I am surprised there is so much heat and so little light in this
discussion, but as you know the flare explanation was a
boondoggle from the beginning. I also filed an FOIA request to
the National Guard in Maryland and received papers back that
indicated they had released 162 flares on March 12 and March
13th on the North Tac range of the LUU-2 variety which burns
bright white and smokes. The recent pilot's statement that
flares were dumped on the Barry Goldwater range near Gila Bend
places them a distance from Dr. Bruce Macabbee's triangulated
position near Ajo, Az.

Mike Krzysten and I agree that what we saw through telescopes
was round, amber, non-flickering, non-glowing (no aureola), and
stayed centered in the eyepiece over the duration of the
sighting. The first light - a double - appeared at 9:45 pm then
again in the same position at 10 PM on March 13th. Similar
lights appeared to the east of Phoenix on March 12th (opposite
direction from the range).

These same lights were seen attached to the giant triangle at
8:30 p.m. and one was deployed westward and later returned to
redock with the triangle.

I have watched flares on chutes at night in the deserts of
California and one could easily see the smoke and flickering
fire as they descended, and this from about the distance from
Phoenix to the North Tac ranged.

Other video I have shows these lights are orbs at closer range
and these orbs have sharp edges and no glow around them. The
LUU-2 flares are designed to glow brightly to illuminate tanks
and equipment on the ground for the tank-busting A-10s.

People will believe what the want to believe, but they will miss
the connection between the triangles and the orbs which has
especially become evident in British sightings.
