The local news (KNXV, Channel 15) in Phoenix reported a massive wave of UFO
sightings last night (3/13/1997), with sightings of a large, black, triagular object
with white lights at the corners. There was some pretty good videotape showing
the lights (couldn't see the object). The sightings started in Prescott, AZ, and then
were sequentially reported in Glendale, Phoenix, and Tucson over the course of
40 minutes. This is about a 200 mile distance, giving an average speed of 300 MPH.
The lights on the videotape shown appeared fairly low, and all the observers
that spoke on the news reported it as low and moving; the tape didn't show movement
that fast, but it could have been moving away.

At least one commercial airline pilot reported the object enroute to landing, telling
the ATC that it was directly above him. Phoenix radar showed nothing, and
local FAA officials had no explaination, and the news reported that the local air
force base (Luke AFB) didn't return calls.

The news said local emergency officials usually get one or two UFO reports a day,
but they logged "thousands" of calls last night.
