Location of Sighting: Imperial, California
Date of Sighting: November, 1997
Time of Sighting: Evening
Description: The Phoenix Lights in March 13,1997 was debunked by Governor Symington. I felt that the public was duped. My wife, #2 Daughter and I were outside lying on our trampoline in November of 1997 and we were looking at the stars. It was a moonless night an I could see an object in the sky moving west to east. The background stars showed the Carpenter Square shape. All 3 of us saw the object. We live near a N.A.F base and about 400 miles west of Phoenix. Google maps showed the same object over a Moon Crater around 2012.
Response From Witness: I just read your requests for detail. I live in Imperial, California which is about 8 miles east of Naval Air Facility El Centro. N.A.F. El Centro is where the Blue Angels train before their show season starts. What my family and I saw had 7 round lights on the underside. The object flew silently and due to the dark sky altitude and size could not be determined. Years ago I told a Retired Lt. Commander about this object at his home in Yuma. The commander would remember if you needed confirmation of my details.Note to Commenters: If you are reporting a sighting, be sure to include the location (city, state, country), date and time of your sighting.
