U.S. military and civilian authorities are investigating the report of a
Socorro policeman who said he saw an egg-shaped object take off when he
Policeman Lonnie Zamora said he was
chasing a car on a highway late Saturday when he heard what he thought was an
explosion. He said he drove within 150 yards of what appeared to be an
overturned car in a small valley.
"I saw two figures in what appeared
to be white coveralls like mechanics wear," Zamora said.
Zamora said he then walked within 200
feet of the object when he heard a roar and saw a "brilliant white metal
object (about the size of a car) rise and hover about 20 feet off the ground.
It then flew off to the west, rising gradually. I was scared."
