No of observers: 1

Location: Las Cruces, NM, USA

Shape: Oval
Characteristics: Aura or haze around object

Black disc with greenish/bluish/white corona traveled parallel with I10 between Las Cruces and El Paso.

Heading south along I10 towards El Paso, an enormous, black, disc-shaped object flew parallel with I10 at a high rate of speed, heading south/southeast on the right side of the highway between Las Cruces and El Paso. It had a brilliant corona effect with white closest to the disc-shaped field of black and then bleeding out into light green and blue pastels. Underlit by the reddish haze that seems to hang over El Paso, it looked like a round rainbow with a pitch black center as it remained heading south. In my mind it was momentarily accepted as a meterorite, until it veered sharply back on it's path heading east/northeast and appeared to go into an almost oval shape as it shot past directly back over the city of Las Cruces. It should have been visible to anyone traveling on I10 south that morning.
