Facing east toward white sands missile range. and saw a bright object appear out of nowhere and fly for less than 5 seconds then it just completely disapeard. nothing i have ever seen around in the area. it was very bright, and not military. no blinking lights. i'm still amazed by what i saw. i've seen objects disappear a few times not thinking anything but this object was very very bright, like how planet venus shines. i hope anybody else also saw it. it didn't seem to just be in the area. maybe the whole u.S could have seen it. i have never done anything like this before but i felt i'm obligated too. i know white sands missile range is an hour away from me but it just didn't seem military or a flare. thank you mufon.
