One black craft, one large white light, and two smaller orange lights west of Deming, NM.

On September 4, 2018, at 7:20 p.m. in Deming, New Mexico, my wife and I saw a stationary ball of bright white light in the western sky at about 30 degrees. There we no other stars or planets in the sky because the sky was still too bright. I thought it was a supernova!

I ran to our shed and got my telescope which is pre-assembled and is covered only by a garbage bag making it always ready to go. As I looked at the white ball with the telescope, it ejected two smaller orange balls of light. They were flying in the area below the white ball. All three objects could be seen with the naked eye.

As I was scanning the area near the white ball with my telescope, I saw another object that looked somewhat similar to a Harrier jet. It was stationary and was facing me nearly head-on with one bright white light in the middle of each wing. It seemed to be fairly close to the white ball. We could not see the jet-shaped object without the telescope. I have no way to tell how large or how far away they were. After about a minute or two, the jet-shaped object and the big white ball instantly disappeared leaving the two smaller orange balls. They would alternate between being bright and dim. The orange balls remained flying around in the same area of the western sky for about thirty seconds before fading from view.

This whole event seems to me to have lasted only about 3 or 4 minutes. If I would taken the time to get my camera and put it on a tripod so I could take some telephoto shots, I would have missed the seeing the mysterious jet-shaped object. I have since spoken with three other people who saw the big white object and one small object below the big one! They did not have the advantage that I had--a telescope!
