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.
