SXSW 2017: ‘Phoenix Lights’ UFO sighting recreated using drones

Posted March 14th, 2017

On March 13, 1997, unexplained lights popped up over Phoenix, Ariz. and Sonoro, Mexico. It’s a phenomenon that has never been explained, but is widely believed to be a UFO sighting.

During South by Southwest Monday night, the creators of “Phoenix Forgotten,” a new film based on the UFO sighting, recreated the phenomenon using drones as the “lights” in downtown Austin.

The film, which comes out April 21, is about three teenagers who go into the desert in search of the answer behind the lights, but they disappear—20 years later, the “truth” behind their disappearance is revealed.
