Summary/Description: It was Friday morning, me and my son 15 years old in the desert coming from a friend’s camp which was off road. We saw an airplane from one mile and my son said oh, air plane. I said yes this is a Saudi Aramco air plane. They have a few of them to shuttle there staff and also helicopters using same route on a daily bases. While we were driving, traveling 30 miles speed we saw a plane and it did not move. We came close to it, it was on our right side not far away, maybe 300 meter in the air. So we stopped to see it. I thought it is going to land or had a problem, but Safaniah is 40 km away so we came to complete stop. The plane still in the same place. I thought it was Harrier fighterplane (saw them during gulf war) but this one is white and so beautiful. The minute we stopped, I asked my son to make right turn towards it and this thing started moving north. We both said oh it is moving now, good but moving at a high rate of speed. May be 10 seconds and it is gone. Nothing else in the sky as it was a clear day too. By the way my son was driving off road and only under my supervision. It was capsule in shape, no windows.
