My teenaged son and I were loading my truck to go back east. The object suddenly appeared over us with a very intense light. We calmly finished loading the truck and then drove off the mesa and onto the road. The craft stayed right above us, even as we drove past the road to 29 Palms Marine Base. We continued east on highway 62. When we got to the Colorado River, the craft suddenly turned off the light and moved faster than anything I had ever seen. It gained altitude and "shot" off toward the E/NE. In 1980, you never saw another car on that road. Now, you meet quite a few. At one point, we both had to urinate. I hate snakes and the desert is their hunting place at night. Since I could see where I was stepping, I wasn't afraid. My son and I both thought the entire situation was strange but decided to keep quiet about it. I was raised on and around military bases and knew this was NOT a military plane. It was just a saucer type object and other than being curious about it, we didn't think much about it.
