Silver sphere seen over mountain in New Mexico

At approx. 14:00 on Aug 3, 20 miles east of Albuquerque on Highway 40, my husband, a family friend and I,while on a road trip, witnessed a shiny silver sphere fly over a mountain top at a high rate of speed. It then came to a complete stop, hovered a few seconds and then seemed to float away from our position into a cloud partially concealing itself. It then reappeared on the other side of the cloud to our left, hovered, then disappeared from sight. At the time of the sighting we were driving in our vehicle and captured the entire incident on a digital camcorder. Played back in slow motion, aircraft, weather balloons and stars can be ruled out. It was early afternoon, a few clouds and blue skies. All witnesses are adults and were not under the influence of drugs or alcohol.
