Location: Las Cruces, NM
Shape: Disk
Duration:30 minutes
Bright white disk shaped object travelled along side of our vehicle for about 30 minutes.

While driving this morning, west, between Las Cruces and Deming, New Mexic, I noticed a bright circular disk shaped object to the south, perhaps 10 miles away and just above the mountains.

It was bright and very distinct. As we proceeded my wife and I continued to try and guess what it might be. What made me think it was a UFO was the fact that it stayed along side of our vehicle, which was traveling at 75 mph for about 30 minutes, at the same distance and altitude as when first noticed. I thought this was too slow to be an aircraft and too consistent in speed to be a weather ballon, cloud, or anything else. At the end of the 30 minutes the object started to move at an incline in a southerly direction toward Mexico and disappeared.

Photos taken with the iPhone while moving show a football shaped object that does not look as solid as it appeared to the eye.
