Description: I sent this report to MUFON. They had no clue what it might be. I'll send you the reports if you would like. So far the photo that I took that night has not been seen by anyone in the proper circles. On May 3rd at 9 PM I went outside to see if I could see the Trigo Fire that was burning 15-20 miles south of McIntosh, NM. I looked up above the fire area and saw a lot of colorful flashing lights, though it might have been a couple of helicopters. However, it moved really fast about an 1" from 15 miles away. That was a long way over there. I went for my camera ( 5.1 mega-pixel Sony Cyber-shot W5 Digital camera) and took a lot of shots. One shot came out pretty good for that distance. I steadied the camera really well on top of the car on moon light setting. As for the colors you are probably not going to believe your eyes and the shape is not to be believed. It was there and I have the shot! In this case seeing is believing. This shot is one in a life time. The first shot was how it looked from that distance with my 3x lens out. It was a really clear night.

Comments: It is difficult to tell from the photos much information about the shape and movement of the lights. However, the witness said that he steadied the camera on his vehicle. If this is true, then the "light dispersion" would likely be due to movement of the lights. (Of course the lights would be the shape of the object if no movement occurred.)
