Location: Ruidsoso, NM
Shape: Light
Duration:15 minutes
2 points of light, diplaying bizzare behavior, while travelling throught the sky.

We were at Windy Point on Sierra Blanca mountain (10,400 ft) watching the moon come up when my wife told me to look to the north. What we saw was a point of light coming over the mountain, moving at a fair rate of speed. As it came over the mountain, the object emitted a multi colored flash of light. It then proceeded to drop and rise in elevation, change course at angles greater than 90 degrees, coming to a dead stop and starting again. It traveled from west to east and appeared to originate from the White Sands area, which is just west of Sierra Blanca. After about 2 minutes of viewing its travel, we observed it turning to the northwest and the light became too dim to see. About 10 minutes later, we observed another point of light crossing over the mountain, coming from the same area as the first object. This object performed much of what the first one did, but in a more subdued manner. About halfway across the sky, this object also pointed north and became very dim and eventually dissappeared from view.
