The witness and her brother were about 41 miles outside Roswell and stopped along Pine Lodge Road at 9:30 p.m. on July 3, 2016, when the incident occurred.
“We were standing in front of Chuck's pick-up truck facing southeast,” the witness stated. “Altair (brightest star in the constellation Aquila and the twelfth brightest star in the night sky) was in our clear vision in front of us. I had tried to focus my mini cam on the area when we first arrived, but because there was no moon there wasn't enough light for the camera. Chuck was sitting on the tailgate of his truck and noticed a single flash to the northwest. He thought it was a meteor coming straight in but never saw additional evidence of this. Chuck thought the flash could have been an iridium flare but never saw additional evidence of this either.”
