Written Report Submitted by Witness on February 17, 2008: While enroute to Deming, NM from Scottsdale, AZ via route highway 70 my brother and I noticed low flying flashing lights, four of them in the distance. We pulled over because it seemed odd to us that there would be commercial airliners flying low and in a flight pattern. The presumed aircraft were directly in front of us as we were looking East at mile marker 362 on HWY 70. I had turned off my lights so we could get a better view, but the running lights were still going. As we were watching the flashing lights (presumed aircraft) and discussing whether they were military aircraft and were they practicing flying, just slightly to the northeast and out of nowhere we visualized six bright lights. The lights were not quite orange and not quite white in color. They appeared tilted and low to the ground. Four of the lights remained almost steady for a couple of seconds then in succession, two more lights came on which allowed us to see the spherical shape and a 30 degree angle on the craft (above the lights). They disappeared one after the other, again giving us a visual of a sphere. Immediately I asked my brother if he just saw the same thing and he replied yes. It was so close (compared to the flashing lights we were originally attracted to) that the hair all over my body stood straight up and my heart starting pounding. I was fumbling for my cell camera and continued looking in the direction we saw the lights, when I saw four of the lights again a little higher, a little more north and in succession. The first light flowed to the second, again giving off a perception that the craft was spherical. I was unable to capture a picture in time. So, as I was again fumbling (shaking) with my camera phone when we both saw the lights directly north of us and further away, this time there were 5 lights that followed in succession. Unable to capture an image as it was too far for a camera phone. Immediately after we saw the 3rd sighting, we noticed the flashing lights come out of formation and zigzag in front of us, still what appeared to be higher than the spherical craft. After about a minute of this, we saw the four flashing light craft take off quickly towards the south and seconds later heard the deafening roar of what sounded like jets. We waited for another 5 minutes to see if anything else would reappear, however, nothing else showed. During the few minutes we saw the 3 sightings, we were the only ones on that section of highway, however, shortly after the jets left there were 3 other cars that passed us (one going east, the other two west). I have never seen anything that seemed so odd. Also we had the windows down, all lights off & car turned off after the 1st sighting, but never heard any noise until after we saw the 4 initial craft leave.

Comments: I first thought that these lights might be military flares, but given the description by the witnesses this seems doubtful considering that the jets "showed up" after the lights appeared and the lights moved in different directions. (Flares would drift in one direction and would descend.) The female witness stated she felt considerable anxiety when viewed the appearance of the spherical shaped object.
