You have got to be kidding me Lynn! Then why did you allow Dr.
Sky, who hosted your book signing event in Scottsdale, AZ,
inform the crowd that the 10:00 PM event was most likely
military flares? I was at that function. Now you are saying that
they could not have been flares?? Which is it?

Or, they do a complete investigation, utilize facts rather than
what they would like to believe!!! It is interesting that almost
all of your sightings took place in the direction of the
Goldwater Range, where military aircraft come from all over to
perform flare dumping campaigns. Yet, that information was not
in your book!!!

>Well what about the mile long triangular craft that everybody

>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 good point. _That_ is the real mystery here. A large
Triangular aircraft moving slowly through Phoenix at around 8:30
PM. Not the obvious flare lights at 10:00 PM.

>A number of people saw these orbs detach from the main object

A number of people saw the lights blink out after just a few
minutes. Why isn't that in your book? That is the problem with
witness testimony concerning night-time UFO events. People see
different things, all of our perceptions are different because
human emotions are tied in to them.

You have the credible studies of Tom King and Bruce M. that say
the 10:00 PM event was flares. Yet you dismiss that too?

>That's up to them.

You don't think that flare drops are not common worldwide? They
happen on an almost daily occurrence. Just check out Peter
Davenport's website.

Now I will be the first to admit that not all of these sightings
are not flares. Yet, how do you distinguish military flare
lights or a UFO sighting?
