Location: Santa Fe, NM
Shape: Fireball
Duration:about 5 minutes
Pretty large, very bright, white ball with flames coming out, caused power to go out in friend's house.

I heard all the dogs in my neighborhood start to bark a lot, so I went outside to see what had happened. There was a big white ball, very bright. There was what looked like flares of fire coming out of it. The object was smaller than the moon, but bigger than a planet. I don’t really know how to describe the size. It lit up the whole sky. There was a very slight flashing to the light. I called my friend (who lives about 10 minutes away) and began telling him about it. About 30 seconds into the call, the UFO disappeared. At that moment, my friend’s lights flickered and all his electronics stopped working. However, everything in my house was fine.
