Location: Las Cruces, NM
Shape: Circle
Duration:3 minutes
My father and i were driving home from El Paso, Texas, to Las Cruses, New Mexico. Half way to las cruses, (which is about a 30 min. drive) we spotted a shining light about 1000 feet in the sky, coming over us.

As we watched the light, the light grew from 1 light, to 2 lights, and then into 4 lights. The crafts were moving silently over the mountains. finally about 3 minutes later, the lights went over the mountains,and we could no longer see them any longer. The lights looked as though there were 2 on top, and 2 on bottom. The two on top were close together, and the 2 on bottom were further apart, almost like a small pyramid. The lights were very bright.

The lights that we saw, were round. they were very bright, almost like extra bright spotlights. The color of the lights was a yellow or shining color. the background of my father,(the other witness besides me)is that he is an ex-soldier in the army. he doesn't believe thy were ufo's, but rather some kind of secret millitary aircraft. my father is the type that believes everything the government says. my own background is, i'm 15, what other information do you need to know?
