UFO on the ground in the Southwest US

I spoke with a man who had photos of a UFO on the ground. These pictures were taken on July 16, 2003 ((deleted)) in the Southwest United States. He estimates the size at 35 feet across. It looked like two aluminum pie plates together. The top one turned over. The hatch was open and all you could see was black inside. There was no hatch cover rather it looked like the door had recessed into the craft. There were markings on the top and in the center that looked like a white knob. It was silver, white and darker metal. It almost looked like barnacles on the outside. Rough or like paint had been chipped off. But it was totally intact. There was a skid mark in front of it and two wheel tracks from the back through the desert. Either the tracks led to or from the craft. It is not easily accessable ((deleted)). He has offered to ((deleted--drive investigators to the site.))

They have been back since the photo shoot and it was still there. I have notified ((deleted)).

((NUFORC Note: This report is submitted from a highly reliable source, who reports having seen the photos, and who is quite experienced in the field of UFO investigation. The case is under active investigation, the first step of which is to certify that the object is, in fact, anomalous. More information will be provided at a later date. PD))
