The original TV news report said that a pilot departing Skyharbor
around 8:30 PM looked above him to see a V-shaped formation of
lights and radioed the tower to see if the tower controller
had anything on radar.  As I understand it, most aircraft are
identified on their radar by transponder signals, but they have
other radar that reflects waves from an object.  The controller
replied they had nothing on radar.

The later event seen by Bill Grava was a formation of amber lights
behind South Mountain at around 10 PM and I do not think he found
any radar returns for these lights.  This formation has now been
shown to be in the valley between South Mtn. and the Estrellas.
