Enormous yellow sphere seen rising over the Organ Mts. before midnight 8-18-2011

Enormous light yellow sphere rising over the organ mts. for about 6-8 minutes at 5 minutes to midnight (23:55 AM) larger than 4-5X size we see the sun

Then is started sinking back into the center of the Organ Mts. East of Las Cruces. seen from my open bedroom door as i was falling asleep. I knew it could not have been the Full moon becasue we just had one 8-13-11.

I was so startled that I got up and went to the calendar to make sure of the full moon on the 13th.

Then when i gotback to bed, 2 minutes later, it appeared to be burning - thru the screen door it looked ike tiny little red particles flaking off & disintegrating...

Then it was gone at approximatedly 10 past midnight on 8-20-2011.

It could have been something at White Sands Missile range.
