This event happened during an usually rainy night in Santa Fe, about a quarter mile from my position. At the time I was outdoors standing on my porch. What initially caught my eye was apparently quick, short movement in the nearby clouds. At first I wasn't sure if I had seen anything or not, but when I looked away I saw quick sudden movement of lights within the clouds again. I've lived at this particular location for seven years, and I've never seen quick darting lights in the clouds like this. As I retrained my eyes again on the light, it appeared to dark straight up through the clouds. There was absolutely no sound, and I was unable to distinguish a particular shape.
