It was dusk and still very warm, so my family and I went out on our porch to cool off. The porch faced west toward Mingus Mountain, we were just setting there discussing our days events. As the conversation slowed my sister and I noticed about the same time an odd light rising over the mountain. As it got about three fingers high, it suddenly lit up the whole valley, like it was dusk, which by this time it was dark. It was oval shaped, and just hovered there for about half an hour. Then the light went out slowly until it was a small light and dark out. All of a sudden two more lights merged with the other and hovered there for a couple of seconds and then shot off to the North,and then there was only the dark sky and stars. It was a beautiful sight, I wont forget.
