April 22nd 1998

Las Cruces, New Mexico

April 22, 1998, 10:30 AM

This was related to me by my brother. At about 10:30 AM on Wednesday, April 22, 1998 he was traveling east on Route 10 in southern New Mexico west of Las Cruces, near the border of Luna and Dona Ana counties, when he saw several cars parked on the side of the road with the occupants outside looking up in the air. He glanced over where they were looking and saw a stationary white object. He stopped also, got out and began to observe the object with the others. He said that it was a typical "saucer shape" tilted upward at about 10 to 30 degrees from vertical. It was about the thickness of a pencil held at arms length and at about a 60 degree angle from the horizon. He judged it to be about several miles away and a few thousand feet up, south towards the Mexican border. He and the others observed it motionless in the sky for about 10 minutes. It then began to level out to face to a horizontal position after which it slowly started to move to the south. In a few minutes it was gone from view. My brother is an "open minded skeptic" and since it was too far away to see any identifiable features and did not perform any erratic or unconventional maneuvers he is not saying for sure that he observed a "flying saucer", but it was nothing like he had ever seen before and did not look like it "belonged there".
