Movie Info

As darkness fell over Arizona on the evening of March 13, 1997, thousands of people from across the state reported witnessing a silent formation on lights in the sky that stretched a mile wide and glided silently in a v-formation. The next day, the story made headlines across the country, and Dr. Lynne Kitei realized that the bizarre phenomenon she had been documenting for months wasn't merely a figment of her overactive imagination. Based on Dr. Kitei's 2004 book The Phoenix Lights: A Skeptic's Discovery that We Are Not Alone, this documentary presents actual footage of the mysterious lights while offering expert commentary by military men, pilots, astronauts, and scientists as they ponder additional sightings in the Arizona skies and ponder the implications of such mass sightings. Additional interviews with Arizona Governor Fife Symington, moon walker Dr. Edgar Mitchell, Sc.D., a commercial and Vietnam pilot, as well as the operator who was on duty that fateful night in March of 1997 offer compelling insight into the possibility that we may not be alone in the universe. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

Audience Reviews for The Phoenix Lights Documentary

A fun eyewitness account of the famous "Phoenix Lights" phenomenon that logically refutes the government's explanations of what went on and presents some interesting notions of just what these things look like. The final third is where this documentary goes off the rails a bit into new age-y global warm-y and we-are-not-alone cheesiness. The documentary really just needed to focus on what a "UFO" actually is without all the "aliens among us" conjecture and philosophy about the nature of humanity and it's self-destruction and why we're being observed. A "UFO" is an "Unidentified Flying Object". Just that. It's flying and you don't know what it is. Leave the speculation open to the audience via the presentation of the facts. This is where UFO documentaries often loose credibility or any sheen of seriousness. That, and the fact that they often have crappy video effects and spacey music. "The Phoenix Lights" suffers from those drawbacks, but if you just focus on the eye-witness stories, accounts and fact around the phenomenon that it presents, you'll have fun. And you'll probably be pretty mad at how the city council treated one of their own when she brought the subject up as a civil concern for the city. Be sure to watch after the credits for updates to the story as well!

Oh, How you all hate more alien talk, But oh how this film was awesome! Undesrcibaly exponentionally vivid proof of alien contact, and goverment cover up, along with those up in the goverment, and civillians who want answers. Maybe in 2017, Just like 1997, 2007, and the various none mile wild big lights traingle ships, those orbs that appear every little time in between, in 2017, the big lights maybe return, Don't you think?
