a hollow blue ball of lighting that turned to a fireball then took and umbrella shape and loomed for a second then disapeared.

when I lived in Las Cruces NM, back in the spring of 91, I was 11 years old and had lived in New Mexico since spring of 1990 (having spent most of my life in Texas).

I was hanging out in the back yard with a friend of mine, a native american by the name of ((name deleted)) (his cousin ((second name deleted)) lived caddycorner to where me and my family lived, In a neighborhood where the stundents of the University lived).

We seen a blue light in the sky that seemed to be made of lightning or electricty at first. It appeared to be a hollow circle shape, with lines of electricity or something going from side to side across the blue outline. As it seemed to rapidly approach it turned a orangish color kind of like a fireball or something, all the sudden it was like looming over us, I like it was going to come crashing into us,

All I could do is just stand there, It happened so fast,as it approached it took an unbrella like shape made of flame above us, however I felt no heat, for a brief second I was afraid, I really couldn't believe what was happening, I stood entranced by the brillance of the colors of the flames. Then it just disapeared. I said to my friend ((name deleted)) what the @#%& was that? He replied that he had never seen anything like it. Nobody ever really believed us, shortly after I moved back to Texas, lost contact with Tim. Recently I been thinking about that event alot, I decided to look on the interent for similar experiences, and here I am.

Tim if your out there, hello, it's been a long time.
