53. True Story Albuquerque, 1986
Sun Jul 8, 2018, 12:45 PM
Jul 2018

I was in my girlfriend’s back yard and a restaurant owner friend was visiting. We noticed a large sphere above us. Its surface was opaque and shimmering, at about 10,000 feet, as high as the Sandia mountains. It hovered and oscillated there about fifteen seconds. Then it shot northeast toward Placitas, turned on a dime, at about 60 degrees, and disappeared over the mountains in about two seconds. 12 miles in two seconds! Speed estimated at over 20,000 m.p.h.

I never have. Can I now claim to be a victim of "white guys who have have not seen UFO's?" dameatball Jul 2018 #1
