Extremely close large object hovering over side of road with immense lighting in unworldly strobe motion suddenly object was miles awayDuring a long-distance drive home to New Mexico, on Saturday morning, 2:30 A.M., January 31, 2009, after our experience with unexplainable phenomena, my wife looked to the side of the road and said, “We’re at mile marker 56 on highway 56.” I recall riding out of Oklahoma on the Santa Fe Trial heading toward Springer, New Mexico. It is a dark, dead, straight stretch of road. More than fifty miles ahead, we could see an active city of flashing white glow. As we neared the city of lights hovering over the left side, my wife pulled off the road and she said, “Look at this!” I saw a spectacle of the brightest white flashing light ever experienced. The object was hovering approximately 40 yards away and 50 feet above the ground. It was so bright in the night sky that I could not make out the shape of the object, or objects. It was hovering, but not completely stationary, as it slowly wavered 10 degrees down it’s path. There was no sound. I peered into the luminescence as I looked up to this swiveling white light at the top sending beams high into the dark sky. Below, there was a row of blue lights possibly stretching 30 yards across. I franticly repeated, “What is this?” My wife, my eighteen-year-old daughter and ten-year-old grandson were speechless as we, all, looked on in awe. This experience lasted a mere minute before I resolved quickly, “I’m gonna grab my camera”, reaching in the back window for my camcorder. Suddenly, as I said this, the lights/object strobe-shifted miles down the road. The movement was unworldly as there was no humanly audible sound nor any notice of motion to reach it’s distance. I, still, thought to capture the distant lights to record ‘something‘ of the phenomena. Again, suddenly, as if there was connection of my intentions, the object shifted considerable distance down the road to be a mere glow. Within two seconds, the object was here and then had nearly disappeared. I felt cheated. My wife began turning the car around until our daughter cried out with all her fear and common sense, “No, don’t turn around! Do not turn around! Do not go after that thing!” I had never seen my daughter so scaredLooking through the rear window of the car, perplexed with the sudden distant remaining glow, I considered our fortune to live through this experience. I was, almost hypnotically, mesmerized sensing a lapse of known reality by the object’s peculiar rapid movement. Now, I question previous understanding.
