The UFO category might be viewed as the ultimate mystery of the unearthly world, and indeed there is no case shining brighter than the one which took place exactly 20 years ago, on March 13, 1997. This striking and lasting event, witnessed by scores of people through Arizona, comprises a part of one of the most astounding UFO sightings in the history. However, the multiplicity of first-hand reportage and official release does not help unmask the real truth that is covered by the mystery and debatable issues.

So, the tragedy began on the night of 20th March, 1997, amidst the Henderson of Nevada. This is almost next to Arizona. The officials were bombarded with calls from the border town of Arizona. A witness gave the description of a big, dark triangle-shaped object with six lights laying on the sky like something was overshadowed by the silence of your biggest fears. The object, part the size of a Boeing 747, was strange and puzzling, challenging the boundaries of the normal; it left onlookers thinking, and regardless the way it got into their thoughts, feeling inquisitive.

Throughout the night, more and more people came forward, with witnesses ranging from Paulden to Phoenix claiming they had seen bunches of lights and enormous craft that were either shaped like wedges or otherwise followed no conventional schema. Among the accounts, different reporters mentioned different things, for instance, some talked about slow, gradual movements, and others recounted strong accelerations and sharp the brakes were applied. Yet, amidst the diversity of testimonies, a singular narrative emerged: there was a local wonder as the craziness blew up in the horizon.

There were not only ordinary people to say that a formation of bright lights was seen while piloting into Phoenix, but also there was a film actor named Kurt Russell who unfortunately did not know the importance of that sight at the moment. He got acquainted with the phenomenon at last, and with the realization that it could be credible, it brought about his enthusiasm in the subject.

This detail, however, is ironic because the most troubling case of the Phoenix Lights is described by the countless eyewitnesses, including such famous person as Arizona's own Governor, Fife Symington, at that time. As telling of a hill giant, as big as the aircraft carrier, silent and having an unusual light show, it overshadowed all known natural and man-made bookers.

The Air Force gave its official reasons for the occurrences, blaming them on the conventional operational procedures of A-10 aircraft as well as illumination flares as the main reason. This explanation might account for the lights that have been reported in many cases, but it does fail to address the description of a solitary colossal object seen by tremendous numbers of people at a time.

The skeptics have tried hard to discredit the incident by either claiming it to be misinterpreted objects belonging to aircrafts or the natural phenomena. However, such accounts don't explain the infinite number and the stability of the eyewitness accounts, many of which were about or identified with something that went beyond all-too-mundane explanations.

However, the Phoenix Lights crop up in not only as an occurring in a distant place but the pattern of the same that has been seen across the countries and period of decades. From the Soviet Union in the time of Cold war to Belgium now and still, the cases with many big and unidentified objects in the sky, which can't be explained by the current science and our understanding of the universe and our place there remain visible.

The whole adventure of the Phoenix Lights remains a double-edged sword, a token that the quest for the impossible is still luring the people and the thirst for the unknown is still there, only glowing fonder. The slight optimists may quickly uncover the logic behind the mysterious, yet the mysteries remain fascinatingly irresolvable to our prosperous exploration of possibilities and imagination.

Throughout history, the Phoenix Lights attained the status of a mystery that is unsolved and kept reminding mankind that the mysteries of space we do not understand exist or are so elusive that they are not answerable by the known research methods.

Finally, the essence of the Phoenix Lights can be understood by looking into the various accounts and official investigations related to this event that have occurred so far. Each individual account is unique, leading us to witness the mystical elements from so many angles, thus demonstrating how impartial our views are, and how restricted our knowledge is.

The other account is also an occurrence, for example, a mother in northern Phoenix narrates how her four daughters and herself saw a wedge-shaped object that came over the mountains toward them. Indeed, it remained stationary just above our headline for a supposedly five minutes period; thus, they admired its size by filling up most of the sky, between thirty and forty degrees. Although it was the dead of night, they mentioned certain small details that laid along its mostly unrecognizable parts, just to give away how advanced this technology had it is.

And also, the ex-airline pilot with 13000 smooth flight hours, he told people he saw this object making a sudden change of directions while it grabbed its approach to his position. He spoke of their apparent brightness from afar but exhibited diminishing intensity as one drew closer, which indicated a high level of controlling capabilities and understanding surpassing that of any human ever.

Nonetheless, a person who claims to be a US Air Force airman stationed at Luke Air Force Base is testifying that the US government is in possession of a different technology. Accompanied by the matter-of-factness of the document obtained, his report containing the interception of the mysterious flying objects, along with the subsequent relocation and transfer to Greenland, elucidates a layer of secrecy and government actions to an otherwise confounding tale.

It is not strange that skeptics of this phenomenon find it very difficult to provide an answer that would be satisfactory enough to those who have witnessed this light formation. Faltering at some, either routine military exercises or illumination flares were blamed. Besides, its unexplainable dimensions and complexity of night lights completely shut them down. However, how could such commonplace bodies explain the reported sightings, which involved unresponsive, large spacecraft that were continuously seen by almost no less than 10,000 people in the entire state?

Additionally, the open statement from the Air Force, even though admitting the fact that there were A-10 aircraft in the location, doesn’t disprove people’s conclusion that the event took place or not. On the other hand, it amplifies the inquisitive nature of us viewers, gives rise to questions rather than answers, which leaves us wondering what the true nature of the March's night have been.

As we continue to unravel the enigma of the Phoenix Lights, one thing remains clear: this is not the narrative that will sink into a cloud of oblivion. This represents an allusion to eternal might of untraceable but the presence of such mysterious entities that exceed our imagination and outstrip understanding is intrinsic to science of the XXI century.

By the end, maybe, the actual truth of Phoenix Lights is not phase of known science, but the realm which human instinct and sensitivity are involved. It is the journey that has no end but leads us to understand that we must let reason step aside and be involved in the unknown and the complexity of the universe.
