I was coming to El Paso Texas from Hobbs New Mexico, I was on Carlsbad highway entering the Guadalupe mountains when I saw a huge light floating in the air, it had to of been the size of a Wal Mart, as I got closer to it I noticed that the mountain wasnít being lite up. As I was going around the next curve that would of put me right under the light their was a police roadblock, I asked what was going on and the officer said nothing just a standard license check, what made this so weird is their are signs telling people to bring water because you might not see another car for hours, and that night I hadnít seen a car in over a hour. I told my brother-in-law who was a State Trooper, he just said I was seeing things. I know what I saw and Iím 63 now and I can still remember it as if it was yesterday. Getting back to what happened, the officer took my license and held me up for about 15 to 20 minutes and the light was gone when I went around the curve, and their! wasnít any report of a license check either. I was just wondering has anyone else seen anything like this?
