Location: Bluewater Lake, NM
Shape: Light
Duration:20 min
my son and i witnessed an orange light fly above the lake shore five different times in about a 20-25 min span. it made no sound and the light didn't waver

my son and i witnessed an orange light in the sky. we were camped on the western shore line of the lake. it was about 0430 when i noticed what i first thought was a falling star, but there was no tail and it didn't burn out and it dipped below a range of hills to the sse of the lake. about 5 min later i saw the same color light flying from the south to the north . it was about the size of a dime at this time. i flashed my flashlight at it for several seconds when i woke my 9 yr old son. i pointed to the northern sky to show him the light when it was gone. i told him i seen this light flying from this direction (i pointed to the southern sky and there it was again. it was a little closer this time. my son was very excited and we watched it fly the same direction. it didn't seem to fly off into the distance it just was gone a some point. my son then got out of the camper shell and he was looking in the sky and he said" there it is again." this time it was almost above us slightly to the north. it then flew with no sound to the south. at this time it was about the size of a quarter on your ceiling. and we could see that every few seconds it appeared to zig-zag. there was no moon out at this time and the were a few clouds in the sky. the light was flying below these scattered clouds, but it then flew over a cloud and into another. at this time we couldn't see it any longer . we both turned our heads back to where he first seen it , and there it was again. this time it stayed below the clouds and flew in a big semi-circle to the south. we still don't know if it was one or two objects flying above us, but we never saw more than one light at a time. i live in albuquerque n.m and work in a semiconductor fab. my son and i often fish this lake at night for catfish. i do know there is an army weapons depot just west of the lake ft wingate.
