5 u.f.o objects seen in sky.One comes close to ground where i ride a bicycle .In daytime.

not sure exactly of the year but it was definatly on a change over of daylight savingstime date, I witnessed very strange objects in the sky.On that day I was told at work that i could go home an hour early but i would be paid for a full day. During those years i rode a mountain bicycle to and from work daily.A bicycle trail that day i rode on my way back home i saw some black figures in the sky .At first i thought they were large raven sorta black birds or something ,thought nothing of it about 1 /16 away .As i concentrated steering my way down the trail and around a corner of the trail one of the objects somehow focused its attention on me and moved closer in front of me , about 30 feet in front 25 feet in the air. I came to a complete /quick stop on my bike. Then i heard noise to my left ,There were two males doing clean up work (raking weeds ,trash,etc.)About 50 feet across large rain channel/ditch, behind alot of industrial fenced areas.They looked at what was in front of me and they got extremely frightened .They must of been mexican nationals seasonal workers .They were saying prayers out loud tone making signs of the cross and throwing their tools /rakes /shovels into their truck ,to get out of there in a hury.As for me ,i stayed still kinda frightened but ,curious at the same time.I took my riding glasses off and the object came a few feet closer and stayed perfectly still.It was a pitch black color and no sound came from it .A shape of oval or as a shape of a large eye ,kinda glossy -it became as it moved up and to the right part of the bike trail.The other 4 or 5 figures seemed to stayed away or as to wait for the one close to me to rejoin them.After a few minutes ,it slowly went back into a formation with the others and then extremely disapeared fast. This was amazing for me to see those objects ,on that day ,confusing although.Because i couldnt figure out what they were . They didnt look like transport ships or saucers ,But maybe a port hole to examine ?Unknown is! what i still call it. But very intelligent is a word to describe that occurance. After they disapeared i kept riding on the trail back home ,kinda trembling and nervous at what i just saw.When i got home my girlfriend asked me "What Happened"? I couldnt talk for a minute still shooken up.I drank water then told her .After i told her she and i noyiced a scent on my clothes.She asked me was i working with fuel or around a generator motor.I told her no I wasnt working around any thing like that . A very strange scent ,almost like the scent around a railroad track where metal wheels travel at a high rate of speed like a burning metal smell. Strange . And to this day i never seen those 2 workers over there by the trail. But i might consider to advertise in a local paper to get in contact with them ,if there still here in albuquerque.But if i dont find them or they wouldnt want to talk,its ok .At least i know i wasnt halucinating ,they saw it too.And i want to see the objects again ,maybe to communicate .
