The Phoenix lights were actually a military project, the brainchild of Area 51 strategists. What the Phoenix lights actually were, were cutting-edge technology at the time, these special hovering flares that were released in a stretegic position to create the illusion of a massive aircraft, a mothership, or what have you. And they actually released a type of blanket of gas to block out the stars and create the illusion that this was a solid body, and not just a pattern of unjoined lights or flares--which they actually were. ..................... The purpose of this illusion of a massive UFO, or whatever it was supposed to be, was actually to divert attention from experimental chemicals that the military was releasing on Phoenix that night. Now, I can niether confirm nor deny the actual purpose of these chemicals, but the rumor amongst us lower-tier members of Area 51, the base chatter and talk was, that the chemicals were actually--had some type of immunization quality, and were supposed to protect against biological attacks, certain biological attacks. So, in essence, the population of Phoenix--at least a part of it--were actually being used as guinea pigs.
