren't
flares! That I know. It's funny you should mention that because
last night, the three hour show (Coast To Coast 3/24/04) went so
well and we were getting such wonderful callers, from all over
the United States. It was just really amazing that all these
people were up in the middle of the night listening to this and
it was really comforting. I ve had so much positive
reinforcement. The last caller though, this guy says, I know you
were looking south so it must have been flares on the Barry
Goldwater range .

Well, besides the fact that if you just look at the data,
there's no way these were flares because they don't act like
flares. They defy physics, as we know it, as I've been told by
numerous optical specialists. Flares cannot stay in a straight
line, they cannot form formations, for sure, they're very
erratic, they're white not amber. They have giant slope trails
and they reflect. That's what they're used for; to reflect light
on air.

This didn't come up until a month after the USA Today article,
when I know the media was just badgering, as we were, for an
explanation and so they had to come up with something. The only
real hard data that they had were the four videos that night of
us looking south, so whoever thought it up was certainly very
bright and could make a case because the video itself does not
do it justice. It does not do it justice at all because they re
white in the video; they flicker in the video which they do not
do in real life. They appear smaller as well.

People that want to feed into that explanation, do. Either
they're fearful of the real explanation or they just can't deal
with thinking about it and it's just easier for them to slip
into a logical explanation. What's funny to me is that if you
look at the data, there's just no way. It's comical now when
somebody brings it up and some people are very hard set on it, I
have to tell you. Like this guy on the radio programme last
night. I also received an e-mail to that affect from a guy
that's with the Snowbirds somewhere. These are the people that
really don't look at the data. They hear an explanation; they
jump on it and say, That's fine.

Well what about the mile long triangular craft that everybody
saw. What about that phenomena? To me it's just as important if
not more so because thousands of people saw that as well, or
lights attached to something, which is very similar to what I
photographed, obviously.

A number of people saw these orbs detach from the main object
and go out into the environment, which maybe was what happened
in 95 to my husband and I, and then re-dock. That we didn't find
out about until over a year, in December, after the mass
sighting when I went back to the negatives and tried to find the
one with four lights, which I realised was actually from 95. It
shows quite clearly that when the closed orbs were disappearing,
and when there were three orbs there originally, one on top and
two underneath, there were six lights in the background. Two of
them disappeared as the top orb disappeared so that we saw four
in the background when two were there. Then when there's only
one orb, there's two in the background. So the same formation in
the same location, disappearing in the background when we re
seeing the closed orbs as well. It' s a little too coincidental.

I can get into this for a while but the bottom line is it s
happening world wide and other countries are much more open to
it as well. The flare theory is frustrating to me only in the
fact that some people feed into it. That's OK if that gives them
peace. Everybody in their own time. If that explanation is
justified in their own mind and they can live with that, OK.
That's up to them.
