Large craft, suondless hovers quietly over mountains near Pecos NM

The exact date of this sighting may be off a little, it has been a long time since the event. I do remember it was a warm summer night my wife and i decided to go for a ride and the usual ride was up to the mountains north of Pecos NM. As we were traveling i spotted what at first seemed like a bright star on the northern horizon, I pointed it out to my wife and as we kept traveling I noticed that it wasn't shifting as the other stars over the horizon.It appeared brighter I relayed to my wife that it looked like an airplane that was headed straight for us however that was way out of line since there are no nearby airports and besides this is rugged mountain terrain. as we drove around a couple more curves we saw what at the time looked like a giant street light approxamately 100-200 feet above peak to our left. I stopped the car as there were houses nearby and I got out. I could hear people talking however it didnt seem to be about the object on top of the mountain . at this time my wife got out of the car, we were about 1/3 mile from the light when all of a sudden the light started pulsing and large ring about half the size of football field lit around it. the light being emitted from the ring was a light bluish tint and was going around simalar to flowing lights on light ropes I exclaimed to my wife that we shoud leave from there and that we were probably been noticed. A great fear arouse in me as I thought, what if someone took a rifle shot at it which is entirely possible in this part of the country. After the thought I was afraid, what if it could read my thoughts. I could see the object and here is my description. I haven't yet seen any description like it. it looked like a giant childs playing jack with the top and bottem flattened to one third their size. there were three other tips instead of four sides the ones with the little ball tips on a childs jack. The tips were thick and were all attached by a circular sphere, all parts being about as thick as a schhol bus the light blue lights were glowing of the circular shape and the initial light was in the center of the bottom tip of the object. It began to move and disappeared over the mpountain top to the right of us. It never made a sound at all. We tried talking to several people about it, however people looked at us as if we were crazy to this day I wonder what ever happened to us, and if any one else saw it. My wife refuses to talk about it except to acknowledge that we saw the craft. Occasionally I go there during the day because I get the feeling that so much more happened. The whole episode from start to finsh was about 30 minutes.
