I just want to say that I enjoy your site. I also would like to say, I believe in objects not of origin from this place. I was stationed at Cannon AFB,New Mexico for 3 years. In that time I recall seeing at leat 3 UFO's. One was hovering over base housing, was in the shape of, don't know what else to call it but snow cone shape, was all silver, I remember it very clearly. It was on a Saturday, I was driving off base and saw it, at that time a F-111E throttled up and took off, which was unusual for a Saturday. I flew right past the object and immediately landed, I presumed it was one of the two alert aircraft. The other two were just smaller or more high altitude objects that were not clearly visible. The time frame for the sighting at CAFB was around April-May  as I can remember it, not exactly sure, has been a while. I remember clearly that it was on a Saturday though. I remember walking out to my car and driving out to the main road that runs through CAFB. Was a clear day, a Saturday. As I was driving twords the main gate I heard a F-111F or F-111E throttling up, which I thought was odd for a Weekend. At that time I looked over to north, over base housing(across highway 60-84) and noticed a silver looking object hovering in one place. At first I thought it was a weather balloon or maybe a hot air balloon, but thought it was odd that it was silver. As I was driving the F-111 took off and circled out to the south-east, you could see it circling back to the north like it was coming back to base. The object didn't move any during this time. It looked like it was about 500 feet up or so. At this time I was nearing the front gate, I was apparent that the F-111 intended on doing a fly-by on the object. When it passed, the object seemed to be about as wide as the planes length. The F-111 circled to the south west and entered the landing pattern, and immediatly landed. I was turning onto the highway at this time and lost sight of the object, and never saw it again. [He sent me a drawing showing an upright cone with a rounded top -- GC]
