Phoenix Lights incident anniversary sparks
'Eyewitness 2007 - You Are Not Alone' conferenceby Steve Hammons
Posted: 18:05 March 13, 2007
Today is the 10-year anniversary of the UFO sighting known as "The Phoenix Lights."
In the early evening hours of March 13, 1997, a massive V-shaped or boomerang-shaped object with large lights on its underside was reportedly observed by thousands of people across Arizona and metropolitan Phoenix.
And later this month, researchers, witnesses and average people from around the U.S. and the world will be converging on Phoenix for a conference exploring the UFO phenomena in general and the Phoenix Lights incident particular.
The "Eyewitness 2007 - You Are Not Alone" conference will be held in Glendale, Arizona, on Saturday, March 31, and Sunday, April 1, 2007.
It will celebrate the 10-year anniversary of the Phoenix Lights sighting and hopes to bring together many witnesses of that event.
Conference participants will recall the evening ten years ago when Arizonans reported the huge object slowly and silently drift over the metropolitan Phoenix area and other parts of Arizona.
Some witnesses said the object seemed to be one mile to two miles across in size.
The Thunderbird Executive Inn and Conference Center in Glendale will be home base for the conference.
Glendale, immediately west of the Phoenix city line, is a vibrant community conveniently located for access to freeways and many other areas of interest.
Conference plans include video recording of witness testimony for historical documentation, discussions, formal and informal information sharing, talks by experts and researchers, a workshop on photographic skills and other activities.
Sirius Seminars is helping coordinate the event and conference producer William W. Warwick IV says, "We do not pretend to have all the answers, but we feel that we are asking the right questions."
Warwick is scheduled to be a guest on the immensely popular radio show ?Coast to Coast AM? with host George Noory tonight. Another radio interview with Warwick on ?The Jerry Pippin Show? has been completed and due for broadcast as well.
