The Phoenix lights … I recall listening to Art Bell live that night as the event unfolded.. the entire world knew of it by the next morning, and then the Governor even had a divisive mocking press conference featuring an alien to downplay the event as a non-event.
Enter history.. Enter this:
Some reported a temporary amnesia-like state, when immediately after seeing the lights, they went blank or failed to discuss it with anyone.
Panel moderator filmmaker James Fox, who investigated the case to produce a documentary, said that during interviews with hospice workers, they told how they “watched the lights appear and disappear over a period of time but didn’t say a word about it.”
One woman told him: “We went right back to our tea.”
Jim Mann, director of the Arizona Mutual UFO Network (MUFON) branch, which investigates UFO and alien sightings, told of similar accounts.
A man told Mr Mann he stopped his car to watched the UFOs with several other people and “a craft slowly glided overhead”.
The man said: “Not a word was spoken. After it went on by, everyone got in their car and drove home,” the panel heard.
From YouTube, a good free documentary of the event called The Phoenix Lights incident.
And the Art Bell anniversary of the lights (can’t find the actual live original show anywhere)
