CIRCUMSTANCES OF SIGHTING

I [John Gille] was interested in the Dulce area because of rumors related to a jointly (CIA-Alien) occupied underground facility under Mt. Archuleta, and to numerous UFO sightings, as reported by local residents.
A night of observation in the mountains had been planned under the leadership of Valdez.
Since about 7:30pm, we had been playing OUIJA at the instigation of Valdez. Just as we were processing the last person, one of Valdez's sons shouted: "Look! Here it comes!"
(NOTE: I [Gille] DO NOT make the statement that there was a causal correlation between what we had just been doing and what we saw next. I merely report two consecutive events which may or may not have been correlated.)
LOOK OF THE PHENOMENON
The object came from the south at great speed on a flat, straight, rectilinear, horizontal trajectory resulting in a perfectly straight luminous yellowish line. It was definitely not a plane or a shooting star.
There was no sound coming from the object.
The object stopped dead in its tracks near the top of the mountain.
At the same time, it became extremely luminous, lighting at least half the sky. There was a display of various colors: yellow, pink, green, and a shower of sparks.
Then the object folded on itself and disappeared.
