Dr. Lynne Kitei devoted her time studying the event for many years. She recalled that most people spotted strange lights in a V formation flying at rooftop level. She depicted that the formation of lights was a mile to two-mile wide. She continued that some said they saw a craft while others said they spotted orbs detach from the main environment.
Kitei said that it is surprising that after 16 years, the known UFO sighting is still not solved. On initial reports, Luke Air Force Base said that military planes or aircraft have nothing to do with the unusual lights. However, this story was changed about a month after the incident.
The flare theory surfaced with explanation that the Phoenix Lights were actually caused by a military exercise.
However, just recently Kitei claimed to obtain documents dated May 1, 1997 indicating that the Luke Air force Base had no relation to mysterious lights over Phoenix.
Kitei has been doing research about the mass sighting for the last 16 years. Together with other experts, she tours in many areas to show the “Phoenix Lights Documentary.”
