anomaly in the western sky in southwest New Mexico

I don't know if this is the right place to submit this but at 5:05 am MDT on Monday, July 9th, 2007, I witnessed an anomaly in the sky. I was outside facing the west when I saw an object move across the sky from south to north. It is impossible to judge the size of this object because I didn’t have a frame of reference for depth of field. It did give me a feeling of impossibly large however. It was also traveling at a speed that would be impossibly fast as far as what aircraft known to me would be able to travel. It was oval in shape on the horizontal and had no noticeable trail behind it nor tail of any kind. It was very bright blue/indigo in color with a slight fringe of a lighter almost cream color on its perimeter and was obviously emitting it’s own light and was not a reflection of any kind. As it passed rather low in the western sky from my observation point in southern New Mexico it seemed to have a path that followed the curvature of the earth and not rising in altitude nor was it falling like a meteor might be expected to do when entering the earths atmosphere. As it left my field of view then it appeared to be traveling at about 5 to 15 points north. I am not a UFO enthusiast and have no particular beliefs for or against UFOs. I saw what I saw and can not explain it nor can I find any source to ascertain explanation at this point on Tuesday the day following. I have left emails with the Weather Channel. com to see if one of their experts could explain it along with an email to U S to ask for an email address for the appropriate dept. There has been no response from anyone yet. Can you please give me an email address for someone who may be able to explain to me what I saw. There must be other people who saw this. There must be a simple explanation. Thank you for any help you can give me.
