Duration:1 second
Circular w/ pointed nose, bright, but sharply defined, large object at high rate of speed, traveling NNE over Sandia Crest.

One (1) bright bluefish-white, yet well defined object, entered my field of view. It was at as traveling about 20° North, from where I was. (As bright and about the size of Venus on a clear night) It was in the eastern sky and crossed over the top of the Sandias, but at a high altitude. It seemed to be ascending at a high angle, as well, although it was moving parallel to my angle of observation, so it was hard to discern the ascent angle, for sure. It was accelerating quickly and traveling at least an order of magnitude faster than any missile, rocket, or aircraft I have seen before. It was circular but with a slightly pointed tip (again hard to see from a distance and from my angle to the direction it was traveling) Frankly, it looked like it was cruising and then shot out of the atmosphere. Humbling, inspiring, amazing! A second similar sighting occurred just before sunrise that same morning. See second report.
