Episode Summary

World's Greatest Mysteries Phoenix Lights: UFO Flyovers Or Military Test Flights?
Controversy. Conspiracy. Confusion. History is fraught with events -- from local to global -- that have never been satisfactorily explained. What caused the dinosaurs to perish? How were the Egyptian Pyramids built? What happened to the great Inca civilization? Was John Wilkes Booth part of a large, sinister plot? Was George Armstrong Custer sacrificed to save the Grant Administration? Is there anything happening in Roswell, New Mexico, that should be shared with American citizens? Who shot John F. Kennedy? These and dozens of other international mysteries are investigated, explored, unraveled and reported. Phoenix Lights: UFO Flyovers Or Military Test Flights? Strange sights in the sky have been reported periodically throughout recorded history. Perhaps the most significant optical phenomenon, though, initially occurred over the southwestern United States in March 13, 1997. Called the --Phoenix Lights, this unexplained atmospheric anomaly lasted for three hours and was witnessed by thousands of people in the sky over the U.S. states of Arizona and Nevada, and the Mexican state of Sonora. Unlike most unusual sightings, follow-up research and investigation have resulted in no plausible explanation. It might have been a top secret military weapon, its existence too classified to reveal. Or it could have been the most dramatic UFO--Unidentified Flying Object--sighting in modern history. What did the citizens of Phoenix see that was so eerie and troubling? This mesmerizing television program presents amazing new footage of the Phoenix Lights that, a decade later, continue to appear periodically over the skies of Valley of the Sun in central Arizona. The program questions what would happen if a similar event occurred in other U.S. communities. It examines how Phoenix city officials have responded, the investigations they've undertaken, and how the Phoenix Lights have divided the community.moreless
