Characteristics: The object landed, There were electrical or magnetic effects
Silent, jet-shaped, beige hovering object viewed. Magnetic interference with watches.

While driving SW on I-25 between Albuquerque and Deming, off the highway (west side) a large jet-type vehicle (bigger than a 747) was observed to hover SILENTLY off the ground for about 30 seconds. It was identifiable by shape only. The color was completely beige. No windows, doors, or lights were seen. It lifted straight up, off the ground, like it was on a trampoline, but then hovered for those few seconds, then again completely silent, dropped back down. It disappeared from view. The observers were myself and my husband: 1) computer specialist and 2) Registered Nurse. There was one other vehicle behind us. A white Chevy pick up truck, which did not stop. Our photos of the object were mysteriously blank. Our watches stopped at some point during the viewing (around 1530).
