White UFO Over New Mexico And Texas

On September 28th, 2011, me, my husband and his dad, were traveling through New Mexico, heading East on Interstate 40, on our way to Oklahoma, when I noticed high in the sky, a white object that appeared circular in shape. It was approximately 12:30 PM when I noticed it.

I continued to watch it, and it never seemed to go anywhere. Even though we'd driven for miles, I could still see it up there, and it appeared to stay the same size. At one point, I thought it may have had another circle in the center of it...but it could have been my eyes playing tricks on me, since I was watching it for so long. My husband pulled off the interstate, at a Dairy Queen in New Mexico, and when we were in the parking lot, I pointed at it and said to him, "See...it's still up there!" He said maybe it was a weather balloon, but I told him I didn't think we'd be able to see a weather balloon for that many miles. When we came out of the Dairy Queen, it was still up there in the same spot.

We continued on our trip, and I continued to watch the object. We passed through to Texas, and it was still up there. I'm not sure where we were in Texas, but I'd guess that maybe we were 30-40 miles into Texas (still on Interstate 40), when it finally started to get a grey mist around it, and it disappeared. It was approximately 2:30 PM when it disappeared.

I had watched it for at least 2 hours, and we had to have driven at least a hundred miles while I was watching it. I did get video of it on my cell phone...although it's not a lot. I had a hard time seeing it through the viewer because of the glare from the sun, I moved the camera around trying to make sure I captured an image of it.

I don't know how to put it on the computer though, and would love for an expert to do some imaging on it, and see if they can zoom in on it and see what exactly it is that I saw!
