One night in February, my friend Will and I were in his car driving home. We live in a town called Los Lunas, New Mexico, just south of Albuquerque. As we were getting within 10 miles of our houses (Los Lunas is very rural farm area, so 10 miles is pretty close), we saw a weird, silvery shape in the sky. I thought it was just smoke from a fireplace until we got really close to it.
We slowed down and rolled down the windows to stick our heads out and get a better look. The object seemed to be solid and had a sleek, black-looking exterior; the silver color was like a dust that was floating around the main black craft. Then the evening got really weird.
I blinked my eyes and when I opened them we were on the road by a gas station about a quarter mile away from where we should've been. I was confused because I don't remember Will driving from the shoulder of the road where we were looking at the floating object. I looked at him and said, "Did I fall asleep?" He responded, "What?" and then looked around as dazed as I was. He turned the car around and headed back to the spot where we saw the object. It wasn't there anymore.
We drove to the store and walked around in the parking lot trying to figure out what happened. We both felt sore, like our neck muscles had been tensed really tight earlier. Then I remembered my portable CD player! We had been listening to my portable CD player through an adapter in his car. When we saw the object, we turned the radio off, but not the player. The last track I remembered hearing was track 3. I pulled the player out from under the seat and it was dead. I popped fresh batteries in and it started from the point it was on before the power went out. It was on track 7! So, we experienced at least 13 minutes of lost time.
I don't know what happened on that night, but when we got home we couldn't sleep. It was more of an insomnia rather than excitement.
