Episode 121: Fire In The Sky
On November 5, 1975, a group of loggers in the mountains of northeastern Arizona observed a strange, unusually bright light in the sky. One of those men, Travis Walton, recklessly left the safety of their truck (Van) to take a closer look. Suddenly, as he walked toward the light, Walton was blasted back by a mysterious energy.
The driver was Mike Rogers, the crew foreman and a personal friend of Walton’s. While fleeing the scene, Rogers reported looking back and seeing a luminous object lift out of the forest and speed rapidly toward the horizon. He, along with the other five witnesses, would eventually be subjected to polygraph (lie detection) examinations regarding the event, the successful outcomes of which catapulted the case into the national spotlight.
In A rare interview, Mike Rogers takes us back to the night that would become, one of the most famous UFO cases in the world. Later Mike has an opinion on the Phoenix lights incident. The Phoenix Lights occurred on March 13, 1997, and was an event that caused tremendous speculation.
