Amended report of UFO sighting � Approximately 9:00 PM, Thursday, February 10, 2011 � Ruidoso, NM Standing on our deck facing northeast under a clear cold early nighttime sky, I sighted a star like object (slightly larger than bright planet Venus on a summer night) shimmering brightly and moving slowly in a general westerly direction. After a few seconds, the object veered north and northeast and its light disappeared (apparently making a tight U-turn). At this time I thought I was witnessing the landing lights of an aircraft coming in for a landing. However, the lack of lights on the wings and tail was curious. Seconds later, the object reappeared farther west than where I had last seen it. And again, a few seconds later, it veered north and northeast and its light was extinguished. It reappeared a second time, again further west, but shortly thereafter the object flew behind tall pine trees that obstructed my view. Throughout the episode I did not hear any sound emanating from the object. Approximately 10-15 seconds after I lost sight of the object, I observed a high flying plane in the eastern sky also moving in a westerly direction. I felt that the aircraft was following the object that I saw, but keeping a safe distance away. Minutes later after entering my house and telling my wife what I saw, a jet approached from the east (possibly from Holloman Air Force Base in Alamogordo?) and roared overhead, again traveling in a general westerly direction. I am a retired public school mathematics teacher...and I must admit that this is the first time I have ever witnessed such an unusual event.

Interesting. I'm working on an application to harvest UFO sightings from the web and I hadn't thought to pull them from twitter. Although there will be a lot of garbage data in the twitter feed I can probably find a way to make it work. Thanks for the idea!
