Sighted bright triad of moving dots of light.

This sighting occurred when I was attending the fourth grade in spring of 1959 in Hobbs, New Mexico. We were outside at recess and I noticed several children on the playground looking up in the sky and pointing. I immediately looked up, and saw a twinkling point of silvery white light about three-fourths of the way to directly overhead. The point of light, as I looked at it more closely, was composed of three smaller lights, moving in and around one another. It didn’t appear to be moving, but seemed to be staying in one spot as I watched. Shortly after I saw it, recess was ended and we had to go inside.

I have told this experience to many people, but never reported it to any ufo organization in this way. I decided that it might be important to somebody, so I am submitting it now.

At this time I am 67 years old. At the time of this experience, I was eleven yrs. old.
