Sighting Reports 2006

Man Sees Small Dot in Daytime Sky That  Moved Rapidly, Stopped, & Then Sped Off

Date of Sighting: April 15, 2006
Time of Sighting: 4:30 PM MDT
Date Reported: April 15, 2006
Duration of Sighting: 6 Minutes
Location of Sighting: Albuquerque, New Mexico
Latitude:  35.07 Degrees North
Longitude:  106.58 Degrees West
Number of Witnesses: One
Weather: Few Clouds at 9,000 Feet. Visibility 10 Miles

Description (In Witness's Own Words):  I saw a dot in the sky. No condensation trails were present. I tried to resolve image with binoculars, but it still appeared as a dot. It moved rapidly from north to south, moving about 45 degrees in the visual field in about 1 minute. It then stopped and held position for about 5 minutes and then resumed movement to the south east.

Investigator's Notes: The witness did not leave a phone number or email address so I cannot contact him for more details.  It is difficult to identify what he saw given that the flying object was small to naked eye and through binoculars.
