I have never said _what_ 'they' are... only that 'they' are and
it is time we get this topic out in the open - address it,
accept it and study it.

I trust that it is also time to ask what triangulation Dr.
Maccabee has been referring to all these years? He is a gifted
scientist and dedicated researcher to be sure, but I was quite
surprised when he professed to have triangulated the mass
sighting videos when I had in fact contacted Dr. Maccabee myself
to attempt a triangulation of a January 1998 sighting, an event
that was very different from the March 13, 1997 sighting. And
just because the 1998 lights 'seemed to be at a distance to Dr.
Maccabee', that revelation didn't confirm anything.

In the 10 years since our historic mass sighting, _no_ one has
reported seeing the anomalous formation of lights behind the
mountain range around the 10 o'clock hour, but there were
definitely reports of strange lights and craft on this side of
the mountain.

Even more compelling and important to note, I learned fairly
quickly after the mass sighting that _no_ one could triangulate
the March 13, 1997 10 pm videos, because the hand full of
videographers took footage over a 30-40 minute span from
different directions.

If you remember, I even tried to procure University based
scientists, including a senior geologist professor from Arizona
State University and others to triangulate our videos and they
all stated that a triangulation of the footage taken during the
mass sighting was impossible.

Another key point, two months before the mass sighting I
captured six 35 mm pictures in a row of the same anomalous and
mile wide phenomena of 6 equidistant orbs "that seemed to be
attached to something" head-on, turning into a V shape, in the
same location.

This sighting [and exact time] was confirm to me the next
morning by Sky Harbor International Airport Air traffic
Controllers who witnessed the same hovering lights in RESTRICTED
AIRSPACE - in _front_ of South Mountain - and slowly moving in
tandem [in a rock solid, mile wide, equidistant array of six
orbs] behind South Mountain [out of sight from their vantage
point in the tower].

The same Air traffic Controllers confirmed the day after the
mass sighting that what we all saw on March 13 at 10 pm was the
SAME phenomena - in the _same_ location once again. Therefore,
since the morning after our mysterious statewide event, we have
had professional verification that the three lights I captured
on video at 10 pm on March 13, 1997, were not behind South
Mountain, but in _front_ of South Mountain, _over_ Phoenix.

I documented these details in my book, but for some reason, they
have been ignored or dismissed through the years.

Besides this curious omission of data that occurred two months
_before_ the mass sighting and 2 months before the Maryland ANG
were in town allegedly sending off flares during Operation
Snowbird while a mile-wide, traveling V-shaped formation of
lights or craft silently and slowly traversed the State at low
altitude for many hours.

Bruce has never addressed the _same_ distant formation of lights
in the _same_ location in the photos I captured of our near
sighting of three amber orbs in a pyramid formation in 1995
[which he presented at the 1999 MUFON International Symposium in
Wash., D.C. as true unknowns].

I know what I saw up close and personal, hovering over our
private, gated, nestled in the mountainside community... and
they definitely were not flares. With all due respect to Dr.
Maccabee, it just doesn't compute.

I will always be grateful for Dr. Maccabee's kindness when I was
overwhelmed by what I had experienced and for taking so much
time with the case. But when he originally released his findings
concerning triangulation, I was saddened that they just added to
the muddy waters that had already been polluted by the military
announcement of flare deployment that night, five long months
after denial that anything was in the air.

I don't doubt that flares might have been sent off to divert
attention away from the true unknowns, but that's not what we
witnessed or photographed. Just take a look at Bill Hamilton and
Tom King's 'arrowhead' footage from around 9:45 pm. Those lights
_are_ attached to something. Again, the data speaks for itself.

As a scientist and experiencer, I have tried diligently to do my
homework and share the data as it has unfolded. I have never
found it productive or in good taste to argue about confusing
and irrelevant pronouncements. I just hope the time is near when
we can move forward in a mature fashion and address the
important issue of what _really_ happened throughout Arizona for
many hours, 10 years ago this March 13th.

As we know...there is much more to the story!


Lynne D. Kitei, M.D.
