Large washer shaped object rotating of Kirtland AFB.

About five years ago in Albuquerque, NM, my brother who has since passed on, was very excited to tell me about what he and some other people saw.

He was working in an animal clinic when several customers entered the waiting room very excited from the parking lot outside. They wanted someone to come outside to look at a strange thing up in the sky. So he went outside with them and saw this thing hovering over Kirtland AFB which was about six miles away.

He said it was round and thin with a hole in the middle of it like a giant washer. It was slowly rotating on its edge. The sun was reflecting off of it as it rotated.

They watched it until it disappeared behind a cloud and was gone.

I do not recall him saying how long they watched it or what color it was.

Duration time, date, and time of sighting are a guess I put on the form as this was years ago. He was too excited about seeing the thing and did not mention those things. He has passed away since.
