Sighting Reports 1997

Family of Five See Huge Black Triangle With 7 Lights

Date of Sighting: March 13, 1997
Time of Sighting: 8 to 8:30 PM MST
Date Reported: February 18, 2007
Duration of Sighting: 5 to 10 Minute
Location of Sighting: Black Canyon City, Arizona (About 45 Miles North of Phoenix)
Latitude: 34.06 Degrees North
Longitude: 112.15 Degrees West
Number of Witnesses: Five
Number of Witnesses Interviewed: One
Weather: Clear Skies. Visibility 10 Miles.

Description: The witness (father) reported the sighting via telephone call. This was the night of the Phoenix lights and obviously this sighting is one of the several made during that night. The witness stated that his daughter first saw the triangle. He said that the triangle had 7 lights. The triangle covered a 90 degree arc of the sky (50%) and was at zenith (straight overhead). The witness's 3 kids and wife also watched the object. The witness stated that the object exhibited a humming sound. (He said that he had very keen hearing.) The object moved very slowy southward and was lost after nearly 10 minutes. The witness stated that he couldn't understand how the object could have remained airborne because it was moving so slow.

Investigator's Notes: Obviously this case is another sighting of the Pheonix lights. It is important to note that this sighting is not of the alleged flares that were seen about 90 minutes later (around 10 PM). The witness stated that this is the first time that he reported the sighting. He said that his kids are "terrified of aliens."
