Bright, multicolor light hovering in air in rural Santa Fe

After leaving work in rural Santa Fe around 12:15am MDT, two coworkers and myself observed a light in the West that was slightly larger than a star, but changed colors. The lights would change rapidly from red to blue to green to white and then it would repeat those colors on a regular time interval, but the order of the colors would change. Red and white would appear simultaneously.

We observed the light for quite some time, and it seemed to be hovering incredibly slowly and in a somewhat circular pattern. Occasionally, there would be smaller lights that would “shoot out” from the main light – it looked like sparks. Toward the end of our observation of the light, the light in the sky seemed to move vertically slightly.

Our location in rural Santa Fe never has commercial or private aircraft fly over it, and it was far too high in the air to be a helicopter.

None of us have ever witnessed a UFO, and what we saw completely defied any explanation that we could come up with. I myself believe in the existence of UFOs, but the other two do not. What made this experience all the more interesting is that even with skepticism, we all believe that what we saw was a UFO and we all saw the exact same thing.
