|7:08 AM Albuquerque, NM April 4, 2018, large, rust-colored saucer vanishes after geometrical shape surrounds the object.
At 7:08 AM on April 4, 2018, while heading directly Westbound on Spain Road at the intersection of Spain Road and Eubank Blvd NE in Albuquerque, NM, I noticed a large, rust-colored saucer in the sky.
The saucer looked to be moving extremely slowly towards the North or Northwest approximately 2,000 Ft above the Albuquerque valley and approximately 4 miles West from my location. At first, I put it off as an odd colored military aircraft taking off the same direction I was going, but the sky around the saucer became a lighter blue color in a perfect geometrical shape of a parallelogram. I thought my eyes were playing a trick on me, and I looked forward to continue driving through the intersection. I looked back up to verify what I saw, and the saucer was gone.
From the vantage point of where I was, I could see the entire sky, and no object was visible anywhere anymore.
I am a veteran of who has worked on airfields with every type of US military plane, and every aspect of this object was not consistent with any military aircraft I have seen, so here I am reporting this because I cannot verify what this UFO was even with my knowledge.
((NUFORC Note: We spoke via telephone with the witness, and found him to be exceptionally eloquent, and seemingly quite sincere, in his description of the sighting. Also, because of his background in the military, we suspect he is an excellent, and highly reliable, witness. PD))
