OT - Unusual sighting near WSMR

Message posted by MT on August 25, 2007 at 19:14:23 PST:

I live a few miles west of White Sands Missile Range. I have witnessed numerous launches from my home, but I saw the strangest thing a couple night ago. My neighbor rang my doorbell and said there was a UFO. My first thought was, great I have a nut for a neighbor.

Long story short, there was a bright green light in the southern sky. It was easily as bright as Jupiter, but green. I watched it for about 10 minutes, for about 5 minutes it remained stationary, then it moved east through the sky. Binoculars provide no better resolution.

I know WSMR does a lot of laser testing at HELSTF, so I am wondering if it may have been a laser reflecting from high in atmosphere. Any ideas?
