It did not look or act like flares to the naked eye and in fact
about 70 minutes after this event, another closer light streaked
across the sky which certainly was not flares. Unfortunately,
our equipment was packed up. It is important to note the
following concerning flares.

- The Location is well away from the AFB Test Range and in fact
over a dry and somewhat populated area, so flare drops would be
illegal and dangerous.

- Luke specifically stated they had no excercises in that area
all night.

- The color is inconsistant with flares.

- The duration seems too short for flares.

- The vector is consistant with F-16's I've seen fly in the
area, while the speed and appearance is not. I've never seen
flares dropped in that area because they are prohibited from
doing so.

I am open to the possibility, however the data currently does
not support that scenario IMO.
