Location: Mariano Lake, NM
Shape: Oval
Duration: 10 minutes
Characteristics: There were lights on the object
A low flying oval shaped craft with no noise whatsoever just above the treeline in our vicinity.

On his way to picking us up at my mom's house at 7pm, my husband was driving westbound when an airplane, or he thought, was flying in the south southeast sky. As he made a north turn to the gravel road that led to my mother's house he noticed that the craft was about less than a 1/4 mile in front of him and flying pretty low just above the treeline. As he got closer he rolled down his car window and to his surprise the craft did not have any type of engine noise to it and it was just sitting up in the air not moving at all. There was at least 3 lights on it. One was blinking toward the NE about the size of a flashlight and another one on the opposit side that was just steady but a little brighter. There was another steady light in the center of the other two lights. Againts the skyline, my husband could only make out an oval shape craft about 25 ft. across and had dome-shaped top. Realizing that he must be the only one witnessing this he sped to my mother's house to pick me up, which was only a few seconds away, but the craft was already gone by the time we got back to sighting.

My husbands never had any opinions or beliefs in UFO but he knows what he saw that night was not an airplane or any king of jet. This experience changed his point of view on UFO's.
