Location: Las Cruces, NM
Shape: Oval
Duration:60 seconds
I saw a strange oval lighted object in the sky when I was flying from Austin to San Diego.

On August 22nd, I took a flight from Austin to San Diego and we were on Las Cruces, New Mexico, the pilot told us to put on our seat belt because we are going to hit bad weather.

So, I took out my phone to take some pictures of the storm. When I looked out the window I noticed a bright light in distance so I took a picture of it. Then I notice it was moving weird.

So I started filming it and then it disappeared and we never hit bad weather. I think the pilot saw what I saw that's why he told us to buckle up.

After the flight, I asked to talk to the pilot and they got him for me. I showed him my pictures and video and ask him this is what I saw when he told us to buckle up. His reply this is Venus then I said Venus just doesn't disappear. Then the pilot replied sometimes you see strange things in the sky.

I was on Southwest flight 1728 on 8/22/18.

Have have pictures and video of this incident. I posted this incident on my Instagram account @((address deleted)).
