I don't mean to seem as if I am disputing the flare video at all, I am just suspicious of why the flares were dropped at that time. I mentioned the
idea that the flares were deployed after sighting reports began a few hours prior. I tend to think those flares were dropped as a diversion and
foundation for the 'Official Story'
Then again, I am no expert and have only learned most of the details from talking to you guys here. It just seems to make the most sense to me, given
what I have learned so far.

There is no easy way to summarize the events of March 13, 1997.
It begins with a "first time photo" of a distant Gamma-Ray burst. (Scientific American July 1997) that claimed that "inside the bright point of
light, was a distant background object".
MSTI-3 satellite was disabled, It's mission was to photograph incoming missles and objects from space.
5:30 pm Crown King, AZ. 16 witnesses at rest stop at Sunset Point claimed they watched 3 massive V shaped craft. As 2 fighter jets approached from the
south...the 3 V's pancaked on top of each other, formed a white ball of light, and vanished.
Beginning at app 8:16 thru 9:45 pm thousands of people throughout Arizona witnesses reported, 5-7 red/white/amber lights, orbs, massive V shaped
craft, a 2 mile wide triangle, and a 1 mile wide disk. Multiple witnesses claimed seeing "beings" thru the portals. Some witnesses saw the red orbs
attached to the craft "seperate" and go off on their own.
App. 10 pm south/southwest of Phoenix- high altitude diversionary flare drop with ignition at app 17,000' altitude.
10:20 pm north Scottsdale massive V shaped craft seen by retired airline captain Trig Johnston and his son.
10:35 downtown Phoenix...workers on top of the Bank One tower claimed they had to "duck" as massive V shaped craft passed overhead.
2 am 3/;14 Key Biscaine Fla. President Clinton evacuated from golfer Greg Norman's home in early hours...claiming Clinton hurt his knee and needed
to return to DC.
That's a start. Dozens of pages of witness testimony from all over the state. Many more objects than one.

So esteay812, this has been a very good thread, thank you for bringing eyewitnesses into the thread to share what they 'actually' saw.
Also, a big thanks to you Mike, I really sense your sincerity and great response.
And to you Fenix, a big thanks for responding to esteays initial e-mail to get this thread going and then to join us on here at ATS and make yourself
available. Both you and Mike are to be 'thanked' big time.
NOW, I've been so interested in this topic, have looked over the links, videos, read the news accounts etc., and I am still bewildered as to what was
actually seen. Strange formation of lights, various times of the evening, thousands of viewers, government/military responding that they were
flares..........we are left we a lot of information, conflicting in some cases, some report 3 lights others 5 lights, so as you can see.....with all
of this information, the story can get quite convoluted.
Based upon what we think we know, as of now, 16 years come March 13th. Mike or Fenix, would you care to summarize as succinctly as you can, what
happened on March 13th, 1997?
Thank you very much for the effort of this thread, all the contributions and willingness to respond. I don't think we have a 'magic bullet' or a
'smoking gun' as analogies, but would like to sum up from the two eye-witnesses, what it is that they believe happened 16 years ago. Much
