The #1 UFO Resource
Autumn of 1980, my friend stormed in from outside around 10 pm ,woke me up and said, "there's a ufo outside!" several neighborhood folks (maybe 20) were also outside watching the city-block sized metallic-looking object floating silently, about 5-10 miles per hour, over the residential street just ne of alameda street in santa fe, nm. it was about 20 feet from top to bottom. it was floating only about 5 stories high, not much higher than the hilton hotel nearby which is 3 stories high. we all watched until it gently floated into the horizon to the ne. the whole sighting was about 20 minutes. i personally was shaking in my slippers at first, but calmed down as it floated away. it's silence was eerie. there were 4 (i think) colored lights at the bottom in a single line, blinking sequentially. there was writing on the sides which looked sort of like russian letters to me. this was during the cold war, but even then i though the russians would not be showing us their technology over a capitol city! santa fe, of course, is only 35 miles from los alamos, the home of the atomic bomb. the sighting was in a santa fe newspaper the next day. or maybe it was an albuquerque newspaper, i'm not sure. it was a long time ago.
