UFO sighting just south of Raton, New Mexico on December 1st of 2016

I was driving through northern New Mexico, and I was in the middle of nowhere. There were no vehicles, no building, no planes. Nothing. Just me and the road.

Suddenly a shimmering object appeared about 50 yards in front of me, just slightly off the ground and moving about the same speed. After about 30 seconds, the shimmering cloak fell, and a UFO was revealed. It looked more cylindrical than most pictures I have seen.

I didn’t feel in danger. It just kept flying in front of me. Here I am in the middle of nowhere with no GPS, no phone, and no way to record what is happening, and a UFO is giving me an escort down a little 2-lane, windy country highway.

This lasted about 5-10 minutes. It eventually cloaked, and then about 30 seconds later, it kinda “poofed” and I drove through the vanish.

It was the craziest thing I had ever seen.
