For every ten blurry photos of a "crashed alien craft" near Antarctica or Mylar party balloons mistakenly identified as flying saucers, there's usually a UFO incident worth investigating. This latest run between two airline pilots and an unidentified object over the New Mexico border is one of them.
Here's what we know: On February 24, a Learjet pilot who flew for Phoenix Air with the rear number N71PG drove 37,000 feet as something passed over his plane and moved quickly.
"I do not know what it was, it was not an airplane, but it was – the road went in the opposite direction," he says in an interview with the air traffic controller.
The pilot then contacted the American Airlines Flight 1
"Yes, something has just passed over us like one – I do not know what it was, but there were at least two, three thousand feet above us – yes, it happened right above us."
Asked Whether the object was moving or hovering, the pilot replied: "Could not figure out if it was a balloon or not, but it was only really bright light or could have had a great reflection and was some thousand feet above us opposite direction. "
You can hear part of the conversation between the pilot and the controller below. 
It is interesting to note that a third pilot repeatedly jumps into the conversation and calls the object a UFO (though it looks like he's joking).
According to a FAA spokesperson, "We work closely with a number of other agencies, handling military aircraft and civil aircraft of all types safely every day, including large weather balloons." 
Meanwhile, the Phoenix Air Group Vice President Bob Tracey said, "[The Learjet pilot] said the only thing that was different about it was that it was just so bright." The look was so intense that it did could not do it. "
Whatever the matter was, we suspect it was not a Mylar party balloon.
