Phoenix Lights

Last week during a Phoenix, Arizona, news report by Andrea Robinson the camera caught what looked like a bright explosion in the background of the image. At first, the network thought that the light might be from an exploding transformer, but after checking with the power company they found that no such event had occurred. So far no explanation has yet emerged for the strange flash.

The strange blast was caught on tape and aired live during Robinson's report. At first, news station employees thought the explosion was a transformer. But when FOX 10 checked with local utility providers APS and Salt River Project, they were told no transformers had blown in the area.

While the source of the explosion remains a mystery, it comes just before the 15th anniversary of one of the most-famous UFO sightings in recent history. On March 13, 1997, a cluster of glowing orbs moving in a V-shaped formation was spotted in the skies above Phoenix. That incident was also caught on film. The origin of the light formation has since been endlessly analyzed and debated.

Sure, it could be related to UFO sightings, or perhaps have been caused by a natural phenomenon that would easily be mistaken for some sort of alien activty. Watch the embedded video and decide for yourself.

What I'm really hoping is that it means a mage in the Phoenix area has figured out to cast Fireball. Or maybe Lightning Bolt. Either will do as far as I'm concerned. If that's the case and the mage in question is you, feel free to drop me a line.

I remember this, sometime around 2005-2008. Bright flashes seen on the East side of Vegas corresponding with military tests that were reported on in the evening news for one day, and then never talked of in the local media again, including the papers the next day, but a lot of people claimed to have seen them. People were going on about a conspiracy theory at the time and I think interdimensional travel experiments being conducted by the military.

I didn't see the lights though, and I may even have been out of town when it happened. Wish I knew where to find someone who was into that conspiracy back then. Web Videos and Youtube weren't so popular back then. Back then I filed it under stupid conspiracy theory nonsense, but with Phoenix being about eight hours of desert and forest by car from Vegas, and the government owning a lot of that desert and forest, there might be something to it.

@J.C. Yes! It's Enchanter Tim on the loose!

@Rob: I'd guess that it's some sort of secret military project or exercise as well if I had to choose. As far as what they're working on, though, with all that desert it could be just about anything. Having driven through Arizona, the apparent emptiness is pretty mind-blowing for somebody like me from Minnesota who's used to water and greenery everywhere.
