As my wife and I were leaving a Christmas/birthday party near downtown Santa Fe, my wife noticed a bright orange light in the sky just over the tops of nearby homes to th south of our location. The light appeared to be moving southward away from us and the made a slow turn westward. As we watched, trying to figure out what it was, it began to get brighter and then split into two seperate but equally bright objects. We then got in the truck to try to get to higher ground for a better view. Approx. five minutes later we arrived at St. Vincent's hospital parking lot where , approx.2 to 3 minutes later while scaning the sky, the light appeared again. This light was moving in a south easterly direction and stayed visible for about 30 sec. before getting brighter and and spliting into three parts, one from the top and one from the bottom. We waited approx. 7 to 8 min. before we saw another light moving in the same direction as the second. This light came from farther away than the second and was moving at a greater speed, slightly bobbing up and down as it went before the light faded out and was gone. We did snap two shots of the objects on a camara phone, but as we continued to snap a few more shots the camera gave a message of "picture failed." The screen on the phone then went hay wire and the screen pixilated in in multiple colors, which has never happened before.
