The Spy in the Sky

It’s a bird, it’s a plane, it’s a UFO…..nope, it’s a drone
Before I get into the spy in the sky thing, wanted to let you know that I just posted a three-part article on the main site, about my trip to Truth or Consequences too. Visit there if you are interested in the hot springs spas of New Mexico
As I was driving to Columbus, New Mexico I was startled to see a big object in the sky. I stopped my car to get a better look. At first, I was excited that maybe it was UFO but when it was still there a minute later I dismissed that idea.
I tried to take a picture of it but didn’t get close up enough so I just ended up with a beautiful view of the New Mexico sky. You might be able to see the spy in the sky, as the locals call it, if you look really close……the Spy in the Sky is a dot over the tree near the middle of the photo.
Anyway, when I got back home, I decided to google spy in the sky and see what came up.
Apparently, this is truly a spy in the sky and it has big brother written all over it, as far as I’m concerned. What I was seeing was a pilotless drone that uses sensors that are electro-optic or infrared to literally spy on the folks on the ground below. Like every intrusion the government makes into our private lives, the political spin is that it’s for our own good. In this case, the spy-in-the-sky technology is said to be used to prevent crime.
It’s getting a little too close to what was then a futuristic film with Tom Cruise, where psychics called precogs were used to do the same thing…..gosh, can’t remember the name of that film now.
Anyway, as I sit here typing at my computer, I wonder who is watching.
