Shape: Sphere
Duration:1-2 min
The object appeared to be a metallic looking sphere that flew in an erratic manner.

The object appeared to be a metallic sphere. It appeared to reflect sunlight during the entire sighting and alternated between a metallic silver and a metallic red. It was quite bright and flew in an erratic manner. At first I thought that it was just a metallic foil balloon, but after observing it longer and based on my perspective with the Sandia mountains, I estimated the distance to have been 5-6 miles. Given the estimated distance it was flying much faster than a typical small aircraft or helicopter would. Best guess at size would be 10'-15' in diameter. It disappeared behind a small mountain in the Sandia chain and was not seen again.
