Blimp-like UFO seemed to track New Mexico witness

A New Mexico witness traveling westbound along I-10 near Deming reported a blimp-like UFO with “no wings or propellers,” according to testimony in Case 63124 from the Mutual UFO Network (MUFON) witness reporting database.

The witness was heading to Tucson when the object was first seen about 8:06 a.m. on February 3, 2015.

“In the sky about half of a mile south of the freeway I saw the side view of a blimp-like object in the air, in front and just a bit below the top of the first hill on the Deming side,” the witness stated. “The object then moved above the hill and to the other side, and almost seemed to track with us for about 29 minutes.”

The witness also reported that there was also a car vs. truck accident on the highway heading west that morning.

“When I first saw the object I thought it was as UFO, because I could see it close enough that it had no wings, or propellers, and it was not a blimp, because they have a rectangular shape coming out of the bottom center, and it hovered for a while before it moved.”

The passenger in the witness vehicle tried to explain the object – but eventually agreed that it was a UFO.

“She then looked up ‘Deming UFO’ on the Internet and found a story that described to the letter what was happening to us. I was excited to see it and I did all I could to send it love from my heart. I did as much as I could to communicate with it mentally.”

But the witness had to keep moving.

“I had a time frame to arrive in Tucson, so we kept driving, and lost sight of the object. My passenger tried to take pictures with her cell phone, but it did not come out.”

Deming is a city in Luna County, New Mexico, population 14,855.

  1. Not saying this is what was seen, but located just to the southwest of Deming is a DHS/Border Patrol facility. The facility is home to a pretty large tethered ‘blimp.’ It’s released at various times to float pretty high carrying a variety of electronic equipment and then winched back to earth. It’s been there for at least 20 years. Just sayin’.

  2. My boyfriend and I were traveling Saturday through Farmington NM 11-07-2015 Around 7:11 pm (The sky was clear and the stars were magnificent) Then all of a sudden we saw a HUGE cloud shaped like a blimp that was so bright inside.
    Before I could get my cell out to take a picture a bright light from the back of the figure was traveling straight through then it burst through the front. We were in a state of disbelief on what we were witnessing then I took a photo. The only thing I captured were two identical lights streaming side by side.
    Then it totally disappeared along with the cloud blimp figure and the sky was clear again.
    Was the strangest thing both of us have ever seen.
    Just thought I’d share.
