Strange Object in the Sky ~ 8 PM MST Yesterday
I'm in New Mexico.

Last night starting at about 740pm MST

I went outside and saw something in the West Southwest Sky.

The atmosphere was mainly clear with some high wispy clouds...but certainly not thick enough to obscure much.

Anyway, I saw a luminous bright white object in the sky that looked like it was in from space and not from out own atmosphere.

It was far larger than venus (maybe 50 times) but much smaller than the moon. It was also far brighter since It was clearly visible even though the sun was no where near setting.

It looked oval with an extra eliptical white stripe through it's middle.

It did not move... I watched it for like 20 min. It couldn't be an airplane (although maybe a blimp.......but so high up and so luminous.......I thought not).

Anyway. It did dim significantly as the sun was setting turning orange with the central stripe fadding last.

Then as the sun set it looked just like a group of stars like the 7 sisters.

I don't know what it was.......supernova ?....or something else.

Anyone else see this ?

What is it with New Mexico?

Anyway. It did dim significantly as the sun was setting turning orange with the central stripe fading last.
 Quoting: Dr_Kynes 53632

That clearly indicates it wasn't anything astronomical, but something in the atmosphere. (And not very high.)

How was this oval orientated? Pointing up, or sideways?

It was oval pointing strait up...but the stripe in the middle of it curved slightly northwards. The shape was more like an EGG with the bottom more rounded than the top.

It only lasted about 20 min total...but it did not move at all and what remained after sunset looked like several stars in tight formation

Two other posters have said they've seen strange objects recently. One was in AZ, the other CA. I think it was around sunset with 4 lights that formed a rectangle and disappeared when the sun set. He was talking about asteroids, but I don't think so.

My Husband and I saw it too...on the 8th - it never moved, even though it was extremely windy. Jusy sat in the exact same position for about 30 minutes, then cloud coverage blocked it out...

that thread conclusions point more to UFOs than anything else.

no comets there, except for a few unsubstatiated claims of some uninformed posters.

probably a geosynch satellite that only catches the rays in high summer.
if it suddenly winked out 1/2 an hr after actual sunset this is a good bet.
and you should see it again tonight.

Bright Light Over Phoenix Is a Giant Balloon
By Robert Roy Britt, Editorial Director

posted: 12 June 2009 12:57 am ET

PHOENIX, AZ—In a near-repeat of an event last month, a high-altitude NASA-supported research balloon floated over Arizona Thursday afternoon, June 11. It was easily visible, to the north, from northern Phoenix.

And for those who didn't know what it was, it was oddly bright and suspiciously slow moving. (Already Thursday evening, as I was writing this, the local paper's web site was reporting sightings of something "really strange" and "freaky." An airport official called it a weather balloon. Yeah. A huge one.)

I happened to see both events, mostly because I drive a Jeep with no top and the balloons seem to pass over our state right when I'm shuttling my son to Tae Kwon Do. I sort of knew what the first one was. Actually, I figured that one was a weather balloon, whatever a weather balloon is, but I grossly underestimated its size. I learned later that these things are big as a football field and weigh as much as an SUV. They fly as high as 120,000 feet — well above jet airplanes and even above, and behind, the clouds.

This time I was relatively certain what I was seeing, given the experience of the last one. I pointed it out to my family and neighbors ("Really?! That's it?! Well, that's kind of boring," said the adults. "Cool," said the kids.) and proceeded to watch the balloon off and on from late afternoon until after sunset and snapped several photos with my Blackberry; the first pics, during daylight, frustratingly did not resolve the balloon, proving that smart phone cameras stink.

Meantime, a quick web search yielded an online tracking map from NASA and the Columbia Scientific Balloon Facility, which confirmed a balloon had been launched today and was floating over Prescott, Arizona during the time I was observing it.

The previous event in May prompted some to think a UFO was over the state, or at least something inexplicable (Phoenix is known for its UFO sightings).

So this time, I figured it would be useful to offer some observation notes on a very explicable event:

This balloon at first looked like a tiny gelatinous teardrop on the afternoon of June 11, 2009. It moved east-to-west, imperceptibly slowly. It seemed about the size of a faraway, floating birthday-party balloon, but seemingly much higher. My son said it was about half the size of an ant. It was silvery in the afternoon sun, then ducked in and out of the clouds near sunset, when its shape became more disc-like. Even after sunset, the balloon — flying so high — was brilliantly lit by the sun. It was far brighter than the planet Venus (the evening star, sometimes barely visible in daylight), but perhaps less bright than the full moon, though the reflected sunlight was more concentrated. If the moon is this fuzzy O, then the balloon was all the light of that O concentrated into this degree symbol: °.

And finally, after sunset, the contrast was greater and I got a really grainy photo from my Blackberry. It was far more dramatic to the naked eye, trust me.
