The pics are marginal at best but lots of people reported seeing the same thing and Phoenix is a hotbed of UFO activity.

if it was aliens with the kind of aviation technology that we are supposedly observing, then there is no way they would let themselves be seen like that unless they had made official contact with our governing bodies. personally I believe that its just the government botching things up as usual...

yeah - the fact that these lights appeared next to a load of air bases, including military ones, and that (correct me if im wrong) the classified information act or equivalent thereof in the states means that a plane (or four) being tested doesnt have to be publicly made aware of to the press for several decades.


Coincidence?

(I live on phoenix, heard about these long time ago. its a reoccurring thing)
If it was specks of dirt/dust on the camera.. then all of the hundreds of people who saw them must have been looking through the same camera.

Take into consideration all the possibilities for both sides.
One side, it could be an alien spacecraft monitoring us for whatever research they are doing.

Second side saying its a hoax, or a phenomena that is caused by moon rays reflecting off poo on the ground/ stuff in the air. If this is the case it only happens once or twice a year/ every so many years, and its always in the same shape/ location.
Its an extremely small chance that we are alone inside this giant universe, and its frankly kinda stupid to think that we are.

Take into consideration all the facts of the story..
Am i missing anything?

I really doubt those are aliens.
Just wondering but why does everyone assume that if there were aliens they would be smarter than us. Yeah humans are stupid but it`s possible aliens could be more stupid.

I think there`s something out there. I mean we can`t be the only ones in this universe. The universe is infinate. There has to be something like us out there. But if I saw those lights I would be freaked out.

`Near the deer valley airport.`
Mhmm, so nobody thought `Oh, hey, that`s a jet! Jets always have red blinking lights at night! Of course.`
Psh, stupids.

Eh, the videos I`ve seen show a much clearer image. I was out in Phoenix last night when this all happened, but I wasn`t outside...too bad. I was around for the Phoenix lights as well...but missed those. God, I fail.

When I was living near phoenix, I was a student pilot flying out at Buckeye airport about a year ago. I saw those thing every once and a while, usually to the south. When I asked around, I eventually learned they were Air force flares. Made sense; the lights would always appear south of the airport where a restricted (or was it prohibited?) military airspace is located.

It`s probably what the phoenix lights are too, but you never know...

I like how the lady was "Stop whistling" and her co-anchor starts whistling louder, made me chuckle.

I never truly believed any of these things, but I`m open to the possibility. I just need some more concrete proof. Same goes for religion and why all reality tv stars shouldn`t be shot. I just need need some valid reasons.

Some theories say the what we call UFOs and Aliens are actually what the bible describes as Satan and Demons. Not necessarily what I believe, but it`s interesting to wonder about all the possibilities.

Hey I live in phoenix and we see this stuff all the time. But they had really suck ass pictures. The are videos of these "lights" that are way better and you can tell they aren`t dust spots. Channel 10 news sucks for quality. lets just say some really weired things fly around out here and if you want to see better video, rather than stills, look them up on youtube.
(I don`t know/care what the hell it is)

i did not see anything except a couple dots of light at the end. I spent an hour one time looking at ufo postings on youtube. The whole time I saw nothing that conclusively was a flying saucer/cigar. People believe what they want to believe on the flimsiest of evidence. Ask yourself why has there not ever been conclusive crystal clear video of alien spacecraft, or abominable snowmen, or ghosts? I`m not asking for much just something as clear as video taping my car from 15 feet away and holding the footage for a few minutes - instead of blurry; lights, pie plates, and men walking in ape suits from afar for a few seconds. A whole industry has been built on this inconclusive illusive rubbish.

"Maybe it`s just like walking 5 minutes down the road to... I don`t know. A friends house or to a park or something."

"Or to flash your headlights at the deer in the forest and watch them run in terror. (:"

First to Dainty: You got a good point there lol
And Next to Leesah: That is Exacly What I would Do if I had the power! Scare the little humans and see how far they run!

"i mean if it was a UFO then hell the "aliens" would dominated this earth and make us humans there bitch"
Not necessarily.
What proof is there that all an `alien species` wants to do is take over and destroy other planets?
And Invader Zim does not count. :D"

lol A)i love the show and hell and B)i dont know if there "alien species" to begin with that wants to dominate us.

If there were aliens, why would they come to this hell hole?"
"To laugh at how primitive we are."
Lol Thats exacly my point. If they build a ship and travel how ever far they have to, its a waste of time if you ask me.

"I like the music, it sorta adds to the affect."

Because the sound of a clown laughing histerically in the background would give a different one?

i live by the deer valley airport and saw this, so idk i would like to think it was a ufo. but, maybe the only aliens we have here are fro a near by planet called Mexico.And i also would like to think if there are real aliens, i would hope they had better things to do then visit this planet of dumb chimps(i.e. humans)

whilst I think the odds of us being totally alone in the universe are slim to non, I dont think that I could be bothered flying billions of light years just to put on a light show for a bunch of redneck hicks with a penchant for anal probing!

Then again, Bush got into office twice so I suppose stranger things have happened!

Dust on the camera, dude. I`m a professional and use an SLR a lot of the time, and I get similar specs when I don`t clean my lens well enough..

Even if it were UFOs, I wouldn`t mind. I mean, do we think we`re the only life form in the entire universe? There`s obviously some others out there. Let`s not be selfish. :-)

Who here believes in Aliens? I myself do think theres "something out there" but they can`t be dumb enough to play a light show on the Pheonix area?
