Duration:10 seconds
Silent fast accelerating object above Albuquerque Sunport.

The object was directly above Albuquerque Sunport. I looked up at Orion’s Belt and I saw a large dim light. Way to large, larger than brightest star visible. It was moving about as fast as a jet. But slightly faster. I told the other witness “look look look at this” and we looked up and the object accelerated fast but there was no noise. The object moved unbelievably fast. I mean we live near an air force base and see fighter jets all the time, even passenger jets, but this things moved about 5 times that. What was most interesting is how fast it accelerated out of our sight. The object was about as high as an airplane might be about five seconds before landing. It made no noise. Zero noise and it sped off incredibly fast. I told my witness that it’s going to enter a fluff of clouds and we’re not going to see it emerge. Which it didn’t. It flew towards the Air Force base but didn’t appear to land there. It just flew off towards the mountains. It was amazing,! actually. We were not terrified, my witness and I were actually very excited. I told my witness, if you watch the skies you can always pick an anomoly at least once or twice a year. It was very disconcerting that it was so close above the airport, and nobody was able see it. Maybe they did I don’t know. None the less amazing. We were standing near the grassy area north of the Sunport. It’s the road all the taxis wait for flight arrivals by airport near the hotel and vacant lot at the end of the cul de sac.
