Location: Rio Rancho, NM
Shape: Unknown
Duration:25 minutes
Unmoving pure white light turned to orange then faded over Rio Rancho, NM.

The object was too small to clearly see the shape. The sun had just set so the sky was light when I first spotted the object. It was larger than a star. More like the size of a plane from a distance. The object seen to the East of Rio Rancho,NM was pure, brilliant white. It was not round but the shape was not clear. It may have been diamond shaped. There was no movement. As the sky darkened the object slowly turned an intense orange. It then began to fade until it was no longer visible. There was never any motion. It remained in the same place the whole time. It seemed to stay the same size also but as it faded it could have changed size.
