One of the most widespread UFO accounts in the world was right here in Arizona. It was an event witnessed by thousands across the state. On March 13th, 1997 the first report came in from Nevada, then as the minutes passed they continued following the craft southward from Paulden, AZ to Prescott then Dewey to Phoenix and finally Tucson. The lights appeared around 8:15 and disappeared by 8:45.
A similar set of 9 lights appeared in 2007 behind the Sierra Estrellas, but Luke claimed these were flares dropped by A-10′s. Later one of the pilots who participated in the drop came forward publicly.
No official story for the first set of lights was ever released, making it one of Arizona’s great mysteries.
