Spring 1999

Albuquerque, New Mexico Triangular

Date: Spring 1999
Time: Approx: 9:00 p.m.

Location of Sighting: Albuquerque NM, Near San Mateo Blvd & Lomas
Number of witnesses: 1
Shape of objects: Triangular

Full Description of event/sighting: I was babysitting my grandbaby. When she fell asleep on the couch I stepped outside to smoke a cigarette. I was standing in the yard in front of my open front door when this very large shaped passed directly overhead. It was flying very low and very slowly and made no noise that I could detect. The object was heading directly south toward the Air Force Base, which is only a few miles from my former apartment where this occurred. I had plenty of time to realize that even if I ran for my camera there was no film, look over my shoulder to see if any of my neighbors lights were on (they weren't) and realize that there was no one else I could show this to.

The object passed slowly overhead and I quickly lost sight of it as it seemed to just blend into the sky. I even considered chasing it in my car but could not because of the sleeping baby inside. It was dark, black, and visible only because it blotted out the stars and it had small lights on each corner and another (red?) light directly in the center. I never reported it because I didn't think I'd be believed and because I almost couldn't believe it was real. I thought that because it was heading right for the military base (Kirtland AFB) it must be one of ours. Years later I began to hear about triangular craft being reported over populated areas and I knew then that I was not the only one to have seen this sort of thing. Whatever it was, it was not trying to hide.

Thank you to the witness for the report.
