Location of Sighting: Las Cruces NM.
Number of witnesses: 3
Number of objects: 1
Shape of objects: Round or oval.
Full Description of event/sighting: Me and my two children (ages 14 and 10) went outside to watch the meteor showers after dark around 9:00pm. We were laying on the trampoline watching the northeast portion off the sky, hoping to catch a glimpse of Mars. We had seen several meteors cross the sky. It was nearing midnight and with Aug 13 being my daughters birthday, we decided to stay out till midnight so we could sing happy birthday to her. We were getting in the sit up position (12:01am) with me still facing the northeast when the whole backside of a small mountain approx. a mile or mile and a half away and more to the east lit up with a strong bright white light. I made the remark, What in the World! at that time both of the kids turned and said, What! At that time an object with a yellowish white rose horizontally above the mountain top. Just seconds later, it turned straight up and became a orange-red glow and traveled fairly slowly vertically a ways and completely disappeared. Just like that,in a snap of a finger, it disappeared. I could not make out details.
Thank you to the witness for the report.
