Duration:15 minutes
Six Spheres of light move into my vision over the 92 Albuquerque Balloon Fiesta,then vanish straight up.

We had just moved to Albuquerque and were attending the 1992 Balloon Fiesta. I had been photographing balloons all morning. At 10:00 the Fiesta was winding down; only a few balloons were still aloft. Then it happened,two spheres of light about the size of 5 magnitude stars, moving from east to west moved into my line of vision & stopped directly over head. Two more followed,then two more. They too stopped & remained motionless for a short period. Then all 6 began maneuvering independently in straight lines with no given pattern,right,left,backward,forward. It was all happening directly overhead,well above balloon altitude. I took 6 photos using a 35-105 zoom lens,5 of the photos included balloons for scale reference. The 6th without balloons. All 6 spheres reduced in size,as if going straight up until they vanished.
