a real event

Published in the Deseret News. Date and time is approximate. Object was reportedly seen in several states including Arizona, New Mexico, Utah, Wyoming and possible others. It was described as a meteor. However, I saw this object, and to this day, I have never seen a meteor fly perpendicular to the ground at a slow velocity (3-4 times the speed of a jetliner).

The object was photographed and reported in several newspapers. It was about the size of a volkswagen. I actually saw photos several days later. After I was driving and woke up at my house.
