Characteristics: Aura or haze around object
The object appeared to be a giant piece of glass.
On this night I was visiting with a friend at his home. My friend, his 5 yr old son and myself were sitting on the hood of his car talking.
At some point the 5 yr old said quote "Look up" "Look up" very persistantly. His father told the boy to shut up.This responce by his father bothered me so I told the boy " ya those are stars" The boy again insisted that we look up. At this point I looked not straight up but looked to the south of our location and spotted what looked like a chevron shaped object moving silently through the sky.
The object was larger then an airliner had sharp edges to it and the entire surface emitted a white glow. The object reminded me of a giant peice of glass. I was completely shocked at the sight of this object.
After the object left I asked my friend to draw for me what he had just seen, I didnt want to influence his mind in anyway. His discription of the object was just as I had viewed it. The object I might add was on the same flight path to kirtland AFB that many planes use .
My friend and I grew up under this flight path and spent many a summer night trying to reflect spotlights off the wings of planes as they would come in for a landing. We both became very adept at I.D.ing types of planes day or night. What we saw was not a plane or a balloon or anything else that we had ever seen.
This whole experience was like seeing a ghost and left me very un-settled. Every time I tell this story I am met with great skeptisisum, but i know in my heart that I was fortunate enough to see something that most people will never get to see in their lifetime.
Witness indicates that date of sighting is approximate. PD
