Spooklight on South Mountain

Researcher Dennis Guern and I continue to study odd lights that show up on South Mountain in Phoenix.

Many know this location as the infamous Phoenix Lights site. Well, these lights are on the mountain and not atop of it. Some can be explainable, perhaps it's a mountain bike or someone hoofing it around at night. It is a huge municipal park, but on the eastern side facing Ahwatukee, there are no roads, no cars, nothing but a few brave folks who decide to hit it at night. They are few and far between.

This one night we witnessed a light in a place that has no paths to it. The light was very bright and steady. We could see the outline of the mountain above it and it was about 3/4 of the way up. The light did not climb up the mountain or down. 

What struck our attention was a strange dance of light around the main light, where sometimes one or two blue smaller lights would shoot off, a strange aura surrounded it, the color shifting sometimes to red, pink, blue, purple, green, yellow....

There was no sound associated. I captured it with my cell, but then pulled out my quality camera and then my videocamera with IR. 

Here's a video that compiles what we found. We still cannot explain it and it was amazing to watch with our eyes.
