Two residents of Goodyear believe they saw the legendary Phoenix Lights on Tuesday above the regional park, Estrella Mountains. Kerrie and Jeff Zakaras said they saw like a headlight but hovering from their viewpoint. The couple though still unbelievers despite witnessing the strange sighting.
Meanwhile, paranormal and sci-fi writer Alejandro Rojas believes in UFOs, but he thinks that the recent observation did not involve space aliens.
Rojas believes that they were flares from the military. Indeed, Luke Air Force Base officials confirmed that they were having a training that time of the evening, involving the use of flares.
Rojas said that while this particular case looks to be military exercises, there were still many mysterious cases. He explained that many UFO sightings in the area still left unsolved and no explanation yet even after careful investigation. Rojas said that he is a believer and mysterious activities out there still waiting for an answer.
The couple may be right that they only videotaped flares, but they were possibly wrong when they said they spotted the same event from the famous UFO Phoenix Lights that happened on March 13, 1997, Tuesday, in Phoenix, Arizona and Sonora, Mexico.
Thousands of people reported lights with varying descriptions between 7:30 PM and 10:30 PM (MST). It is believed that the incident involved two distinct events namely a triangular formation of lights spotted to pass above the state and a series of hovering lights seen in the Phoenix area.
