Round bright object chase.

I was stationed at Ft. Huachuca AZ in the Electronic Warfare School.

My wife and myself (I was 18 at the time) was driving outside the Fort. We used to drive to a place where we used to meet friends. Mostly a 'hotrod' thing that kids do..

I don't recall the road now, it was a while ago. It went to a shallow river/stream in the desert where the soldiers would meet to party under a bridge.

When we were about 3 or 4 miles outside of town, we saw a round bright object crest the hill behind us at about 100 yards. At first I thought it was a truck but as it appeared it was very low to the ground (20-40 feet at most..) following the road to the side. I saw it first in the driver side mirror. Then I turned around and saw it. The object was very bright. It was large about 50 feet in diameter. It was hard to tell exactly how large as it was so bright. It lite up the road. The light was a 'white' light. Very brilliant. I could not make out any detail as it glowed so bright.

My wife yelled to me to get out of there. She kept saying 'Go..go!'..I speeded up and the object came closer. We went to a side road and I spun the car around and the object went into the desert as if to cut us off.

I did a u-turn on the dirt road and and headed back in the opposite direction to the Fort. We were both shaken up.

I had never seen anything like it before.

I did not tell anyone as they would not believe us.

What I remember most that frightened me is the feeling I got. I can't explain it, but I felt it was 'hunting us'..maybe the wrong word but I knew that I could not stop and had to keep driving.

I do not want my name used or my identity revealed.
