6 Real-Life UFO Sightings Guaranteed To Creep You Out

#3: Phoenix Lights | Arizona, 1997
Thousands of people in and around Phoenix reported seeing two bizarre incidents on the evening of March 13, 1997. One group saw lights in triangular formation pass over the sky, while another group noted a series of stationary lights in the area. What was it? The U.S. Airforce said it was a training exerise (yep, the same excuse the military used when they were covering for Tony Stark in Iron Man).

And then-Arizona Governor Fife Symington calmly provided this explanation: People who thought they were UFOs were morons; he even had one of his staff members wear an E.T. costume during a press conference. Years later, Symington changed his tune and said, “I’m a pilot and I know just about every machine that flies. It was bigger than anything that I’ve ever seen. It remains a great mystery.” A politician completely changing his story when it suited him? Shocking!
