((NUFORC Note: Witness has sent 32 video and still attachments in support of his report. In our opinion, the object is not inconsistent with a large, high-flying, semi-tetrahedral shaped, transparent helium-filled balloon. The object even drifts slowly across the field of view of the camera, and seems to rotate, or "tumble" slightly. Perhaps one of our readers could confirm whether there might have been a balloon launched out of the balloon facility in the Southwest. PD))

slow moving object evolves from a light green colored embryo shape to a full saucer with tent top and wht bulb like trim.

Object appeared, without the use of camcorder, as a bright white round light the size of a pencil eraser in the Southern skies of Santa Fe. As I started to film, the object looked like it was starting to fry like an egg until you started to see the bottom appear to start rolling up from the bottom. The object all the while started to pitch a pointed roof on top as the bottom rolled up to the middle where there was a slow revolving red light. As it continued slowly rotating, the pitch of the roof started to flatten out as round folding table top looking wings started to develop. The object then evolved itself into an object that looked much like a garlic or acorn. This means that the pitched roof on top of object sucked itself in like a flexible piece of aluminum while the bottom body remained looking like the bottom part of a garlic. As I continued to film for 15 minutes more, the object flattened out for another 3 to 4 minutes, meaning you could no longer see the top at all, however, the bottom finally started to flatten itself out horizontally like the traditional frisby like looking disk. As I filmed for another 3 to 4 minutes, the object popped (or should I say sprouted) it's roof up from the inside up then out just like a mushroom or a volcano. Once the new top was on the craft, you could see small little white light-bulb looking type fixtures around the trim of the disk. The bulbs appear to be revolving or e-volving around the craft slowly like maybe 2 to 3 miles an hour. I continue to film this object every morning if skies are clear. I have tried desperately to get help from various individuals from media members to my friend who is a priest. I have cordially invited several individuals to join me as I film but have not been succesful. I don't know whether they believe I am crazy or if they are having a hard time manipulating all the detail seen on the video? Either way, I appear to be the only one to this point to be enjoying an extra-ordinary show the rest of the world will miss unless they ! finally take a chance and come outside to look.
