Location: Faben (50 mi east of El Paso), TX
Shape: Disk
Duration:5 minutes
I witnessed 3 silver, disc-shaped objects that were at a very high altitude which hovered and at times made a triangular formation.

On March 15, 2004 at approximately 3:00 pm I witnessed 3 UFOs just east of Fabens, TX in the north, northeast skies about 70 degrees above the horizon. While fying a kite, I noticed what appeared to be 3 silver objects that were in the shape of discs. They were at such a high altitude (25,000 ft.?)it is difficult to describe them in detail. Imagine a commercial airliner flying at 35,000 feet without a contrail. But instead of travelling in a linear path, these 3 objects were hovering and occasionally rotated around each other (changing positions). During their movement, they would also align themselves in a triangular formation. I pointed out the objects to the person with me, who also witnessed the UFOs. After about 5 minutes of observing the UFOs, they disappeared. I am not sure how the UFOs departed, but when I looked away and tried to refocus my eyes on the objects, they were no longer there. I have researched some of NUFORC's UFO reports, and the only comparable report I found is the one that occured on 7/19/00 in El Paso, TX, only 50 miles west from my UFO sighting.
