A couple in Arizona were left scratching their heads this past weekend when they spotted a mysterious series of lights in the night sky. The intriguing sighting, which wound up garnering attention from a local newscast, occurred on Sunday evening in the city of Mesa. Witnesses DJ Maier and Kerri Burnett say that the strange incident began when they noticed an inordinately bright light that suddenly began moving diagonally across the sky.
"I was trying to figure out which way it was heading," Burnett recalled, "and that's when we noticed it started dropping things from it." Fortunately, the couple were able to film the odd event as it unfolded and, in their footage, a series of smaller lights can indeed be seen falling from the object in a manner somewhat reminiscent of flares. As is to be expected in this day and age, the couple promptly posted their video to Facebook, but found that no one could explain what they had seen.
Aviation experts who examined the footage for TV station KNXV suggested that the 'UFO' was some kind of terrestrial aircraft that was likely dropping parachute flares. Be that as it may, Maier wasn't convinced of that explanation, noting that "there were no navigation lights. Even the military has to have navigation lights on. That's an FAA rule." As such, he offered a slightly more out-of-this-world explanation for what the couple had caught on camera. "I know what I saw," he mused, "and I don't think it was from here."
