Bright, quick flashes of light directly above my house in Albuquerque

I was in my backyard, on the patio, and heard a hum, like an engine or generator starting up.

A couple of seconds later, about half of the yard became illuminated, without any sound, from a bright light directly overhead for maybe a second.

After that, a quicker flash of light illuminated a smaller area in the yard, again without sound, about twenty feet to the right of me, immediately followed by a even quicker flash of light. The hum and flashes didn’t last longer than 5 seconds.

It was not a spotlight or the sweeping lights used to advertise a new nightclub opening. No other houses or yards, as far as I can tell, were lit up.

The light was not far off in the distance; it seemed like it was right above me.

I did not see any objects at any time.

My home is near Constitution and Morris.
