Flying Saucer observed in remote area of New Mexico.

On April 22, 2016, at approximately 6:30 PM, I was driving south on State Road 117 in Cibola County, New Mexico. Near mile marker 32, I observed a very bright light traveling from the west to the east. It was so bright, I pulled onto the shoulder of the road and parked. I thought the object was an airplane. But as the object approached my location, it stopped in midair.

The object then proceeded a little south and landed in a field on the east side of the road. The object landed in a fenced in pasture. I figured it was a helicopter. I just waited to see if it would take off. But the object seemed to be hovering and not sitting on the ground. The object didnít make any noise, which I felt was strange.

I was a little scared, so I pulled back onto the road and continued driving south. While looking in my rear view mirror, I objected the object to take off and fly south directly above me vehicle. When I looked up through my windshield, I observed the bottom of the object. It was not a helicopter. I saw a bright blue light on the bottom of the object. The object was shaped like a saucer. I then realized I was observing a flying saucer. I pulled over and parked on the shoulder of the road.

I tried calling 911, but I did not have any cell service in this area. This road was in an extremely remote area of New Mexico. I just sat in my vehicle until this object flew away. About 20 minutes later, I continued my travel south. I didnít see the object again.
