Location: Los Lunas, NM
Shape: Unknown
Duration:20 minutes
What I saw shone a light like I have never seen before or since and aerodynamic capabilities beyond what we have.

While driving back from Albuquerque on a crystal clear night I observed an object flying around Los Lunas hill. Because of the moon light I could make out a dark object hovering and moving about. As we got within about 5 miles the object lit up a part of the hill side with a light that did not look like any light I had ever seen. The light was not instantaneous but moved toward the ground and then would go back up again. It was also a differant color than one might imagine from a search light. I woke up one of my sisters and pointed the object out. We were within a mile of the hill now and the object(possibly round?) was moving around and occasionally shining the light downward. As we got within a half a mile it rose approx. 500ft from the 100ft it was at and then accelerated at incredible speed SSW and disappeared.
