Location: Taos, NM
Shape: Light
Duration:20 minutes
large light, equivalent to car lights 1 mile away, in sky, stationary.

Saw a light, brighter than star, and appeared stationary. Near or in cloud, surrounded by darkness. Near full moon illuminated scene.

Decided to film it, so pulled over and steadied camera. Filmed nearly ten minutes, yet it really never seemed to move, however the light did shift, and could be blamed on cloud movement. At one point, I did see what I thought was a red light emanating from the object.

It's light, white, appeared 2-3 times the brightness of other stars. At one point, it looked like it was leaving, but no turns or sudden movements, and I remained filming, and it remained in the same place.

I have seen these bright stars occasionally and wondered if they were not something else. No sound. Larger than other airplane traffic, no movement, ...so this is so simple, that it seems unlikely. The object on my film actually appears to be an luminated object, with a dark hole in the middle. Peace on Earth.
