PHOENIX (3TV/CBS 5) -

This year marks the 20th Anniversary of the Phoenix Lights event and the topic took center stage as part of a panel discussion at the International UFO Congress Thursday afternoon.

"People want to know, just like myself, what is going on," said Dr. Lynne D. Kitei.

Dr. Kitei was an original witness to the Phoenix Lights on March 13, 1997, capturing video and photos of the mysterious lights that appeared over the Valley. She participated in the panel on the topic.

"I pushed my whole medical career aside to find a logical source and meaning for what I had photographed. I have yet to find it," she said.

Many believe the lights were other-worldly. Some, though, are more skeptical.

Dr. Kitei says as more time passes, we owe it to believers and skeptics alike to find out what really happened.

"I don't know what these things are but I know that they are and it's time we get this out in the open and address it and accept it and study it, so we can find out who's driving these things," said Dr. Kitei.

In honor of the 20th Anniversary, a special screening of The Phoenix Lights Documentary will take place on Sunday, March 12 at the Harkins Shea Theater.
