Editorial Reviews


"Phoenix Lights is a compelling and thoroughly documented account of the most bizarre and widely observed UFO event in modern times." --Edgar Mitchell, ScD, Capt USN (ret), Apollo astronaut

"Vitality, clarity, and a keen open mind show through Lynne's carefully documented account of the the still unexplained Phoenix Lights." --Richard F. Haines, PhD, CHFP, Chief Scientist, NARCAP

"As the originator of much of the footage and still images of the objects that hovered over Phoenix, Dr Kitei's logical mind, forethought and clear thinking has resulted in invaluable and unarguable evidence to support the Phoenix Lights phenomenon. This self-confessed novice to the field has provided a pertinent reminder of an approach to Ufology that many researchers seem to have forgotten--UFO's exist and they may be far more connected to us than we realize. Perhaps it is time to stop focusing on what we can see and focus on what we can feel." --Lee Earle, Editor, UFO Encounter (UFORQ, Australia)

Format: Paperback
At 8 P.M. on the evening of the 6th February, 1995, Dr. Lynne Kitei had just settled into a bath when her relaxation was suddenly brought to a halt by her husband, Frank, calling from the bedroom. Dr. Lynne, knowing her husband, a family physician, was not easily alarmed, wrapped a towel around herself and rushed to his side to find him standing transfixed at the bedroom window, overlooking the distant skyline of the city of Phoenix, Arizona.
Frank's frantic calls were well justified for, less that a hundred yards from the window, three sphere-shaped objects hovered approximately 50 to 75 feet above ground level. Each of these "spheres" emanated a soft, inner light and it was obvious that they were not resultant of some laser beam or light show.
Realising instinctively that something very special was happening, Dr. Lynne grabbed her 35m.m. camera and managed to capture evidence of the strange objects on film. Little could she have known that this would prove to be the first of a whole series of events that would unfold over the coming months and years, peaking but not culminating on the evening of March 13th, 1997 when a number of craft and orbs, all unidentified, would cross the Arizona skies, an incident which became known as "The Phoenix Lights".
The phenomenon of The Phoenix Lights commenced at approximately 7-50p.m., when a "V-shaped" formation of bright yellow-orange orbs was observed leaving the Las Vegas area (Nevada) and flying at speed over the border into Arizona. The object was observed to travel over the Phoenix area and then on to Tucson, via a 300 mile corridor. The "V-shaped" formation was observed by thousands of people - from lorry drivers to physicians and children to lawyers.

I have followed the Phoenix Lights mystery for several years after having witnessed the strange lights myself on a visit to Arizona on March 13, 1997. I was thrilled when I saw that a new book had been written about it, especially from a witness who happened to be a medical doctor. Fortunately for me, what I discovered was an articulate account of a sincere and transforming personal journey, something I could actually relate to. The title of the book is right on. How comforting to know that I am NOT alone. I have had many questions myself that were answered beyond my expectation. I couldn't put the book down. Not to mention the photographs themselves. How incredible, yet credible, that Dr. Lynne had the forethought and dedication to document so much for us to consider, undeniable facts, not only in her written words, but in filming the Phoenix Lights on numerous occasion before and after the statewide incident. And now being brave enough to share them. Dr. Lynne is right on and she must know that she is not alone in her desire to get this out in the open, so the ridicule, secrecy and denial that have permeated the topic of the unexplained for far too long will take a giant step forward.

64 of 67 people found the following review helpful By W. Evans, an avid reader on February 22, 2006
Format: Paperback
Whether or not you are a believer in life beyond Earth, this book makes a substantial case that we are being visited by other intelligences - one that is a relief and comfort for those of us who have experienced an UP [Unexplained Phenomenon]. The author, who is a noted physician, educator and experiencer, shares her own journey of discovery, while helping the reader discover that we're not alone - and probably never have been. This book is a joy to read, as well as an intriguing guide, particularly for those searching for answers.

While I was searching, I happened on [...] and found the color photographs and footage on the site even more compelling than the black and whites illustrated in the book.

But make no mistake, this important story is a must read for young and old alike.

Format: Paperback
I have never witnessed an unidentified flying object nor have I had a near death experience. In the past I have been fascinated with discussions of these kinds of phenomena, but my logical, engineering personality would rationalize that there must be some other explanation. At the urging of a fellow engineer I picked up this book. I had no preconceived notion of it's contents and had never heard of the Phoenix lights. Therefore, I did not know what to expect when I got into the book. What I didn't expect was a convincing, detailed account of one doctor's search to discover the truth of what she personally witnessed in the skies over Phoenix. It is apparent that Dr. Kitei was fearful that her own credibility would be tarnished if she let if be known that she believed there was "something out there". Her tenacity fascinated me. Although I can say that the end of the book certainly provided the icing on the cake, without the detailed accounts and repeated questioning of herself, I know that I wouldn't have been convinced. Having read this book, I feel I have been taken on a journey that has left me feeling there is so much more I need to know....we all need to know. It's very compelling. Thank you Dr. Kitei for pursuing your answers and enlightening me.

39 of 40 people found the following review helpful By Dr. Chris Rogers on August 23, 2005
Format: Paperback
With all due respect, Peter Jennings' recent UFO special only continued the media's incessant and blatant debunking and confusion about a very important and real issue - that we are NOT alone in the Universe. The Phoenix Lights segment was very poorly covered, I must say. I wondered why Dr. Kitei - with her excellent research and photographic records - wasn't interviewed in that special. After all, she wrote `the book'.

But this review is not about Jennings or the media, it is about an intriguing read that delves into the reality of the subject of unexplained phenomena more succinctly and honestly than any I have examined throughout my 20 plus years of searching. You learn that for many years the dedicated Doctor Kitei pushed aside her successful and respected medical practice to pursue answers to something most of us would not even begin to attempt. The extraordinary unexplained Arizona mass sighting and the realization that these anomalous events were occurring worldwide, was only the beginning of Kitei's trek into "wonderland". She plainly admits that the Phoenix Lights event pulled her into this strange world of the unknown, but as a scientist and skeptic she was determined to get to the bottom of the mystery. As the book progresses she introduces the reader to other "unearthly" possibilities besides ETs, one that Quantum Physics is readily supporting these days - that these strange incidents just might be interdimensional, as well as interplanetary. This is clearly a new take on the age old question of how other intelligences `could' be visiting us that is not only enlightening, but opens up realms of possibilities.

Some people just don't get it...or don't want to.
