Location: Deming (somewhere near), NM
Shape: Changing
Duration: 20 minutes
Characteristics: The object emitted other objects, The object changed color
The shape-shifting object danced around at various speed, height and direction. No man made object could fly like this.

The object was sighted from our moving car on US HWY 10 E. The object was sighted in the southern direction against the sky and some sharp hills (or mountains). It was dusk so the light was dissapating.

At first we noticed a black spec in the sky miles away that seemed to be moving. The object would seem to hover, then accelerate at abnormal speed, slow down and would rapidly change direction at high speed. At times it would dissapear, then we would see it again in a different spot, at a different height.

The object then appeared to be silver and more football shaped. The object was literally shape shifting as we watched. We saw tear drop shape, diamond shape, flat shape.

At one point the object faded from view and near its previous location we saw small white orbs dashing away from where it was hovering. I saw approx 3 to 4 orbs shoot out. They kind of fish-tailed around really fast and then faded. Then the object re-appeared, silver again and blimp shaped. It was on one side of these sharp hills in the distance and seemed to be dancing around in all directions, like it was teasing us.

For a while it seemed really close to the hills almost like it was teathered. The hills had to be miles away. We travelled far enough that we could no longer see the side of the hills that it could have been teathered to and it appeared at the opposite side of these hills. If this were some sort of blimp teathered to the ground somewhere, it would have been impossible for us to see it from both angles. We video taped the object but because of the color of the sky mixed with us being in a moving car it is almost impossible to see.

We did pull over at a truck stop and I got a picture of it with my digital camera. At that point the object was fish shaped and did not move. If it were something floating or teathered that high up, surely the wind would have been blowing it around, but it was still, as if posing for us but too far away to see it clearly. After leaving truckstop it did dissapear from view completely as if it stayed near that area.
