Posted: 3/21/2003
Location: Santa Fe, NM
Shape: Cylinder
Duration:2-3 hours
I was closing the kitchen curtains when I glanced upward and saw a bright, yellow cylinder, very sparkly moving slowly--I thought it was an airplane, but no--it turned slowly, then I looked higher and another one was right up above it--1300 ft. approximately is where they were--one on top of the other, then the changed position and were side by side. I wanted to go outside and see clearer, but I was frightened to do so. Then one of the cylinders sped away and only one remained for approximately 2-3 hours---I didn't stay at the window watching constantly but I kept going back and forth to my window to see if it, or they were still there moving around the sky--and yes, one of them was. I finally went to bed at 22:00PM. There was much motion of lights inside my home, so I figured they were still out there. This is not my first sighting. I have had several. Last night was a full moon and the sky was very blue and clear. Once, last July, there was a silver cylinder that stayed motionless for about one hour, it was only 17:00PM and broad daylight; it finally made a l80 degree turn and left very fast to become a small dot then totally disappeared. There were 6 witnesses. That nite the news said it was a weather baloon, but it was not--no weather baloon could possibly take off at speeds of light!
