Full Description & Details

I was driving back to my home in Colorado Springs Colorado after vistiting my family in New Mexico. It was late May, 1993. I was traveling north on Interstate 25 around 0100hrs in a 1987 Mazda RX-7. I had the "moon-roof" retracted to keep me awake during the long trip and I was listening to music as I drove. The night was very clear and I could see many stars. It was around 52 degrees F that night (as I recall). This sighting took place only a few miles north of the New Mexico/Colorado border.

As I was headed north, with the Rocky Mountains to my left (west) I noticed out of the corner of my eye several "green balls" which were at an altitude of >= 1,200ft ASL. The first thing I did was turn down the music. I had read about "UFOs" before so I thought I had some idea of what I should do. However, I wasn't "ready" for this - they came out of nowhere and startled me pretty badly.

With my moon roof back I looked up as 11 (eleven) of these "green lights" passed over my vehicle. They were in a rather tight "formation" and, at first I thought they might be meteorites or "space junk". However, these thing were moving fast! I estimate their speed to have been from 1,200-1500 mph, at least.

They didn't give off any noise or sound, not that I could hear anyway. But the strangest part is, after this formation went (over, I think?) the mountain range, yet another group of them appeared (I didn't count how many objects were in this group, but it had at LEAST as many as the first group so maybe more than 11 of these things) and they were the same, flying at the same altitude and their speed seemed similar (1200-1500 mph) as well.

There were several people on the highway (I recall around 3-4 cars headed North, none going south) and someone else also stopped to watch. After the second "formation" of these lights went over, a third, fourth, and all the way up to the thirteenth formation of lights, ALL the same went over and finally this "encounter" stopped. Thirteen, all looked identical and I don't have a clue as to what they were.

I checked with an astronomer friend of mine the next day back in Colorado Springs. He did some checking and that night told me that there is "no way this was a meteor shower" and I take his word for it. I had never EVER heard of anything this strange before but later on (about 6 years later), I heard something else, and someone else mention "green fireballs" in New Mexico so I don't feel like I'm insane at least. I know what I saw and would take a lie detector test if anyone asked me to do that; I would swear to what I saw under oath, but I wouldn't be able to tell you or anyone else just what those things were for I haven't a clue.

Witness Background

I am an electrical engineer with a BSEE in my field. I have worked on and helped design parts of the F-16 Fighting Falcon, as well as the F/A-18 Hornet for the military. I too was in the service from 77-81 but I was in the Army. I have flown several times in both of the aforementioned aircraft and, although I can't say I know everything about aviation or "aeroforms" I do know for a fact that what I saw, those "green things" were NOT something in our military inventory nor that of the previous "Warsaw Pact" nations nor any NATO allie would posses such incredible technology (assuming that is what this was and not something "natural") that I know of.

Other Comments

I do have a question about thse so-called "scoop marks" people claim to have. As insane as it sounds, I do have two of them and anyone can see one of them for it is very clear and obvious. One is on my left shin and it is oval and shiny. Doctors have asked ME what "is that thing" and I have NO clue!! And no, I'm not "crazy" of prone to fantasy either. I also have one that is not as pronounced on my chest but, unlike the one on my shine it is fading away AND it is a different shape as well (one on the shin is oval shaped, one on my chest...dead center, is triangular shaped and fading away). Doctors always ask me about both of these (if they see them) and I can't expain what they are. I don't believe in "little green men" at all. However, for the past 10+ years, I have been "different" in ways that are hard to describe. Much of this is very personal and I fear "going public" with this information but I am at the point where I have to do SOMETHING for I do need some answers. If anyone there can clue me in to what would cause such strange marks, please contact me and let me know. I do NOT recall ever being "abducted" or anything like that but I do have nighmares sometimes.

Hope this helps and thank you,
