"Phoenix Resident"

15 With 20/13 vision

This is a story of a Grandmother (Sweetheart) who, may or may not have been involved in Secret Government Activity & her grandson, a 15 year old boy named Chris, an underaged employee at Sky Harbor airport with exceptional ability, 20/13 eyesight. While Chris was on his way home from work, he witnessed an event, now known as 

''the Phoenix Lights" 

An event that caused his Grandmother to break her silence!

What seemed to be a normal week






Death of Christopher



What was that?



The Meeting






Phoenix Lights



Message received

The date is March 13th, 1997. What appeared to be another typical Thursday evening for residents in the Valley of the Sun, quickly changed as the "Lights" began to emerge and glide with unity across the Arizona night sky.

Lights over Phoenix


Thursday 13th 1997

Thursday, the Arizona Wildcats started their championship run beating South Alabama in the first round of March Madness. The Halibot Comet attracted eyes towards the night sky, however the calls came pouring in about a V shaped craft that left citizens speechless.​

First Reports

Based off of verified witness accounts it seems as though the Phoenix Lights started in 2 different location other than Phoenix. Around 7:30pm the formation was seen over the Superstition Mountains, and then around 7:55 it was reported in Henderson, Nevada.

Flight Path

The timed stamped sighting reports the V-shapeed object lights appeared in Nevada and traveled southeast through Paulden, Arizona and the Prescott area before eventually making its way to Phoenix where it gained its popular name. Disappearing south of Tucson near the Mexico Border


The object itself was had to be about a mile in length in a V-shape with up to 9 orbs shaped lights that came on. As the object passed through the night sky it appeared as if one could see right through it. Imagine hold a plastic water bottle over your head and looking through it, you could see the stars through the craft. "Phoenix Resident"​

The Sightings

The Phoenix Lights were not shy! The craft moved as if it were on cruise control, casually coasting through the night sky as it was observed by thousands for 106 minutes. As many as 9 lights were reported moving in unison throughout the Arizona night sky as residents witnessed something out of the ordinary.

Where did it go?

It's unclear exactly what went on after the Phoenix Lights disappeared over the horizon south of Tucson that night. Some say that the V-shaped object was seen later that evening heading northwest, mirroring the same flight path it took earlier that evening, some say it shot up into space after jets got close to it.

Celebrity witness shares their story

We were all in shock when the we found out that movie star Kurt Russell appeared on British Broadcasting Corporation's public service channel and opened up about the night when he and his son encountered this massive object, while airborne , making their approach towards the airport that evening on March 13th 1997

Kurt Russell

The pilot who reported the Phoenix Lights

A detailed account from a well known source who saw

The Phoenix Lights on March 13th, 1997

was none other than Kurt Russell who recently came out and discussed his experience flying into Phoenix that Thursday with his son. During the interview with BBC news Mr. Russell goes into detail about the size of the craft he encountered while airborne and how he randomly saw the story years later.

Listen to the full interview below!

Kurt Russel full interview

"I was flying my son ( Oliver ) to go see his girlfriend, and we were on approach. I saw six lights over the airport in absolute V shape. Oliver said to me, I was just looking at him, I was coming in, we're maybe a half mile out, and Oliver said, 'Pa, what are those lights?' Then I kind of came out of my reverie and said, ' I don't know what they are. He said, 'Are we okay here?' And I said, 'Yeah, I'm gonna call in, ' and I reported it."

The Importance of.....



During this interview, the innocence of the interviewer caused him to miss out on a Golden piece of information that was left out as Kurt Russell was giving his 1st account eye witness testimony as to what he saw on Thursday March 13, 1997 during approach of landing his private plane in Phoenix, Arizona.


It is imperative to know exactly what time it was when Kurt Russell flew right by the craft he was unable to identify and what he logged in his flight book. Was this question purposely left out or was the interviewer to focused on the sighting and lure of hear a famous Hollywood actor talk about a UFO sighting.

In Reality

In present day,  the truth about what was reported on local and national news stations versus what actually happened on March 13, 1997 is starting to come to light. The residents in the Valley of the Sun that witnessed the "Lights" that Thursday evening want the truth to be told.

In Comparison

The credible eyewitness accounts say that the craft was Considered to be a mile long

Up to 3 football fields in length, V-Shaped with square edges, and didn't make a sound. The "Lights" radiated Intelligence, as the moved in unison across the state.

The Lights over Phoenix were No accident!

What took place on March 13, 1997 was no accident! In fact, the Lights over Phoenix was a response to a message we sent in the past, a response we knew was coming. 


As Chris made it home from work that evening, he noticed the lights we still in the sky, in the direction towards South Mountain & Estrella Mountain range. He called Sweetheart out to witness exactly what he had seen when he was on his way home from work. When she stepped outside to observe the lights over Phoenix, she brought up a conversation that took place on Jan 20, 1997 while on a trip our Nations Capitol. This conversation involved a very important man! 

Sweetheart broke her silence and filled Chris in on details about that conversation, details that Chris would never forget.


The story will continue in a book format.
