Shape: Cigar
Duration:3 minutes
A dark cigar-shaped object with no lights that was at least 100 meters wide.

I was driving from between Alamogordo, NM and El Paso, TX tonight and noticed a large dark object to the east of US highway 54. At first, I thought the object was a military blimp without any lights on it. The night was very clear with only a couple of clouds very far to the west over the Organ Mts (Near Las Cruces, NM). There was no moonlight. As I drove, I thought the dark object was far to big to be one of the Ft. Bliss military or border patrol blimps. I pulled over to look at the thing and it was gone. I know it sounds crazy but I'm positive the thing was there. There were no strange reflections on my windshield or anything like that. I took a few photos of the area but didn't get to take any of the object. The sighting of whatever this thing was between mile markers 23 and 24 on US highway 54 in New Mexico (in Dona Ana County). The object was atleast 100m long and vaguely cigar shaped. I could not tell anything about how deep it was. There was no lights on the object and it was dark. It was NOT a cloud.
