I don't know what you mean by this. The flares are fixed in size
by the metal tubes housing the fuel that is burned. Are you
trying to say thatthe flares change their size with altitude?

You mean. how come no one in Phoenix reported the lights?
Probably dropped at a lower altitude. The high altitude drops or
"dumps" may have been under special circumstances. On the other
hand, from analyzing the 1998 lights I would conclude that some
flare are dropped at high altitude every year.
