|Metallic orange lights over mountains Silver City, New Mexico
At 21;00 HRS.8/23/2004 , my brother and I witnessed two brilliant orange metallic lights side-by-side over the Silver City range of mountains to the west of Silver City, New Mexico. We are at an altitude of 6,000 feet and the lights were higher and just to the west of the mountains. Looking through binoculars the lights were solid with no other lights in,on,or around them. The two lights behaved like the Phoenix lights, fading in and out for some thirty minutes and appeared in three locations. (I have seen the Phoenix lights). There were aircraft in the vicinity. The lights did not behave like flares. The night was partially cloudy,stars visible and the almost first half of the moon. We will continue to watch.
