Duration:15 minutes
followed for about 15 minutes by saucer like object which disappeared at low level across desert in New Mexico in 1966.

While driving across country in 1966 from Calif. to Fla. approximately at midnight something began following me. It was just a soft light. I turned off my lights to see if I was getting a reflection. It didn't go away. I pushed my car to 100+ but it stayed with me. I slowed down to 25 or so and it was still there. I couldn't stand it anymore so I stopped and got out to have a look. It was just a small white light in what looked like horizontal bars.

There was no sound and it was about 50 feet away. I got back in my car and resumed my trip east. The object stayed with me a couple of more minutes then made a lateral movement to the left. It ran in the west bound lane a few seconds then turned on another light, 2 in a vertical position. shortly it made a left to the north across the desert. end of story.
