Have the Phoenix Lights returned? Maybe, maybe not.. but in the words of one stunned onlooker, “those are not fuckin’ flares!”
According to YouTube uploader CenaFnSucks (dude, Cena’s won like 20 championships), the weird sets of triangular lights were filmed on Friday night at around 10:50PM in South Phoenix.
“My brother recorded this with the last of his phone battery,” he wrote in the video description. “Apologies for the language. I called the Luke Air Force Base command center and was told there were no flare tests tonight.”
CFS claims that his brother-in-law was the one who managed to capture the “really bright” lights after noticing about 20 of them moving slowly through the northern sky. This clip was all he managed to grab before his cell phone died.
“The video was taken around 32nd st. and Baseline by the Legacy Golf Resort,” he told Reddit. “we’ve grown up near Sky Harbor all of our lives. I firmly believe my brother would not freak out like this if he even had the slightest indication these were conventional aircraft.”
The first appearance of the Phoenix Lights in 1997 was arguably one of the most publicized and important UFO sightings ever, having been witnessed by thousands of credible onlookers, including the governor of Arizona. The military has long argued that what people saw were simply flares from an unannounced training exercise, but eyewitnesses are quick to point out the many inconsistencies in that story.
