LARGE BRITE WHITE SAUCER SPED ACROSS THE SKY; STOPPED HOVERED APROX.5 MIN. SHOT STRAIGHT UP;DISSAPEARED.

AS MY GIRLFRIEND AND I WERE GOING TO THE STORE, WE SAW (1) VERY BRILLIANT 'WHITE' SAUCER SHAPED OBJECT SHOOT ACCROSS THE SKY IN FRONT OF US, IT CAUGHT US OFF GUARD SO BAD WE PULLED OVER ON THE SIDE OF THE STREET AND STOPPED TO WATCH. ALL OF A SUDDEN, IT STOPPED IN MID-AIR, IT STAYED IN THIS SPOT FOR 5 MINUTES! I KNOW, WE TIMED IT. THEN WITHOUT A SOUND, IT WENT STRAIGHT UP, AND WAS GONE. SHORTLY AFTER AND ON WAY TO THE STORE WE SAW AN ORANGE AND WHITE HELICOPTER,PRESUMABLY FROM HOLLOMAN AFB,GOING THE SAME DIRECTION,LOW AND SLOW.WE'RE USED TO SEEING STEALTHS, PHANTOMS AND BRITISH TORNADOES FROM HOLLOMAN AND F-16 FALCONS FROM KIRTLAND AS WELL AS ALL KINDS OF OTHER AIRCRAFT AT NIGHT OVER HOLLOMAN AND WHITE SANDS MISSILE RANGE. THIS WAS LIKE NOTHING WE'D EVER SEEN.
