Location: Pinos Altos, NM
Shape: Unknown
Duration:1.5 - 2.0 sec.
Very unusual atmospheric entry of unknown Craft.

Object spotted directly overhead. Went from NW to SE:approx. heading-115 deg. (Straight to Restricted Area R-107A, White Sands, N.M.). Length of travel: with a 12" ruler held at arms length-approx. 6 in. The first 4" or so was a Blue color with White borders, with the remaining 2" or so a dark orange/red with the orange/red streak breaking up the farther East it went. The width of the streak was about as wide as a pencil eraser held at arms length. Speed: VERY FAST. At the end of the visible streak, the object went invisible! The same exact sighting was seen on the next night 10/17/2003, except the time was 20;26 MDT. What do you think the odds are for this to happen exactly the same, two nights in a row? If it happens again this evening, I will let you know. I have seen many entries into the atmosphere by various different craft, but this is completely unlike anything I have seen before!!
