In 1956 a domed, circular UFO landed close to US Highway
70 about 10 miles from Holloman AFB. Vehicles close to
the area stalled and died. Traffic backed up on the
highway. Several people witnessed this including two
colonels and two sergeants. The ufo was on the ground
about 10 minutes. It then took off with a whirring sound.
The Pentagon and CIA along with Air Technical Intelligence
investigated. There was never an explanation
for this sighting.
