Shape: Light
Duration:1 minute
Strange light moving by moon.

At approx. 8:30 pm this evening, my husband called for me to hurry up and come outside..above the moon was a white light. It was moving downwards pretty rapidly, in a smooth, almost floating movement. There were no flashing lights on it that we could see. There was a sort of haze arount the object. We watched it continue down for about a minute before we lost it behind some trees. But, before it went behind the trees it seemed like it was beginning to fade out. It was way too slow for a meteorite but didn't seem like a regular aircraft.

Just so you know, my husband is a very conservative 53 year old man, I am a 48 year old grandmother of 5 and this is the second UFO sighting ( if indeed that is what it was) we have see from our front yard. The other incident was several years ago and was nothing like this sighting.

((NUFORC Note: Space Station flew over Carlsbad, NM, at from 2022 to 2026 hrs. on this date. Hence, probable sighting of ISS. PD))
