UFO floats over, truck stops, distributor is stuck to inside of roof, magnetized.

I was driving on 84-285 from near the opera to Santa Fe. On my right, above my head, coming from the Los Alamos area, appeared the biggest thing I had ever seen in the air. It "floated" right over me, from the passenger side to the drivers side and kept going. It was totally silent but had a luminescence. As it went over me, my old (real sheet metal) Ford truck stopped. I turned off the radio, which was still working. The truck would not restart. I had to call a tow truck. My cell phone worked. The next day I called my long-time mechanic ((name deleted)) and asked him what was wrong. He said to call the next day. The next day he told me"You've got to come see this to believe it. I've been a mechanic for 40 years and I've never seen this happen." I went down to the shop. He said "I've seen distributor caps crack, but I've never seen an entire distributor pulled out and exploded." He opened the hood, and there, magnetized, and stuck to the inside top of the hood, were the pieces of my distributor! He asked "How did this happen." I said "((name deleted)), you don't want to know!"
