National UFO Reporting Center Sighting Report
Occurred : 1/19/2017 18:05 (Entered as : 01/19/17 18:05)
Reported: 1/19/2017 5:42:47 PM 17:42
Posted: 1/26/2017
Location: Lincoln, NM
Shape: Fireball
Duration: 5 minutes
Characteristics: There were aircraft in the vicinity or aircraft chasing the object
500 orbs being chased by a jet.

Around 18:00, I and another were sitting inside, and started to hear the sound of possible two jet plans. As the noise grew louder so did our suspision and we proceeded outside. As we looked up we were unable to see any jets in the sky as they sounded directly above us.

Looking towards the south-east a glow of several orbs appeard very faint roughly 12. Over the next few minutes the orbs grew in intensity as more appeared. Roughly 500-1000 appeared and disappeared as we watched. There seemed to be no more then 50 at a time. Movement was slow and looked at first to fall but then recover and fly higher as the light would fade then repeate. The lights continued but our view was interrupted by the mountain. My feeling was that the lights were very high in the atmosphere compared to the low flying jet or jets.
