Yeh...I know you all will think Geezer has went wacko...tinfoil hat time, but I have a story about ufo's too. Seen something I can't explain on two occasions. First in Santa Cruz CA around 1975 was laying on my back out in the country looking at the sky, when five disks at high altitude streaked across the sky toward the coast, then made a 90 degree turn to the left, then another 90 degree turn to the right, then sped out of sight. I said to my girl friend...did you see that? And she said yeh there were five of them. So we were talking about it for a while when we seen the same five disks speeding back to the East and quickly out of sight.
The other time was a couple of years ago in Silverton Oregon in an RV park. My wife was inside and I was outside enjoying the warm evening, when I seen a cloud that was glowing with light. It was at least a couple of miles away. After watching for several minutes and wondering what could cause that, a large orb moved out of the cloud and set for a while, then moved rapidly moved to the left, then down toward the ground and out of sight. A minute or so later it went back up, then toward the cloud again, where it sat momentarily then went into the cloud again. I was trying to get my wife to come out and see it, so went in and told her that she should see this glowing cloud. She was wondering at the beautiful glow of the cloud when the orb came out and set in front of the cloud again. It was way larger than Venus but not quite as large as the moon. Needless to mention she was pretty amazed, and then it got brighter, then sped off to the left again and to the ground like before. Pretty soon it rose and returned to the cloud where it set like before and returned to the cloud. The cloud continued to glow for a while then went dim.
I was sure glad that she witnessed it or I would have had to put on my tinfoil hat again. We told our story together, but I doubt that many of our friends really believed us. My mom told me once to never believe what you hear and only half of what you see, but I still more than half believe that we seen something that was not from this planet, and half way believe the same about the Phoenix Lights event.
Former Arizona governor says he saw
'Phoenix Lights' UFO

Former Arizona Governor Fife Symington now states that he witnessed the huge "Phoenix Lights" UFO ten years ago, according to a published report by respected investigative journalist Leslie Kean.
In an article published Sunday, March 18, 2007, Kean reports that Symington claims that he saw a large triangular "craft of unknown origin" with lights.
"It was dramatic. And it couldn't have been flares because it was too symmetrical. It had a geometric outline, a constant shape," Symington is quoted as saying.
Kean obtained the statements from Symington in an exclusive interview from Phoenix. The former governor also said, "It was enormous and inexplicable. Who knows where it came from? A lot of people saw it, and I saw it too."
Symington also told Kean that he called the commander at nearby Luke Air Force Base on the far west side of metropolitan Phoenix as well as the top general of the Arizona National Guard. Symington also checked with the head of the Arizona Department of Public Safety, the state police agency about the huge mysterious object.
The former governor says they were "perplexed" and offered no explanation.
Arizona was on the brink of hysteria, Symington told Kean. So, six days later, on March 19, he and his staff staged a phony press conference in which an aide dressed up like an alien and was escorted before reporters in handcuffs.
"I never felt that the overall situation was a matter of ridicule," Symington now says. "I wanted them to lighten up and calm down, so I introduced a little levity."
New Video of Phoenix Lights shows triangular craft
Ten years ago, what some call one of the most significant UFO sightings in North America took place right here in Phoenix. Back in 1997, nearly everyone with video, photos or a story to tell about “The Phoenix Lights” turned to Jim Dilettoso and Michael Tanner at Village Labs in Tempe. After all that time, Dilettoso at last released video of “The Intruder”, as shown in our special, The Phoenix Lights: X.
But there’s more.
At least one more video exists, showing what appear to be mystery lights moving over Phoenix. The difference in this tape: Dilettoso says a pilot from Luke Air Force Base captured the images with a camera in his cockpit, as he pursued the lights over Maricopa County. While the video is not yet released to the public, Dilettoso does describe it exclusively for us.”
