Shape: Rectangle
Duration:20 minutes
Super fast neon rectangle being chased by Air Force jets.

At approximately 0045 hrs on November 3, 2008 I was awakened to the sound of Military jets which circled the entire city it seemed. We have Kirtland Air force Base here in Albuquerque and out of the 25 plus years I’ve lived here I have never ever heard them fly any sort of war game or sortie this late much less on a Sunday night over the entire city, and much much less with their after burners on!

I went outside to see what was going on as their behavior made me think something was definitely not right. Once I got out in the driveway of my house I saw one of the jets at about 9,000 ft altitude just shredding across the sky. He made a couple really crazy maneuvers and then headed north of where I was located. I was looking south.

As soon as the jet made it approximately 4 or 5 miles north of my home, my attention was caught by two other jets following the previous jet. (I believe they were either F-16’s or F-18’s). As soon as they all were north of my location, as I was still looking up I saw a tremendously bright purple rectangular shaped light moving straight southbound at a speed that no human made aircraft (that we know about) could travel at. The object was gone as soon as it had appeared.

About 20 or so seconds later the jets flew over again in a v shaped three man formation and were still going full after burner. After this they (the jets) all headed straight south seemingly after the object and disappeared.
