unmoving object hanging in west texas sky.

i I spotted the object shortly after the sun passed blow the horizon. I was looking at the El Paso Star through my binoculars and noticed 2 objects silhouetted aprox. 2 mils above the horizon, at a magnetic azmuth of 275 degrees (west). one of the obeject turned out to be an airplane, and continued to watch the other object believing it to be an airplane also.

After the object hadn't moved or changed for 5 min i called my wife out to look. she whatched it for a few minutes and i continued to watch till darkness hid the silhouette.

the object didn't move change shape or size, and hung in the air the way man made things don't. I am a US Army veteran.
