Date of Event: June 9, 2016
Location of Event: Roswell, New Mexico
Message: On the morning of June 9, 2016 at approximately 2:35 A.M. my wife, my wife’s friend and I were coming home from Ruidoso, NM back to Roswell, NM. We were on US 380 (this is a divided highway) heading south toward Roswell and were approximately 17 miles away.
I noticed a convoy of 20 or more vehicles coming toward us from the south heading north toward Ruidoso. This was highly unusual for this time of the morning as to the number of vehicles in one location and they all had their bright headlights on. As we got closer, I noticed that all of the vehicles had yellow, red and blue flashing lights. At first, I thought there had been a very bad accident but as we passed by, I realized it was a military convoy, escorting a lowboy tractor-trailer in the center of the convoy.
As we started to pass the convoy, it was impossible to determine the size and shape of the object being carried on the lowboy. However, once we passed the convoy, it became clear that the object was a disc, approximately 40 feet in diameter. I was able to determine this due to the fact that on the back side of the object was a bank of bright LED lights creating a crest moon effect and the pattern of the lights extended across both lanes of the highway.
Please keep in mind this highway leads to both Holloman AFB, NM and White Sands Missile Range. I did consider turning around and following the convoy but did wish to put my wife or her friend in harm’s way. Also, I realize this was a stealth operation due to the time it was taking place, so as to avoid being noticed by many people and raising questions.
If any of you witnessed this event, I would love to hear from you. If any of you know what this object could have been, please give me your thoughts. I can say this that the object in question was not a TR-7 UAV as it was too large.
I thought long and hard about even posting this but I would love to know what it was I saw that night as it brought back many memories of those things I was involved with.
