Newscast review by Sanja Z.

I recently saw a CNN newscast about the strangest event in Arizona which happened 10 years ago, and no one can really explain to us what it was. Some strange lights appeared in the night sky above Phoenix in Arizona.

Former Arizona Governor Five Symington witnessesed the event as did a lot of other citizens of Phoenix. They told pretty the same story about that event. Five Symington introduced a place of the event to the CNN journalist which wanted to made newscast about it. Five was pretty afraid to make panic 10 years ago, because he also wasn’t so sure what was happened that night in 1997.


In regard to Five, residents were certain about everything what they saw. In this video we can notice that they are explaining and describing everything like it is happening in that moment. They told they saw something strange, large, incredibly, size of a football field.


Five Symington couldn’t tell in public what he had seen that night, and now he wanted to explain what it was. But even if he tried to explain us, we still didn’t get the real answer, or it is better to say matching answer. It’s not important if you believe in Fives and people words, I am sure you should watch this video because it is fun and interesting, even if there is a lot of questions without answer.

Newscast Review by Milica Cvetinovic


On the 3rd March 1997, a strange event happened in Phoenix, Arizona. Some lights were seen and not even today has anyone explained exactly what happened that night. Gary Tuchman, a CNN journalist decided to make a newscast about it. It is interesting, especially because the former Governer of Arizona talks about it.

Fife Symington who was the governer at the time speaks about what the event and the situation were ike at the time. He introduces us to a place of the event and speaks about the situation in the Goverment. Apparentlly, back in 1997 he couldn’t speak freely about everything because otherwise he would create panic in the state. However, he claims that behind the eyes of the public he wasn’t sure himself what happened that night.

Apart from the governer’s uncertainty, people who witnessed the event are more than certain what happened. In the videos from 1997 we can see how upset they were by the vividness of their descriptions. They claim to have seen something large, something strange, and that there is no way that it was made by the human hand.

What is interesting is the fact that not even today is it explained what was seen in the Phoenix sky that night. It doesn’t matter whether you believe in the existence of the aliens and their craft or not, this is an interesting story to be heard. Lots of questions, still no answers. Not even ten years later.
