Sighting Details

On january 17 2017, i was travelling west on interstate 10, in new mexico. when i came to the town of akela, i spotted a dark, oval object, hovering above the little florida mountains, to the southwest. the object must have been at least a 100 feet in diameter. i was able to take a 13 mpix photograph of the object which is not included in this report. i was still able to watch the object when i then moved on to deming. when i came to deming i was still able to observe the object to the south. but the object then appeared smaller, and was possibly moving away. it then became dark, and i was no longer able to see the object. as to what this could have been, my conclusion is that this object could only have been an airship or an ufo. it did not look the least bit like a plane, helicopter or any other known celestial object. i do not know if there was an airship in this area at that time. but pherhaps somebody else can answer that question.
