Un-X News Magazine Presents Dr. Lynne Kitei M.D., Friday, July 10, 2015, 7:00pm, Charles Fillmore Chapel. Beyond the Phoenix Lights.The 1997 AZ statewide mass UFO sighting has become known worldwide as the “Phoenix Light” and is hailed as the most witnessed, most documented and most important anomalous event in Modern History. Not only was there a parade of silent mile wide V formations of orbs and nine different craft, witnessed by over 10,000 at low altitude for over a dozen hours throughout Arizona, CA, New Mexico and Nevada, but the advanced aerial technologies displayed were way beyond our own – and continue around the planet. Dr. Kitei has tirelessly and meticulously studied these anomalies for the past 17 years, pushing her accomplished Medical career aside while searching for a logical explication. She has yet to find one, but her 35mm  video evidence of the “Phoenix Lights” have been confirmed by University and Military Optical experts as true unknowns - that cannot be explained or denied to this day. What makes Dr. Kitei’s Presentation unique and much needed in the field, is that her findings are not only about the nuts and bolts of Ufology. During her intensive inquiry as a scientist, physician and first-hand experiencer, Dr. Kitei also discovered the powerful connection between ALL Unexplained Phenomena, including Near Death Experience, Out of Body; UFO Contact (what she calls UPs), plus the real-time and long-term effect on the witnesses themselves. Dr. Kitei takes us to the next step in our search for answers by delving into the intriguing “coincidences” and profound impact that these global anomalous phenomena are having on our consciousness and evolution. As Dr. Kitei stated when she came forward in 2004, after seven years of anonymity, It is time we get this topic out in the open – address it, accept it; study it – so we can find out who is driving these things, as well as move forward in our own evolution.
