Two UFOs and one floating military plane in New Mexico.

March 1980, my husband and I were on the way to the Rocky Mountain Siberian Husky Club specialty in Denver, when we stopped for gas in Colorado Springs. It was dark, early evening when we stopped, and I was on the right side (passenger) of the car pumping gas. My husband went in to use the restroom and pay for the gas.

I saw a silver, round, disk craft come into view. The only lights it had were the row of windows that went around the middle of the craft. It sort of floated into view as I stood there staring at it, and I remember that I was surprised that no one else seemed to see it. It made no noise and came from the north. It was traveling so slowly that I got a good long look at it.

As it got closer to being directly in front of me, I saw a “being” standing in one of the windows. It was almost as tall as the window and seemed to be looking right at me. I looked around again to see if anyone else was looking and they were not. When it got directly in front of me, it gently turned and floated off to the east and disappeared off into the distance.

End of story.

Winter 1986, my husband was running our sled dogs up on U S Hill, southeast of Rancho de Taos. It had been a mild winter and we had to go high to find enough snow to run on. We were on our way back in, I was on, “Gus the Beast,” snowmobile, and I was stopped on the north side of the mountain, just down from about 10,000 ft. I was in the shade, sitting on the snowmobile, enjoying the peace and quiet, waiting for the team to catch up to me (I would go out in front to pack trail and be there just in case of an emergency of some kind.) I was looking out towards Wheeler Peak when I felt a shadow go over me. I looked up, thinking that I would see a raven – they would follow the team and often came in ahead of them – but instead, I saw a military aircraft, painted in camouflage, drifting down the valley towards Wheeler Peak. There was NO NOISE! It, just like the UFO in Colorado Springs, just floated away until it was out of sight.

Looking at photos of aircraft, I think I must have seen the Rapture. That is as close as I can come to naming it.

End of story May 1968 I was going to The University of Albuquerque and my boy friend and I were going back to campus from a ball game near the Rio Grande Zoo. We were on Central Avenue when I looked over towards the Country Club area, and saw a silver cigar shaped something in the sky. I looked away and when I turned back, the trees blocked the sky. It was a ways away, and not very big. I doubted if I had really seen something.
