Location: Rio Rancho, NM
Shape: Light
Duration:1 minute
Bright green light, hovering in front of Sandia mountains, in the northern end of the Sandias. After about a minute of hovering, the light suddenly zoomed south, across the face of the Sandias, passed about the area of Kirtland AFB, and disappeared. Covered the distance in about one second.

I was about 12 at the time, but I remember it vividly. I had a good vantage point from across the Rio Grande Valley. A mountain I look at daily. I estimate the craft covered about 10 miles in about 1 second before disappearing.
