I was traveling on Interstate 40 at 7:00 when I saw a beautiful sunset of the desert, on vacation on the colorado river, in Needles. I noticed a small red, contrail from an airliner. I at first glance traveling 60mph, om I-40, thought how beautiful the contrail was. Then I noticed it was "staionary" and not moveing, after 15 minutes. I then, thought perhaps, it was a comet. Since I have not followed, any reports on comets like Hale/Bopp. This contrail, was, then " degradeing" yet, a new contrail was being formed. I could see clearly, a "jet" large airliner being, in slow motion, or stopped in the sky. Below that a small round, grayish "U.F.O." wa dancing, and going back and fourth, under the airliner. The airliner was stationary, burning fuel, and creating a contrail, as this UFO hovered about 7 thousand feet "under" the large liner. I noticed many people watching this in the Bartow, Daggaet(Solar Power area)and this, was 50 miles from Edwards airforce base. I clearly saw a round UFO,and this jet, with small contrail, and it was redish, with the sun, setting, and was below the hortizon, or mountains. It was "beautiful" and "spectacular", and was the most bizzar, thing I ever see. I felt it was showing off for all the cars traveling along I-40, that evening. I called the Highway Patrol in Barstow, they said they got hundreds of phone calls on this. They said it was a helicopter. I say it was a UFO, round, gray, and makeing a motion, for attention. Then after I was under it, the UFO , went away, and the "airliner" was free, to travel, to its destination.
