anomaly in the southern new mexico sky

I submitted a report here earlier this week and have not heard back from anyone yet. The reason I'm submiting another report is because since my last report I've found one other person who wittnesed the same event as I did on Monday last. I don't know if you ever got my last report but I will copy/paste it from documents now.........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 gave me the feeling of being solid and not atmospheric in nature, but I could not describe it on more than two dimensions because it passed my whole field of view in only a few seconds. There is a small municipal airport close by and I know what I saw was not the usual scanning beam that one would see from the airport revolving light. 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 guess I’m trying to say that I’m not some kind of nut who “sees things”. I saw what I s! aw and c an not explain it nor can I find any source to ascertain explanation at this point on Wednesday two days 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. Or….maybe you have knowledge of what it was 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.........and that concludes the copy of the report I sent you earlier this week. About one hour ago I found one other person who wittnessed exactly the same thing I did. I asked him to describe what he saw and it was an exact match to what I put in this report earlier this week and in the copy of it just now. I've sent emails to various government agencies and am not getting any reply when I make request for explanation. I did get one reply form NOAA stating that there were no meteorological events during the time of my sighting. I would sure like to find someone who will pay attention to me and possibly help me find a source to get the answer for what I saw.....and now of course at least one other person. Thank you.
