sighting: I was driving in heavy traffic from the back gate of White Sands Proving Ground toward El Paso, TX. It was a Sunny day as most are in that area. Suddenly my car stopped as did all the others. We just sat there for a minute and then got out. I noticed, at the same time as several others did, a cigar shaped silver object about 300 - 400 feet long on the ground about 100 yards from us. Several of us approached and when we were about 50 yds from it, it rose and "flew" out of sight. The ground where it had been sitting was like glass. We returned to WSPG and reported it. The next day the glass like area was gone and a only shallow hole existed. The incident appeared in the El Paso Paper only once and then was not mentioned again. The FBI, AF Blue Book, and CID interviewed all persons concerned. Two days later the guard at the back gate also reported a sighting.

I was involved in the investigation by monitoring all the telephones on post to insure there were no conversations about the incident. This went on for at least a month. Several phone calls were made and the fact was reported to the post security and they visited the individuals.

I have never seen any reference to this incident in any publication.
