Metallic object fell from sky in front of me while I was driving north a few miles south of Albuquerque Airport.

First, let me say that this was not a UFO in the sense of something alien, but it was definitely something falling from the sky (Unidentified Falling Object) on September 8, 2017, at 1825.

I was driving north on I-25 a few miles south of the Sunport exit. All of a sudden, this object fell out of the sky in front of me to my left. It came diagonally across the highway at fairly close range. I was driving past a collection of large white oil storage (?) facilities that were on the left. The object seemed to fall between the highway and those tanks.

It was hard to judge size but perhaps two fists in size might be a good guess. It appeared to be shiny metallic but was not on fire or glowing in any way. Made me wonder if a piece had fallen off a jet flying in that area. If I had time, I might want to drive back there and look on the ground to see what I might find.
