Actor Kurt Russell Witnessed And Reported The Phoenix Lights

Hollywood actor Kurt Russell did see the Phoenix Lights, UFOs are what some people would claim are nothing more than man-made explainable objects.

Kurt Russell witnessed the Phoenix Lights incident in 1997.

And some would say flares or drones including Chinese lanterns.

Russell is a trained observer which a lot of people forget about because any pilot has to be able to recognize objects, structures, and other aerial vehicles. After all, it's such an important part of being a competent pilot. The requirements for having a valid license means having the ability to tell an aircraft from a building.

Check out this visual acuity quote from the CAA Civil Aviation Authority:

(i) Distant visual acuity, with or without correction, shall be 6/9 (0,7) or better in each eye separately and visual acuity with both eyes shall be 6/6 (1,0) or better. (ii) At the initial examination, applicants with substandard vision in one eye shall be assessed as unfit. - UK CAA

Kurt Russell, the Hollywood movie star, claims he saw UFOs over Phoenix Arizona and I do not doubt that what he saw he couldn't assess as anything that should be there!

These are not just any UFOs there are many UFOs over Phoenix Arizona. These have become celebrities in their own right.

Kurt Russell, during an interview on the British Broadcasting Company (BBC), said he was flying his private plane (he's a pilot by the way) into Phoenix, AZ on March 13, 1997, when he spotted the lights soon to become the phenomenon that came to be known as the Phoenix Lights.

Russell, a licensed pilot, reported the lights to the control tower at Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport and, if his story is true, may have been the first person to officially log the sighting. The lights have been the subject of speculation and debate in the 20 years since they appeared. That was aided by the fact that rational explanations for the lights did not surface until July. By that time, the notion of them being mysterious objects had already taken root.

On March 13, 1997, at 7:55 pm MST, a witness in Henderson, Nevada, reported seeing a large, V-shaped object traveling southeast. At 8:15 pm, an unidentified former police officer in Paulden, Arizona, reported seeing a cluster of reddish-orange lights disappear over the southern horizon. - Wikipedia - Phoenix Lights

Most people who witnessed the lights reported seeing a V-shaped formation fly from north to south over the city, roughly following the path of Interstates 17 and 10, starting around 7 p.m.

Television stations showed footage of a later sighting: a series of orbs hovering in the sky to the west of the city, disappearing at random intervals.

The lights created a murmur of coverage locally when they appeared. But that June, USA TODAY put an artist's rendering of the lights on the front page. National news outlets followed up with their own stories and a star UFO sighting was born.

V-formation UFO sighting or National Guard planes

An amateur astronomer interviewed that June said he spotted the V-formation while he was in his backyard and trained his high-powered telescope on it. He saw the objects were planes. A unit of the Maryland National Guard reported in July 1997 that it was doing training missions on the Barry Goldwater Range west of the city and dropped high-intensity flares. Still, some weren’t satisfied, choosing to keep the mystery alive. It has been the subject of documentaries, and books and fictionalised in a movie, Phoenix Forgotten.

Russell, who plays an extraterrestrial visitor to Earth in "Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2" apparently saw the V-shape as he was flying into Phoenix with his son, Oliver, on the night in question.

He was about to land, he said, when he saw six lights over the airport. Uniform V-shape, he said on the BBC's The One Show. The interview was taped as Russell was promoting the movie, one in which his character, the godlike "Ego," travels in a highly advanced spacecraft. Phoenix radio station KTAR reported the tale, noting some unanswered questions in Russell's account. Russell said his son asked what the objects were and Russell said he didn’t know but would report them to the tower. He said: the tower responded that instruments didn’t show anything like that in the sky.

OK, Russell said, I'm going to declare it's unidentified, it’s flying and it's six objects. Russell said he then flew back to Los Angeles and didn’t think of the objects again. Two years later, his wife, the actress Goldie Hawn, was watching a documentary about the Phoenix Lights. Something about the lights looked familiar, Russell said on the BBC show. I was feeling like Richard Dreyfus in Close Encounters of the Third Kind, he said.


Russell said he heard the narrator say the lights were reported by a general aviation pilot who was landing. I'd never thought of it since then, he said, but I said, That was me. That was me. Russell said he went to his log book and saw that the date matched up, that he flew into Phoenix on that day.

So there you have it, Kurt Russell witnessed and reported the 2nd most important UFO sighting of the 20th century bar the number 1 UFO event which we all know as the Roswell UFO incident.


Had I never seen that show, Russell said, I never would have thought of it again.
