Editorial Reviews


"The Phoenix Lights is now one of the great wonders of the world for those who have their eyes and minds open." -David Sereda, researcher and filmmaker

"Dr. Lynne's handling of the Phoenix Lights phenomenon and all its implications sets a new standard for sober, matter-of-fact assessments of the evidence for beings more advanced than humans. By eschewing sensationalism, she lets the facts speak for themselves. The result is a lasting and constructive impact on human consciousness." -Paul Von Ward, MPA & MSc, author of Gods, Genes & Consciousness and The Soul Genome: Science and Reincarnation

"Two women are chiefly responsible for preventing the events of March 13, 1997, from fading into history without impact. One is former Phoenix Councilwoman Frances Emma Barwood, who risked her political career, refused to be cowed, and did her job on behalf of her constituency. The other is Dr. Lynne D. Kitei, who risked her professional career to investigate, document, and promote public awareness of what happened that evening. One demanded the truth from her government. The other brought the truth to her fellow citizens. All are in their debt." -Stephen Bassett, executive director, Paradigm Research Group

"The Phoenix Lights event was one of the most important mass-witnessed UFO events in U.S. history. Thanks to the dedicated work of Dr. Lynne Kitei, this remarkable occurrence--and other ongoing incidents in the Phoenix area--have been brought to the world's attention, moving disclosure forward." -Steven M. Greer M.D., International Director, CSETI and founder, The Disclosure Project,

"Dr. Lynne Kitei's efforts to study the Phoenix Lights phenomenon and discuss its broader social impacts makes an important contribution to the exopolitical movement. The evidence presented by Dr Kitei in her books and films makes her work an important part of the UFO Disclosure movement." -Michael E. Salla, M.A., Ph.D., founder, Exopolitics Institute, Hawaii,

"Thank you, Dr. Lynne, for having the courage to come forth with your video and with your book. The truth must be made known. In the words of a very well-known Native American who always spoke the truth: “You must speak straight so that your words may go as sunlight to our hearts." -Cochise, Chiricahua Apache. Jaguar Thunderwolf

"Dr. Lynne is one of those magical people who have been tapped on the shoulder by something truly extraordinary and mysterious. Rather than turn and run from it, she has bravely walked into the unknown. Her spirited mission is driven by the deepest caring and compassion, and her hunger for knowledge is voracious. Both documentary and book are stunning examples of the freedom of our times, and the great power of the individual to make a difference in a noble quest for truth. I am so happy to see her fantastic work touching the hearts and minds of people around the world. In my opinion, Dr Lynne is a true American hero." -Chris Dane Owens, TV, film, and music producer who arranged the Hollywood Premier of the Phoenix Lights Documentary at Warner Bros. Studios

"Dr. Lynne Kitei courageously offers truth and honesty on the most important and most witnessed UFO case ever experienced. I put my trust in Dr. Kitei, who never exaggerates and bravely offers her ‘cure’ for all of us whom the government and military continue to deceive." -Paul Davids, Executive Producer, ROSWELL

"Let the data speak. The fact is, this a true story--one that becomes more baffling and challenging the more we learn. It is too important to be ignored or trivialized. Dr. Kitei is giving voice to the data--hopefully many of us will listen and ponder." -Gary E. Schwartz, Ph.D., professor of psychology, surgery, medicine, neurology, and psychiatry and director, Laboratory for Advances in Consciousness and Health, University of Arizona

"Perhaps the most important result of the Phoenix sightings is that they turned Dr. Kitei on to do the things (book, documentary, public appearances, etc.) that she never would have done had they not happened. Her efforts have been very important in bringing this "message" to the public." -Bruce Maccabee, Ph.D., Navy Optical Physicist and leading Ufologist

"Dr. Lynne Kitei, gives an accurate and comprehensive evaluation of the unprecedented Phoenix Lights case. Her investigation makes a great contribution to the understanding of the unquestionable and ever-increasing alien presence on Earth." -A.J. Gevaerd, Researcher and editor of the Brazilian UFO Magazine

"The Phoenix Lights book is a milestone in international UFOlogy. Special thanks to Dr. Lynne for being a pioneer in this field." -Farah Yurdozu, UFO investigator and author, Turkey

"Dr. Lynne Kitei has done a superb job in presenting what is called "The Phoenix Lights" --- perhaps the most extensive and dramatic multiple sightings of UFOs of all time. No one who reads her updated book can remain a skeptic about the UFO phenomenon." -Dr. Brian O'Leary, astronaut

"I’ve been impressed with Dr. Lynne's courage and her open and honest pursuit of the truth surrounding what she witnessed herself that night in Phoenix. She is a highly credible and professional person with so much to lose by addressing the subject of UFO's. But she is standing fast in her description of events and knows what she did not see." -Colin Andrews, crop circle expert, UK

"Dr. Lynne's work is unparalleled in its accuracy and message. As a journalist and educator, I recommend that all read this book and understand that truly ‘we are not Alone.’" -Paola Harris, journalist and author, Italy

"Dr. Lynne Kitei has done more than anyone to research the Phoenix Lights sightings and to keep them where they belong--under the media spotlight and in the public eye." -Nick Pope, former minister of defense, UK

Customer Reviews

Dr. Kitei is an honest researcher and her work is most authoritative.
Henry Stonehall
To describe The Phoenix Lights as an important incident would be an understatement and this applies to Dr. Lynne's book, which is also truly unique.
Geoff Richardson
If you think you know what happened in Phoenix, then you need to read this book!

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.

Format: Paperback
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.

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.

Format: Paperback
This is a fine book and there's no disputing the sincerity of the author or her commitment to the truth. I suggest, though, that individuals interested in this event(s) also examine other books and look at additional items, like the Peter Jennings special, to get a sense of the odd ebb and flow of information on this subject. That program--the segment on the Phoenix Lights in particular--deserves some analysis; it was structured rather interestingly. Find a sharp friend with experience in advertising, psychology, or marketing to watch it with you.

People clearly saw something unusual that night (and at other times) and it certainly seemed like the unusual phenomenon went out of its way, so to say, to be seen. That may be the most important element--it was designed to be seen and to be discussed. Plenty of people were out comet-watching; an audience was guaranteed. (Curiously, a lot can go on in the sky right over the heads of urban populations and no one will see a thing--few actually look up. I've seen crowds in broad daylight not see the Goodyear Blimp pass right over their heads--if they couldn't hear it--and other things). Strange isolated lights alone will seldom attract the eye but patterns of lights almost always will. That can be done with lights attached to some rigid structure, lights in coordinated and controlled formation, and lights simply dropped in a rough pattern. It would seem that all three phenomenon--all the possible permutations--happened. Hm.

Again, all media information on the Phoenix Lights is useful as it helps to sort the wheat from the chaff. Oh, for the curious I strongly recommend you look at other titles from Hampton Roads Publishing Company that are not obviously flaky and New Age.

[If you ask me, there was nothing ET about anything that happened that night, but a lot of people absolutely did see something huge and extraordinary. Now, what're the biggest danged things that ever sailed the skies?]
