Arizonans LOVE seeing UFO’s. It’s been proven time and time again. This story about sightings of a magical clear bubble ship NASA weather balloon is further proof of Arizona’s obsession with UFO’s. One has to wonder why Arizona is so frequently the destination of choice for alien craft? Is it the mild winters? The influx of crystal-worshiping burnouts in Sedona and Tucson? Who knows? One thing is for certain, as you can tell from the credited photographer of the picture accompanying the azcentral.com story, we may be dealing with some biased observers.
A Very Brief History of Time (Arizona UFO Edition):
It all started in 1953 with a secret government cover-up of an alien crash site near Kingman. Unfortunately, no video exists of this sighting. Isn’t odd how so many UFO’s crash in rural, dimly-lit and unpopulated areas? Hmm….
Sightings continued off and on from 1953 forward culminating in 1997 with the most famous Arizona UFO sighting ever —“The Phoenix Lights.” This phenomenon was one of the most widely seen UFO sightings in history, encompassing residents of Nevada, Arizona and Mexico. Even then-Governor Fife Symington claimed to have witnessed the event (though, again, we have credibility problems). USAF later admitted to dropping flares in a training exercise that night.
As recently as last year, another sighting was captured on film by an “iReporter” for CNN (in other words, random dude with a camera/internet connection). This sighting was later revealed to be a prank.
