Skip to comments.UFO Fireball Gives Arizona News Team the Jitters (Video)
Posted on 04/18/2012 12:25:15 PM PDT by carriage_hill
A UFO, not behaving like a meteor, streaked across the skies of Arizona, causing many to call police. And for a local news team to head out of the studio to investigate. What was it?
In a sign that mainstream media is beginning to pay serious attention to the unidentified flying object phenomenon, local Arizona TV news affiliate ABC15 did a two-minute news segment on the fireball which was reportedly streaking across the sky as the newscast aired live.
Witness photographs and videos were shown on-screen, and this one, showing an irregular flight path of the object, was broadcast. The news team speculated over what the object could be, even calling it a UFO at one point. A camera crew was sent out to the field to catch video of the object and they were successful.

*Something’s out there*, but I’m not sure I want to know for sure.
Once during a strenuous night flight under the direction of an instructor, I did observe a green meteor exploding/moving in odd directions. The instructor lightened up on my cockpit workload after I described what I had just seen... lol
I used to love poking fun at the “crazies” til I saw several things I can’t explain. Now I am one of the crazies and I ain’t poking fun or telling anyone anything.
Well worth renting MIB and MIB2. The series is a definite stitch.
They have this little palm zapper ray gun called a
“cricket.” Well I won’t give it away for ya.
Arizona has had a lot of sky activity over the years. All unexplained.Whats one more to that heap?
I know someone, actually a relative, who was in AF Intelligence, served in 3 wars and interviewed the NCO’s after the Roswell Incident.
He looked me straight in the eye and said, “Everything they say is true.”
I have two commerical pilots as cousins and one told me after he retired of strange sightings and the efforts the airlines go to to discourage their personnel of talking about UFO’s.
My favorite line from MIB is Tommy Lee Jones statement about the FBI not knowing anything.
Both of them are funny and worth seeing.
The bug guy deserves a Oscar for protraying an 8 legged critter trying to fit inside an “Elmer Suit.”
NEXT TIME . . .
These topics are supposed to be posted only in CHAT.
And that derisively to humorously.
It saves us all a lot of grief.
Did you look at the video? It was moving horizontally and was not Venus. Maybe it was swamp gas.
There are strange things out there.
Sometimes they have a rational explanation.
Sometimes they don’t.
I’ve always felt that we’ve only scratched the surface...
That was Vincent D'Onofrio ... also "Private Pyle" in Full Metal Jacket and "Detective Goren" in Law & Order: Criminal Intent ... among many others. Very talented actor.
Thanks for the ping, Quix!
The trick, as always, is not to let your conclusions run ahead of your data ... and to distinguish data from bogosity.
Thanks for the advice; I will do that next time, Q.
Arizona has an an amazing number of events.
If you go to YouTube, and search [UFO Arizona], dozens of them come up.Many witnessed by thousands of people at the same time. The Phoenix Lights are the most infamous.
Maybe we will get to know whats really happening soon?
Thanks for the review; I’ll get them rented for the weekend.
That’s exactly how I look at it all, now that I’ve *seen things* which I can’t explain away as swamp gas belches or lost balloons or whatever.
Fortunately or otherwise, I’m rarely able to conclude anything... LOL
Been there, done that.
Amazing what seeing a ball of light do something very screwy and very, very fast in the sky will do to your attitude about things :^)
I don't believe the green fireballs came from outer space but they were "real" UFOs -- *unidentified* flying objects. Nobody seems to have a provable theory about what caused them but there's been endless speculation. Google "green fireballs New Mexico" or read the Wiki summary here: GREEN FIREBALLS
Your description is almost identical with a craft my wife saw near San Luis Obispo, CA: lots of lights, fairly low altitude and absolutely silent. One more really odd thing: it seemed capable of making right-angle, not curved, course changes. She said it appeared to be V-shaped. That part of CA isn't too many flight miles from Area 51 and we've always figured it was a military test of some kind.
I guess it could have been more than one craft or maybe a group of special force guys in formation using some kind of quiet para-sails or something.
Brain-dead local ABC anchor dweeb, “A lot of people said this was moving horizonally, which might rule out a meteor.”
Uh, was it visible to military radar? if not they would not show up, and if the military was scrambled and it really was a ufo they saw, do we think we could do anything to it?
My S.A.C., who was coincidentally a retired Air Force colonel and SAC commander once chased one across four states. I noticed Venus in the night sky last night though, it seemed unusually bright and large.
Thanks; very, very interesting info, BM.
I looked for a link before I posted, it was in the washington post.......there are many such stories, like the UFO over UK that was larger then an ircraft carrier that when jets went to fire on them the jets shut down....

Thanks for the info.
Look out...you’ll be called a kook pretty soon. Some FReepers don’t believe in some things.
Yes I saw the video and it was Venus.
Thank you, Quix, this link works.
Thanks for your kind reply.
Thanks for the ping!

You don't like this constraint? Take it up with Jim. It came directly from him.
Do you happen to know what #74 was?
I don’t recall.
No sir, I don’t I checked my pings and there’s nothing there about #74. Don’t remember it, specifically.
I’ll help you out. 74 was you yet again defying Jim’s direct request to you to NOT post UFO stuff on FR, as I repeated in post 85. I am not sure why you feel driven to continually flaunt the request of the owner of this website to cease and desist doing such.
Until some of the orbs land in some laps and castrate some folks
So quix, do you wish an orb would castrate me or Jim Robinson? Jim is the one who issued the edict about you not posting UFO stuff on FR.
I'm puzzled that you have such a hard time with a metaphor illustrating the difficulty of entrenched ideas changing. No where did I say or hint I WISHED any such on ANYONE.
I’m somewhat confused as to why FReeper Quix is being castigated, as this entire thread was actually started by FReeper Carriage_Hill.
Is it my understanding that Quix is not permitted to even comment on threads dealing with the topic of UFO’s?
It seems to me that at 90+ posts later, if this thread was as objectionable due to topic as it is being portrayed, it should have been pulled immediately.
As for my Brother Quix, he is one of the kindest and most gracious FReepers I have had the pleasure of knowing, he has never specifically or by innuendo suggested, called for, or even hinted at any sort of hostile act to be directed at any living soul. He is a considerate, prayful Christian in every way, and he is my FRiend.
Ditto that. I think I understand JimRob's concern, but I hope that he kindly continues to tolerates Quix, as he tolerates so many of the rest of us quirky FReepers! Quix lends just an extra dimension to FReeping that makes it even more enjoyable than it already is, and he also offers what to me is a sometimes welcome break from the general topics. And if Quix is anything, he's a true blue conservative.
I apologize for putting this in the wrong category, Mr Admin Moderator. It won’t happen again, based upon Mr Quix’ advice to put it in Chat. I’m learning with others’ help. Is there a FR page which explains these established protocols, which I can refer to? I’d appreciate be notified so that I can read it, and don’t cause these problems again for you.
It was not his fault and I take full responsibility for it being here and any/all trouble it has caused everyone on FR.
Again, my apologies to everyone here.
Is FR only about politics now?
Tell me this is not newsworthy?
It’s not your fault. Quix knows full well what Jim has asked him not to do (see post 85), but he refuses to follow such, he continues to post links to UFO conspiracy sites.
UFOs are not off-topic - as you can see, this thread has remained up. Quix’s spamming endless conspiracy theories into FR about such is what is restricted by Jim.
ZOT them all to another galaxy!
I thoroughly LOVE the posts from Quix & his links. I would certainly hope their is no prohibitions unless the aliens in question are campaigning fiercely for Mitt.
Your information is always interesting and informative. And yes, I like this stuff. Always have/always will.
