Date of Sighting: August 5, 2009
Time of Sighting: 8:45 PM MDT
Location of Sighting: About 15 Miles North of Roswell, NM (See Map)

Description: My brother and I witnessed the most amazing thing I have ever seen in my 32 years of life! While Coyote hunting 15 miles north of Roswell, my brother said "look at the UFO!" Due north was a horizontal string of lights around 10,000 ft up and around 60 miles away near the Ft. Sumner area. (See map above.) The light were VERY large and VERY bright orange. The city lights of Roswell could be seen to the south, and they were 1/6 of the size of the lights we witnessed to the north. The lights were square/oval shaped and lit up in an easterly direction. (They were Like the front of Knight Riders car.) This lasted around 35 seconds then the lights disappeared. Five minutes later a fighter jet (perhaps from Kirkland Air Force Base) was seen scrambling to the area and headed east around 30,000 ft. I don't know what these lights were, but they were HUGE, and I DID NOT BELIEVE UNTIL LAST NIGHT! I used to think people that came to visit Roswell and saw UFO's were idiots. I don't believe that anymore. My Brother was here visiting from Antlers, Oklahoma. He didn't believe in this stuff, but now he does. I'm still in shock from what I saw. I have lots of experience with aircraft, astronomy. We can't make something that large fly.

Second Report by Witness (In Response to Questions): Yes NASA does launch balloons from Ft. Sumner. I enjoy taking pictures of those when they launch them. They are big, yet so small compared to what we witnessed. These lights where enormous!  I have been out here ten years, and I hate to say it now, but I laughed at people who came here with stories such as ours.  We saw something out of the ordinary.  The fighter jet was like a little speck, and I mean LITTLE compared to this thing!   It was life changing!!!! I attached a balloon I recently photographed for you.

Note: The witness has expressed strong emotion in his report. He has made an argument that the lights were quite unusual and leaves open the possibility that the military arrived to "check out" the lights. These lights were likely not NASA high altitude balloons which are launched from the Ft. Sumner area (see photo above). The possibly could have been flares used in military exercises, but the witnesses should have noticed more aircraft in the area. Also I don't know if the area where the lights were sighted is a military operations area.
