Location: Unknown, NM
Shape: Cylinder
Duration:5 seconds
We were flying to Ontario, California from Atlanta, Georgia and were about 1 1/2 hours away from landing. My guess is we were over New Mexico and I believe we were flying at 34,000 feet. I was sitting in a window seat on the right side of the airplane in the very last row. The movie had just ended and I raised my window shutter to look out.

I was amazed to see a shiny aluminum-appearing cylinder, approx. 60 feet long and 10-15 feet wide, pass under the plane from left to right at a 45% angle to the airplane. It appeared to fly under the plane at approximately two to three hundred feet.

The skin of the object had a shiny brushed aluminum appearance, almost like a new un-painted airplane except it had no wings or port holes of any kind. It also had a rounded nose and back and the back of the craft was black in color.

After passing under the plane, it made a sudden jog (no curving or sweeping motion) to the left and shot off in a Northerly direction away from the plane. I was so stunned that I kept thinking over and over "they are real!"
