Summary: UFO cases with multiple witnesses, photographic and video evidence are always the most sought after by researchers. One of the best of these is the
The Lights Appear: March 13, 1997, was the onset of this extremely compelling account of various and sundry phenomenal lights which moved over the state of
Six Points of Light: The first reports indicated an object of six points of light, immediately followed by a report of eight connected lights, with a separate ninth, which moved in unison with the eight. The formation was seen again over the
More Than One Mile in Length: The enormous object was extremely low, and mountainous areas could be seen behind the craft in pictures, therefore giving photographic experts scale to approximate the elevation from the ground, and the distance from the camera. This would enable an estimate of the craft being a whopping one mile or more in length! The color of its lights were described as "blue-white," to "yellow-white," to "amber."

The Flare Theory: This explanation is totally unfounded for several reasons. First of all, flares do not move in unison, fall toward the ground, and then fly back up into the air, and move across many miles without changing their relative positions.Secondly, many witnesses had made reports of the giant lights hours before the reported time of the launch of the flares. This would not be the end of the
