Guest Tom King was in Phoenix during the Phoenix Lights event on March 13, 1997. He will discuss his longtime interest, Phoenix as a UFO hotspot and his extensive UFO filming.
BIO: Tom King attended Chandler/Gilbert Community College to study Computer Science. For the past 21 years he’s been working as a full stack developer for a government contractor. Tom moved to the Phoenix area in 1995 and started skywatching from his backyard. With in months he started recording the Mexico City style UFOs on VHS, SVHS, CVHS and Digital Video. Around 1996 he launched UFOvideo.com and posted videos of objects he and other recorded years before youtube and other streaming technology was invented. In late 1996 he went on the local news warning residents that Phoenix is a major UFO hotspot and the UFOS are right over town.
A few months later the famous “Phoenix Lights” incident happened and Tom was one of the five people who recorded the 10 PM event that night. Tom is one of the original Phoenix Lights investigators that’s still alive to talk about what happened that night.
After the Phoenix Lights case Tom moved to the east valley of Phoenix and from 2000-2003 he and dozens of others recorded a red UFO nicknamed “Bubba” from Gulf Breeze fame. Tom recorded this UFO about 3 dozen times and live streamed some of the UFO sightings. Then he got burned out in 2003 and retired from UFO research for 12 years. In 2015 he decided to pickup where he left off and bought dozens of 4K cameras, a thermal scope, various night vision devices. He’s been recording and collecting UFOS now on 4K and collaborating with other skywatchers and researchers to figure out what these things are.
