Description: I was between the ages of 15 and 17, and saw certain events outside my home in the northeast side of El Paso, looking towards the area of Ft. Bliss, TX (military base) and I used to have insomnia, so I would look out my window at night and on several occasions between the times of 3 to 5am I would see a bright light far off in the distance many miles away just stay in one place for hours. Sometimes I'd lay down, listen to some music and then peek back and it would still be up in the sky, I realized it wasn't a plane or helicopter because it just stayed in one place, no blinking blue or red lights like normal commercial aircraft would have, nor was it a bright star or planet, because most nights it wouldn't be there, it would be there maybe 3 or 4 days then disappear for weeks and/or months and then come back. I am not sure if they were doing any tests on aircraft in the area at that time, but I found it strange.
I'd see this not too often, but often enough throughout a year or two that I always questioned, but got used to it. But two events happened apart from the 1st one that freaked me out.
The first thing that happened was one night, and I cannot remember the time but it was around the hours of 11PM and 2AM and I saw that light in the same location, floating in the air, thought it was curious because it was earlier than normal and suddenly it began to slowly fly left going northwest, and as it was going I realized, although it was still very very far away, it was flying towards my area, almost floating, never descended or rose, just stayed the same altitude and I remember a light, almost like a helicopter light, directly hit the rooftop of a house in front of my house, almost as if it knew I was watching and wanted to find me. I got so nervous I ran away from the window and ran to my mom. It never made a sound, like a helicopter with a spotlight would have.
Now strangely enough, maybe about 4 or 5 years later in another city, I got a helicopter light shined down on me when I was in college, coming out of my car, and it made plenty of noise, typical blue and red flashing lights in the back, and the area I was in for college had a lot of crime, so plenty of helicopters would fly around and flash their lights, and their sound is unmistakable, so comparing it to the light I saw when I was about 16, that one had no blinking lights nor was it making any sounds. Unfortunately I wasn't brave enough to look outside for weeks or months possibly, so I never saw where it went.
The last thing that happened was the final thing I saw, might have been when I was 16 or 17, the time was about 4AM ish not too sure, around the years 2000/2001 again outside my window. I saw the same light in the sky, far away, floating for about 30 minutes. Then a light appeared next to it, same size, then a 3rd light on its opposite side, all in all about 5 lights appeared in a horizontal row, for about 15 or 20 minutes, then suddenly one would go out, and then another, and the 1st that would go out would come back on, almost like a game one would blink out the other would come back. Finally after about 30 minutes of this, they all blinked out and I don't remember much else, but I know that I waited quite awhile to see if they'd come back, but they didn't. I graduated high school and left the city so every time I come back, I look, but I haven't seen anything in the skies since then.
Just thought I'd share what I had seen, not sure if it was UFO's or strange military craft (since Ft. Bliss is so close by) but it was strange to me and thought I'd share before I forgot all about these events which happened over 12 years ago.
