Location: Albuquerque, NM
Shape: Light
Duration:~3-5 minutes
Extremely fast and agile green light over Albuquerque

I saw what I thought to be a bright green satellite in the northern sky at about zenith. As I watched with a friend it suddenly “shot” at extreme speed all the way to the western horizon, then back to origin.

It then appeared to be descending as it was growing larger and brighter. After about 60 seconds, it shot again off to the south eastern horizon and then back. After about another 30 seconds it shot at extreme speed north until it was lost below the horizon.

We watched for a few minutes and as it did not return we got into our cars. Just as we did this it suddenly came back from below the northern horizon, paused about a third of the way across the sky and then shot again at a high rate of speed straight east.

Throughout the entire incident there was no sound.

It disappeared behind Sandia peak and did not return.
