Location: Carlsbad, NM
Shape: Changing
Duration: Few seconds
Characteristics: There were lights on the object
I was driving north on Hwy 285 between Carlsbad, NM, and Artesia, NM. I saw a line of three to four red lights that twisted to reveal another arm covered with the same kind of lights. I believe it was an L or boomerang shape.

It was quite a ways off and very dark. As soon as it turned to reveal the other arm it virtually disappeared.

I drive at night for a living and I am very familiar with things in the night sky. I've never seen anything like this and wish it would have lasted a lot longer than just a few seconds.
