Posted: 10/11/2005
Location: Silver City, NM
Shape: Light
Duration: 8TO 9 SECONDS
Characteristics: There were lights on the object
bright object emits spherical cloud like something out of WAR OF THE WORLDS.

At 20:43 hrs. we saw a bright light that literally began to form a large perfect bubble of light expanding from some point to the west of the Silver City Mountains.

As the luminous cloud began to expand (white in color with orange) we saw an object heading straight south at a perfect horizontal line with this cloud emission coming out of the end. The light which had a strobe or red light on it quickly disappeared to the south. The cloud grew into a perfect sphere like the blisters around the crafts in WAR OF THE WORLDS. Then the cloud disipated. We immediately called 911 and within minutes they reported that the FAA said it was a missile fired from Vandenberg.

However, I have seen missiles launched and this did not fit the pattern. We could see the object and the cloud, no contrail, just this wierd cloud that looked nuclear.

I was afraid that it might have been just that. But it wasn't. I do always trust what the government reports. I have seen missile launches from White Sands and this looked different. Any comments???????
