DEMING, NM (KRQE) – On February 11, 2014 two witnesses driving on I-10, 15 miles outside of Deming spotted a “white, blimp-like orb” object hovering and then suddenly moved at high speeds, according to a February 13, 2014 testimony in case 54044 from the Mutual UFO Network (MUFON) witness reporting database.
“It never moved an inch,” the witness stated. “Hard to tell how high or far it was.”
The witness was with a friend who was driving and they got back onto the highway, but continued to watch the object.
“About 15 minutes later, after leaving the gas station, it ascended a good 500 feet or so and started moving east while slightly changing shapes. It moved along with our car, maybe two miles from us, and after about eight minutes, it stopped above a mountain and stayed there until we finally lost sight by driving close to Las Cruces, NM.”
The witness tried to rule out known objects.
“The skies were clear so it wasn’t hard to notice an object standing still in the sky. I first thought it was an airplane, helicopter, or blimp. But it is impossible for any human made aircraft to stand perfectly still for that long and then suddenly start moving at 75 mph along with our car. I got excited when I first saw it, but then when it moved, I didn’t expect it, so it freaked me out. I started seeing purple spots in my vision and feeling light headed in a scared way. I think that’s just me though from anxiety. Lost sight as we approached Las Cruces and the sun started falling.”
No images or videos of the object were included with the report. New Mexico was the 25th highest reporting state with 7 reports in January 2014 – while California had 102 reports – the highest reporting state in the nation.
