I don't think people will ever change there ways and this is what will do this planet in.
Jim Dilettoso from the Village Labs there in Phoenix who I believe has great credientials tested them and said the lights didn't match any known lights that he compared them to including flares. This man I feel is very honest and trustworthy. They had another Lab look at the pictures and they said flares going behind the mountain. The guys looked and seemed like they were bought if you know what I mean.

Almost every serious researcher has denounced Dilettoso's "analysis" as you cannot accurately analyze the spectrum of light captured on film and then compare it in that fashion, and expect to get a match. There are FAR too many variables, and it's a fool's errand. You could have two different cameras film the same object, and you'd not match up the light analysis...possibly even with the same exact aperture settings, etc.
Forget the other lab, find the footage on the web, and look for yourself. If you have the means, superimpose (or even look side by side) with the daylight footage of the same area. You'll get the same result. The flares disappear behind the mountain just as they should, in the order they should, and do fall, and do only stay lit for less than 4 minutes, i.e. perfectly in line with flare duration.
Now, the first event, the 8pm one, that's a completely different ballgame...and is still debatable, but the 10pm event, captured on at least 6 different video cameras, has been fairly conclusively shown to be flares, specifically flares dropped by the visiting MD National Guard, Operation Snowbird, by A-10's.

but there was an important point made in the interview with
an eyewitness residing in Chandler (a suburb/adjacent city to Phoenix)
the eyewitness stated that he saw the object/lights North of his backyard location!
He knew the surrounding cities clustered around Phoenix,
& i infer he knew their situate locations also,
Scottsdale, Mesa, Tempe are also more directly due north of his Chandler
the interesting point about His viewing the object/lights to the North
is that the distant Goldwater target range is mostly Due West or WSW
from his vantage point...
which therefore negates the theory of 30-50 mile away 'flare drops'
that some offer is the explaination of the PhoenixLights,
so, if we can believe a group of eyewitnesses about the direction they observed the 13March1997 incident, a reporter or analyst could triangulate
& come to a reasonable assumption of just where the craft/lights phenomena was in the AZ sky
go to any MAP source & see about Chandler & downtown Phoenix
&the AZ bombing range
