Two UFO Sightings in New Mexico
Witnessed and Photographed
May 3, 1998
Thirty days after the
first incident, Gregg Fisher and I began our return to Dallas, Texas via Arizona and lower New
Mexico. At approximately 8:30 A.M. on May 3, we left Eagar, Arizona and
headed east on Route 60 towards New Mexico.
Approximately 2 hours later we began to pass
through the desolate Plains of St. Agustin and eventually reached the National Radio
Astronomy Observatory, VLA Telescope site located between the towns of Datil and
Magdalena, New Mexico. A picture taken of part of the VLA telescope array is shown
Prior to arriving at the Observatory, an object appeared several
times on the driver's side of the truck. However, Gregg, who was driving,
felt t it was a small airplane.
We stopped on the side of the road by the Observatory. Shortly thereafter,
spotted an object in the northeast sky, approximately 1 mile from our location and about 35
degrees above the horizon. The sky was clear and cloudless.
After viewing the object
through his binoculars for several seconds Gregg distinctly felt it was a
small airplane. I
pointed the camera at the object and found it in the viewing lens. With auto focus
on infinity, I snapped off 5 pictures in about 5 seconds. I could not tell what the object
was through the camera lens. It was small and appeared as a whitish spec.
An examination of the second set of photos and their respective computer scans shows that
the object in photographic print #1 of 5 was composed of several ball-like segments with an energy
field/aura surrounding it. Incredibly, the object closely resembles the 3-ball-like
configuration seen in print #1 of the first incident taken 30 days prior to this event.
This raises many questions
including the possibility of being followed by the same object.
A 50X photo of the object and a 1X, digitized/enhanced version are shown below on the
right. They can be compared to a similar object photographed 30 days earlier on the left.
incident is part of a publication accepted by the Mutual UFO Network (MUFON)
was one of their feature stories in their July, 1999 issue.
