I'd like to point out one thing about the videotapers that is
generally not known: Kitei and Krzysten had seen lights in the
sky that appeared to them to be over Phoenix (their sighting
lines passed over Phoenix) quite a few times before March 13.

They believed that they were seeing unusual lights and had
videotaped (and Kitei photographed, as well) these lights. So
the reason that Kitei and Krzysten had their cameras available
was these previous sightings... they were always waiting for the
next sighting.

Not so for the viewers of the overhead triangle.

They, one presumes, were caught off guard so to speak. At the
very least, they did not have previous triangle sightings that
would give them an incentive to have their cameras ready in case
of another one.

Krzysten expressed this effect on him of having previous
sightings and videos when he said something like "We've got 'em
this time" - not an exact quote of a statement made while he
vieotaped the 'krzysten arc'.

So, I am disapppointed that no one got a triangle video, but I
am not overly surprised.

In the previous message I mentioned an Air Force Colonel I
talked to who saw the triangle and was flabbergasted -

Now I have spoken to another witness of the triangle:

Fife Symington!

Thanks to my attendance at the press conference today (Nov. 12)
I was able to talk to him for a short time He apparently didn't
realize there was a time gap between the videotaped 'lights' at
10 PM and his sighting. But he was adamant that he didn't see
flares. So I filled him in on the timing difference. But then I
asked him a question about the triangle he saw: could he
describe them?

He said there were indistinct lights associated with the object,
not "sharp" like lights you ordinarily see at night. In his
prepared comments, he wrote that they were "enormous lights" on
a "solid structure" with a "very distinctive leading' edge." He
described it as a "silent", "delta-shaped craft".
