Characteristics: Lights on object, Aura or haze around object, Left a trail, Changed Colo
Globe shaped object decends at above normal speed, makes impossible turn, and changes colors in flight.
The object dropped from the sky at approx. an 80 degree fall at a high rate of speed reaching about 50' above Capulin mountain peak, then made a hard vector turn of 90 degrees and shot across the highway disapearing over the range of mountains on the opposite side of the highway. It cleared the horizon in less then 4 seconds. The fall took about 3 seconds. As it fell it appeared as if itwere a falling star and was coming straight for us and twinkled white. When it turned it was a globe shpe which appeared as a bright blinking emerald green translucent color. It seemed to fire a strobe burst from the front of the craft which changed colors as it rotated around the craft leaving a trail behind it of white strobes. It looked as if what the trails were was actually the previous position of the craft. Almost like it was occupying both positions at once and was moving quicker then the eye could register.
