Location: Oaxaca City (Mexico), Oaxaca (Mexic0)
Shape: Light
Characteristics: The object landed
Two bright objects that defied normal aircraft behavior.

A few weeks ago, I reported sighting either one (1) object glowing with many lights in the shape of a wide V, - or - many objects glowing as they traveled in a V-shape. That inspired me to continue watching the night sky, now that there have been 2 nights of totally clear sky.

An hour earlier, i noticed a very unusual moon. I could see the entire moon in an opaque way, despite only a quarter shining. The night is perfectly clear.

Around 8 pm, I noticed a very tiny dot of light traveling at what appeared to be a normal speed for small aircraft. However, there were no tracking lights. I watched the object for about one minute, as it drifted eastward, but then it instantly vanished.
I kept watching where it would be if it had not blinked out, but never saw it again.

I can imagine a drone being lit for a period of time to help establish it's location and then having its lights turned off for stealth purposes, but for what purpose? Northern Oaxaca City is not a hotbed of crime, as far as I know.

That hooked me, so I continued watching that area of the sky, and perhaps ten minutes later, still looking at the northern sky, I saw a tiny light which had originally appeared next to a star.

I noticed the object was moving, but not at a normal angle for aircraft. The airport is south of here, not north ! Only a mountain range is north.

Satellite?

It was moving downward at a 40-45 degree angle - so it is hard to believe it was a satellite or plane.

A drone perhaps?

A helicopter however, would not be able to land in the steep mountains to the north of my area.

I am supposing the second object mentioned (which might have been the 1st object I saw) might have landed. It was headed toward the ground, but from a very high altitude.
