"If the intelligence of these creatures were sufficiently superior to ours, they might choose to have little, if any, contact with us." - Brookings Institution report on extraterrestrial life. Quoted in New York Times, December 15, 1960.
March 13, 1997 is a standout event in UFO case history. Numerous witnesses reported seeing a large pattern of unexplained lights over Phoenix. Adding a helpful footnote in this case, a new witness has come forward to share his story. His sighting includes details regarding a mile wide object over Prescott, Arizona during that same time frame.
This animation recreates what the witness saw above Prescott, AZ. in 1997.
Nice bonus in the comments section. Another witness affirms the animation as a good representation of what he also saw while rafting on the Verde River. Here is his post:
-- "My brother and I saw that boomerang shaped craft during the daytime on the 13th of March 1997 about an hour before sunset. We were rafting on the Verde River approximately 5 river miles upstream from Horseshoe Dam.
We were on the last day of a four day river trip that started out in Camp Verde and ended at the boat dock at Horseshoe Lake on the 14th.
The “Boomerang” was Silver in color with NO lights, corners, lines, windows, doors, hatches, ports, hard angles of any kind.
The skin appeared to be as smooth and rounded as a blob of mercury from a broken thermometer. It was directly above our heads at 12 o’clock. I would guess it to of been about a mile high. It wasn’t flying and was totally silent. It was stationary in the air and didn’t move any direction at all.
We watched it for a half hour or so, it did not move or make a sound.
As we were both wet, cold and it was starting to get dark we had to stop looking at it to go about gathering fire wood and setting up camp before we lost all light. It was gone about 20 minutes later. Neither of us saw it leave.
I looked up after setting up my tent and it was gone.
What was truly amazing about the “Boomerang” was its size. It was really, really BIG. REALLY BIG!!! Yours is the only drawing of the “Phoenix Lights” that comes close to what I saw. Thanks for the video, Bill" --

I am looking forward to seeing Ariel Phenomenon. Currently in post production, the film further examines the incident and re-interviews the children - now adults - who in 1994, experienced an extraordinary event. An event many in the world, even now, are challenged to fathom.
