This sighting occurred when I was attending the 4th grade in spring of 1959 in Hobbs, New Mexico.
We were outside at recess and I noticed several children on the playground looking up in the sky and pointing.
I immediately looked up, and saw a twinkling point of silvery white light about ¾ of the way to directly overhead.
The point of light, as I looked at it more closely, was composed of 3 smaller lights, moving in and around one another.
It didn't appear to be moving, but seemed to be staying in one spot as I watched.
Shortly after I saw it, recess was ended and we had to go inside.
I have told this experience to many people, but never reported it to any UFO organization in this way.
I decided that it might be important to somebody, so I am submitting it now.
At this time I am 67 years old. but at the time of this experience, I was 11 years old.
