Greeting Listers,

KECY-TV Yuma/El Centro's Program Director, Adriana Sanchez, has
come forward to share her Phoenix Lights experience; her account
is notable given the 11:00 hour as well as the location of
southwest Arizona - Yuma. Possibly the same craft that Capt.
Trig Johnston and family witnessed at 10:20 pm.

Phoenix Lights: Another Witness Recounts Her UFO Experience

[Note-Eyewitness, and whom I call "Ufologist by fate", as well
as an expert on the Phoenix Lights Incident, Mike Fortson
relates that this is the first account (in writing) south of
Casa Grande, as well as the first occurring at approximately
11:00 pm. Previously, the latest confirmed account (10:20 pm) of
the immense V-shaped craft was by pilot Capt. Trig Johnston .

The flare-drop was at 10:00 pm, and the main sighting of the
immense V-shaped craft was at 8:30 pm.


It's hard to believe it's been almost 10 years. I still
remember it. How can one forget.

My witness account began one night as I was leaving my job at a
TV station in Yuma, AZ (different than the current station I
work at). It was shift work=85M-F 3p-11pm. That means I was out
the door between 11p and 11:15pm. As I was leaving, the newsroom
was empty except for the weatherman. I said goodbye and opened
door to go into the back parking lot. I noticed a row of evenly
spaced bright white lights just South East of the station. I
remember thinking "Wow, did they add streets lights to 16th
Street (Hwy 95)?" On the way to my car I tried to remember if
they had always been there.

I decided to check them out since it was only a couple of blocks
away. As I drove out of the parking lot I knew they weren't
streetlights. They were now a little higher than before but
still close to the ground. I drove in their direction and could
now see they were in the sky. Seven evenly spaced white lights
in a "V" formation moving very slowly... really graceful. I
tried to figure out what they were. Crop duster? Harriers? I
turned south and tried to follow it so I could make out what it
was. I rolled down my window to listen but it made no sound. I
ruled out crop duster since the lights indicated it was at least
as big as an entire field. I ruled out seven evenly spaced
Harriers since there was absolutely no sound. I stared at the
lights and even tough I was alone in my car, said out loud "What
is that?" I couldn't tell if it was seven separate objects or
one object with 7 lights. If it was several objects they moved
in perfect formation=85evenly spaced and moved at the same time.

I had driven less than a mile and decided to make a U-turn and
raced back to the TV station so I could catch the weatherman
before he left. He had a pilot's license and would certainly
know what this is. As I drove back I kept glancing over my right
shoulder to keep an eye on it. I didn't want to lose sight of
it. As I turned into the parking lot of the TV station, it was
gone. "No no no no nooooo" I remember thinking.

I turned back tried to find it again. I drove for a few miles
but it was gone. I don't feel that the lights sped off. I think
they just disappeared. From the time I opened the door to the
time I lost sight of the lights, the whole thing lasted about 5
minutes. I was disappointed that I didn't find out what it was
but I let it go.

About a year later I was watching a show about UFO sightings. I
saw the Phoenix Lights story and said "Oh my God! That's what I
saw!" Even though I had never given the lights another thought,
I was thrilled to see that other people were questioning what
they were because I still am curious to find out what they were.

I've read that some have downplayed these as being flares. But
flares fall downward. What I saw was almost hovering, moving
away and slightly upward. I've read that some reports say the
lights were amber in color. The ones I saw were bright white yet
they were not illuminating anything on the ground. I am excited
to find out what it was that I saw but after ten years I doubt
we will ever know. Even if I was proven to me that it was a
government aircraft, I would be satisfied. I'm just not
satisfied with stories of them being flares. I know they
weren't. I can't tell you for sure what it was I saw, but I can
tell you for sure what I didn't see=85.and I didn't see flares.
