Phoenix Lights Return

Apparently, the Phoenix Lights may have returned last night:

Arizona Republic reporter Anne Ryman, who lives in Deer Valley, reported seeing four lights in a square shape that eventually became a triangular shape. The lights were moving to the east and they disappeared one by one. She said the lights were visible for about 13 minutes at about 8 p.m...

Ian Gregor, a spokesman for the Federal Aviation Administration said that air traffic controllers at Sky Harbor Airport also witnessed the lights, but they do not know the cause.

The incident is similar to the "Phoenix Lights" seen on March 13, 1997. Thousands of residents reported seeing a mile-wide, v-shaped formation of lights over the Valley. In that case the lights appeared about 7:30 p.m. and lasted until 10:30 p.m.

My friend Brink helpfully sent me an email this morning saying, "The UFOnauts are coming.  Watch out for anal probes."   Always good advice, I guess.

Where were they relative to the final approach course to Roswell, or where ever that place is?

Turns out it was a hoaxer with flares tied to balloons.

At least this time the UFONUTS will have trouble making hay over it.

While I'm all for UFO hoaxes (and crop circles, etc), it seems more than a bit irresponsible to loose 5 flares into the sky during Arizona's brush fire season.
