As I understand it, the only report that the lights were seen but
nothing could be picked up on radar is the one made by Bill
Grava, an air traffic controller at Sky Harbor Airport.  However,
Grava states in his interview with Susan Rook on CNN that his
radar coverage was limited to a diameter of 10 miles around the

If, as is generally agreed, the 10 pm lights were at least 5
miles southwest of the airport, then there is no reason to
believe that the 10 pm lights or anything in the air associated
with them would have been close enough to have been picked up on
Sky Harbor's radar.

At least in relation to the 10 pm lights, "nothing on radar"
seems to be a myth, which should be discarded.

Has the flight path of the V-shaped object(s) that flew overhead
1 1/2 hours earlier been established well enough to know for sure
whether or not they were close enough to Sky Harbor to have been
picked up on radar?
