I'll try to keep this short-ish, and if anyone wants more detail, please ask.
I live in Edgewood, NM. About two months ago, at around 3am MST: I was outside in the drive way, listening to music in my car.
An aerial vehicle passed over the Northern most end of my house and directly over me (though I was not centered beneath it, it was slightly offset to
my right hand side), moving in an Easterly direction. This path took it out and over the small valley that I live in, and essentially through the
middle of the neighborhood therein.
I would estimate that the vehicle was no more than 50-100 feet above the roof of my house when it passed. It was dark, but the vehicle was so low that
I could almost use the sort of phrases like, "It was so close I could reach out and touch it." It was moving very slowly, it had two circular lights
on it, and it produced a very faint sound akin a light hum. The lights did not illuminate either the ground or the craft itself, and there was no
visible projection of light in any sort of beam or field.
It flew over my house, then over me, then over the neighborhood and into obscurity. I did not get out of my car. I did not attempt to take photographs
(I have a RIM 9700 mobile device - do the math, haha).
Does anyone have any idea what this craft might have been?
I believe it was fairly small in size, nothing extremely large, at all. I also considered that it may have been a drone.
For those who don't know - Edgewood, NM is about 40 miles from Kirtland Airforce Base in Albuquerque. Additionally, a company called Titan Aerospace
operates out of the Moriarty Municipal Airport, located about 12 miles from my house. Titan Aerospace was recently acquired by Google.
Here is a link to Titan's website
Here's an article from the Albuquerque Journal about
the company and Google
According to their website they focus their work on high-altitude drone craft, which doesn't match my experience with the valley skimming
At Titan Aerospace, we’re passionate believers in the potential for technology (and in particular, atmospheric satellites) to improve people’s
lives. It’s still early days for the technology we’re developing, and there are a lot of ways that we think we could help people, whether it’s
providing internet connections in remote areas or helping monitor environmental damage like oil spills and deforestation. That’s why we couldn’t
be more excited to learn from and work with our new colleagues as we continue our research, testing and design work as part of the Google family.
I think there were F35s at Kirtland at one point, don't think they're there any more - but they would have been much louder than the whatchamajig, and
had more lighting.
Any thoughts or ideas? Greatly appreciated, all!
