sighting: Although I didn't see a specific object in the night sky what I did see caused me then and still causes me some concern. I was out on routine patrol as a Base Law Enforcement Officer I noticed the sky turn a bright red color. I mean the sky was the color of red, like a fire engine is red. I contacted our desk who, in turn, contacted Base Operations and they informed us that it was the Aurora-Borealis (Northern Lights). I don't know exactly what I saw but it definitely was weird and, to me, not explained away.

Not to expain away this sighting but I did observe the Northern Lights in this area(Artesia,NM) in 1988. I had just got off of work around 4:00 in the morning. I at first thought there might be a big fire to the north. The sky was red. When I looked closer at the sky I could see what looked like orange-red 'curtains'. These 'curtains' slowly moved and undulated. The people that live up north know exactly what they are seeing but I had never seen this before. I went to bed not knowing exactly what I had observed. Later that morning the news said that there was a rare occurence of the Auroa Borealis in the area.
