Sighting Report
Occurred : 11/12/2017 01:00 (Entered as : 11/12/17 1:00)
Reported: 11/12/2017 1:16:01 AM 01:16
Posted: 11/17/2017
Location: Albuquerque, NM
Shape: Light
Duration:30 minutes
High altitude point of light SE of Albuquerque II

I again sighted this light from my same location on Louisiana Blvd NE midway between Lomas and Constitution on the west side of the street that I had first reported on 10/24/17.
It is the same light I sighted and reported to both NUFORC and MUFON on 10/24/17. It was again changing colors (red, blue, green, & white) while hovering stationary SSE of my location, not making any sound, and at an altitude about the same as that of a commercial airliner.

I go out to my car almost every night around 12:00 AM to 1:00 AM to remove my radar detector from my car so it doesn't get stolen, and I have looked every time I go out there since my previous report on 10/24/17 to see if this light was there. Up until this sighting, I have not seen it since 10/24, and there have been no clouds to obscure it if it had been there between 10/24 and 11/12.

After my report to MUFON about the 10/24 sighting, I received an email from their investigator informing me there were no visible stars, planets, or other celestial bodies in the sky SE of Albuquerque where the object I saw was located; the person informed me there is a visible star NE of my location, but not SE. This light looks to be too low to be a celestial body yet too high to be a helicopter or some other such aircraft, and since it is hovering in the same place for an extended period of time, it cannot be a fixed wing aircraft.

I observed this light for 20 to 30 minutes before going back inside. I first saw the object at 1:00 AM and went back inside sometime after 1:20 AM. I took several minutes of video of the light.
