Flares are not visible in the dark. Flares don't reflect light. Flares are used for radar signals, not for visible light.
Who ever introduced flares into the equation must have thought we are all ignorant.

Youre talking about 2 cameras, and angles, not to mention focal lengths. Think those horror movies where the hallway grows behind the victim. Same thing. The ratio is not the same either.
I'm tellin ya, if the Travel channel runs that show on Phoenix again, they'll show you the footage that night, and the same shot with the same camera from the same spot. And those lights go behind the mountain. It's pretty thorough.

It seems the military flares worked pretty well for their intended purpose; that being to deflect attention away from whatever else happened those nights. Whenever you read any thread about the "Phoenix Lights" it always turns into a debate over "was flares" vs "wasn't flares".
How about we start a Phoenix Lights thread where we don't discuss flares at all. Is there any video or photographs of anything other than the flares from this event? We have the eye witness accounts which seem to indicate that there was something other than flares that many people saw. I've heard mention of video of the "craft". Can anyone provide a link? And please, do not link to a video of the flares.

I was listening to an interview on Coast To Coast AM where a woman who lives near the area described a huge craft flying over her house at night.
As a size reference, most aircraft you see in the sky can be completely blocked out by holding a finger tip up in the air (as they are so far away, and relatively small). She indicated it would take several fists to even begin to try to block out the size of this craft from her vision...
The lights were the only thing captured on film, and it's all that is addressed by the military (as it's the only solid proof of anything) so they released the story of the flares. There is still no mention from the military about all the whitnesses who saw the actual gigantic craft flying overhead...

Listen to how the witness describe the authorities hesitation about explaining, and blowing them off, actually mocking the entire event by bringing some ass dressed in a grey outfit to the press conference.
