PHOENIX -- Phoenix residents and the media still are abuzz over the mysterious four red lights that appeared in Monday night's sky in north Phoenix.
A man who lives on the north side of the city, however, claims he's responsible.
The man, who did not want to be identified, told 3TV that he used fishing line to attach road flares to helium-filled balloons, then lit the fares and launched them a minute apart from his back yard.

Sounds good, however, I do believe this may be a crime where a lot of people live.
With my luck, the balloons would pop before the flares ran out, and I would burn down somebody's house.
If you really think about what the guy says he did, it would be really stupid, and very dangerous.

Flares? Well, they sure fooled the Air Force, who scrambled jets out of Luke AFB at the time of this occurence. Our military must be pretty stupid.
