The witness was in the backyard facing south on August 12, 2018.
“A shiny, donut-shaped object appeared from the tree line,” the witness stated. “I have never seen anything like it before. I was a little scared at first. It seemed to flip and spin at random. Gained altitude, then passed almost overhead. Its motions smoothed out as it headed north. Sometimes it appeared shiny, and reflected the sunlight, other times it appeared black or dark. It moved north from south of my house until it disappeared into clouds north over Albuquerque. I would guess it covered about 20 miles in two minutes, until we lost sight. My 10-year-old daughter also witnessed the object.”
New Mexico MUFON Assistant State Director John Fegel closed this case as an Unknown-Other.
“Some inconsistencies, object not described as high-altitude but said sometimes to reflect sunlight at midnight.”
Los Lunas is a village in Valencia County, New Mexico, population 14,835.
