Location of Sighting: Santa Fe, New Mexico
Date of Sighting: August 15, 2016
Time of Sighting: 8:30 PM MDT
Description: Just after dark I was out on my patio & noticed a light in the sky that was not as high as an airplane, about like a helicopter, but only there was no sound. Helicoptors around here are extremely loud. I walked to the parking lot to get a better veiw & to follow it visually. It was a round light and it was not flashing. It went over the city of Santa Fe, NM. I live near the center of town. It went southeast towards the mountains, just up from town and then turned more straight east, over the top of the mountains. Then, it faded out. THERE WERE NO clouds to fade into. We rarely get night time helicoptors, especially in that vicinity. they are usually directly over my area (hospital) and following the road more southeast, & south. I Have never seen a helicoptor even go over the mountains area at all. I have lived here more than 20 years, off & on. I taught college here.
