Shape: Disk
Duration:unknown
Disk shaped object and other less distinct object was photographed over Las Cruces, NM. 10-05-02 @4:49 pm.

I took 4 pictures of the mountains to the west of Las Cruces, NM. The camera was a Canon G2 digital. The last shot taken at 4:49 pm was enlarged after downloading to a computer. Only then were the images of 2 objects noticed in the sky. One in the upper left was disk-shaped and appeared metallic in luster. A second object, below and to the right of the first, was apparently much smaller and/or further away. A previous shot taken 2 minutes earlier showed no objects.
