Posted: 4/28/2017
Location: Tesuque, NM
Shape: Light
Duration:2-3 minutes
Fast moving star-like light.

I was camping alone and was admiring the bright stars on this very clear night. I was about 8-9K feet in elevation on the west side of the mountains. I had a good wide view of the night sky.

As I looked towards the North, I noticed a light similar to a star moving at a NE direction, coming from the SW. There were no strobes or blinking lights on or around it. It was moving fast and began to slightly change direction towards the east. Then I lost view of this light.

It was traveling faster than any high altitude plane or aircraft that I have ever seen. I am not sure what it was. No noise. No other lights or craft were in the sky at the time.
