Location: San Pedro Mountain Area, NM
Shape: Light
Duration:30 seconds
Bright white light moving slowly near South Mountain in Santa Fe County

I had awakened at approximately 3:30am, and I had to take a leak. Usually I go outside to do this to save water in this arid area. I had gone outside, looked toward the San Pedro Mountains and saw a small moving light. I observed it very carefully and listened to see if it was some sort of aircraft. It was moving much too slowly to be an aircraft, no noise, and there were no blinking lights. So I surmised that it was a genuine first one! I also supposed because of its position that it was about 3 miles away when it disappeared from view behind South Mountain. I had not really had given much credability to UFOs until I met with a man that is a neighbor, and prominate in the UFO community, 2 years before my sighting. He told me that he reversed engineered a UFO at S-4, 15 miles south of Area 51.
