Grey Metallic Aircraft Floating Behind the Clouds.

I was with two co-workers and we were traveling west on highway 70, heading to White Sands. We noticed large cloud formations to the north of us. As we were observing the clouds we all noticed a gray metallic object floating next to the clouds. We pulled over on the side of the road and took pictures. The floating object was visible for approximately 5 minutes then disapeared behind the clouds. The film was developed on 10/6/00. Two pictures show the object very clearly. It is similar to the picture on the homepage of this website. I also have to conclude that we did not hear any noise from the aircraft. Pictures will be submitted.

((NUFORC Note: Report was submitted by person who occupies a position of considerable responsibility. We have requested copies of the photos, and will post them if we receive them. There may have been a high-altitude helium balloon in the area at the time, but that is unconfirmed. NUFORC receives occasional reports when balloons are launched. PD))
