Duration:15 minutes
Bright white hot light hovering low in early morning and suddenly moves hundreds of miles away in the blink of an eye.

I'm visiting my mother in New Mexico and I walked outside approximately around 5:45 AM to smoke a cigarette, I turned around and looked up at the sky and saw a bright white light in a perfect circle flying kinda.

At first, I thought someone's Mylar balloon had gotten away and the rising sun was gleaming off of it causing it to glow. I kept looking at it and it was moving forward, not up like a balloon would.

It flew over my roof and I saw no blinking lights nor a chem line that might signal a helicopter or jet or plane and I called into my screen door for my boyfriend to come look and by the time I had looked back not two seconds later, it was very far away and in a different direction but still visible.

It stayed hovering in the same spot but still somehow moving further away.

We stayed staring at it until it eventually moved behind the clouds and disappeared. It was a white hot light. I can't ever describe it as man made. It took about 15 whole minutes to fully disappear. It made no noise either.
