BRIGHT LIGHT THAT HOVERED THEN MOVED AT GREAT SPEED.

WE WERE TRAVELING HOME FROM FAMILY VACATION TO CALIFORNIA. WE LIVE IN TEXAS. OUR 2 KIDS WERE ASLEEP IN THE BACK OF OUR VAN. MY HUSBAND AND I WERE THE ONLY ONES AWAKE. MY HUSBAND WAS DRIVING. FOR ABOUT 15 MIN. WE HAD BEE OBSERVING A BRIGHT LIGHT IN THE DISTANCE IN FRONT OF US. WE ASSUMED IT WAS A SOME SORT OF TOWER WITH A BRIGHT LIGHT. WHEN WE WERE LEAVING TATUM NEW MEXICO AND WERE GETTING CLOSER TO THE LIGHT. OF A SUDDEN THE LIGHT STARTED MOVING TO THE RIGHT SORT OF HOVERING, WE THOUGHT IT WAS AN AIRPLANE, THEN IT WENT UP VERY FAST TURNED AND HOVERED SOME MORE TO THE RIGHT AND AT SAME TIME THE LIGHT WAS VERY BRIGHT THE GROUND WAS BEING LIT UP AS IT WAS HOVERING, THEN IT SHOT UP AGAIN THEN WENT RIGHT AT HIGH SPEED TO THE REAR OF US, WE CONTINUED DRIVING, THE LIGHT WAS AT THE REAR AND STAYED THERE HOVERING AS WE CONTINUED TO DRIVE TO PLAINS TX.
