I would just like an answer to this. I have no video, no picture since it was around 7 a.m. Even if I did I'm sure someone would say it's "CGI". I'm not here to convince anyone that I've seen this or to prove it to anyone. This morning at around 7 a.m. I took my kids to school. I live in Lakewood, near the mountains that run adjacent to C470. Looking straight down the road is the tallest of the mountains (foothills is more like it). I've lived in this area for years and see that mountain a dozen times a day. This morning, on my way back home to get ready for work, I saw an EXTREMELY large metallic object as though it was sitting on the very top of the mountain. It was somewhat cylindrical in shape and near the top came to a rather blunt shape (kind of like a bullet). It was silver in color and seemed to have some black running up and down the length. I thought that "they must have built something overnight." But, when I left for work, it was gone. I can't for the life of me think of what that could have been. Also, if you could stack this object one on top of the other, it would be appx 8-10 that would equate to the height of the mountain. anyone else see it and if so where were you and could you give your description of this? Thanks...

Im up in dever for school, and over the mountains on my way to school I saw what sounds like what you explained hovering in an odd motion. I lost sight of it since I was in a car.

Actually, this is a pretty stupid reply. It contributes nothing, and a sad and failed attempt at humor.

Wow this is interesting. Keep us updated, like if you hear anything or see anything else.

Could it have been an unusual cloud formation? I know the mountains tend to get some odd ones from time to time. But then again your from around there and probably pretty keen to pick out unusual clouds by now...so I don't know.

At this point the only thing to do is seek others who maybe saw the same thing at the same day/time as you. Do you know anybody who drives the same direction as you around the same time?

How long were you able to see it?

Once when I was 18 I was riding my motorcycle and went around a curve. I saw something in the sky that freaked me so bad I stopped. When I stopped their was a large steel pole shed between me and the object. So I slowly drove forward and their it was.

The object was between two layers of clouds. It was cylindrical and deep dark blue. The sun was just above the horizon.

What it was was a very compact cloud formation between two other loosely packed cumulus clouds. It was so defined it was freakier than hell. To this day I wish I had a camera.

This is why I asked how long of a time you were able to observe it. It took me about 30 seconds to figure out what it was on the second look.

Colorado is weird. My wife and I were staying at the YMCA in Estes Park this past summer. We were playing a game of putt putt on the YMCA grounds when the entire valley filled with this loud noise. It was kind of a swooshing sound like you might hear when a jet flies overhead, but it also had a tone in it that started higher in pitch and gradually slid to a lower one. And it was very, very loud. It reminded me of the THX sound. Everyone just looked around confused. I know the Air Force Academy is near by so i just wrote it off as some kind of plane but who knows. I have never heard anything like it.

Thanks. There were no clouds, it was a very bright morning. It was definitely metallic. I'm hoping someone else saw it too...

I drove slowly so it must have been a couple of minutes. It didn't change or move and it was not a cloud formation. It had distinct edges, was silver in color and seemed to stand right on top of the mountain. It could have just as well been sitting behind the mountain.

It takes courage to make an anecdotal post round here, so you can ignore the Dickhead replies. You saw something out of the ordinary, can you enlarge on it in some way, like was it sunny or cloudy or raining, was there symmetry in the shape, your direction of travel and so on.

Thanks, I've ignored those two, the first time I've ignored anyone. I'll try to expand on this story. It was early, 7 a.m. and bright, sunny day. No clouds and the sun was just slightly glinting off of the metallic "mystery object". Not enough though to make it hard to see. I was heading west, towards the mountains and the highway that runs adjacent to the mountains/foothills, C470. The object was symmetrical in shape and was not a natural feature of the surrounding mountain. I drive in that direction every day, sometimes a few times a day, and have never seen that or anything even close. My thought was to get a better look by using my binoculars, which were supposed to be at home, but I couldn't find them or look too much for them since I had to get another child ready for their school. It was gone when I got back outside. That took about another 45 minutes to leave again, and as I said, it was gone.

I live in FOCO now.. I work in Windsor.When I travelled here by way of CR-33, I.. well I've seen things here too. Things Ive never seen before. Most often I auto-dismiss as normal, but realise later I should have had my cam.

I was driving to work in which I drive west towards the mountains for a bit. I didn't notice anything probably because I was to busy trying to figure out why all you Denver folks love driving 20 mph under the speed limit.

Looks like we have the humor police here. What makes you the utmost authority on humor?

I might add that YOU did not contribute anything to this thread except to critique another member here. Actually it was a contribution. Their maybe another copycat balloon boy dad out there! Lighten up their pal.

I have friends that live in that area I'll ask them if they saw anything.

I want to make it uncomfortable for jerks to waste space. I came here looking for an answer, not some non-thinker who tries to make a pathetic joke. Mmmm....no, it wasn't a contribution, just a waste...and I don't really care to lighten up "pal". Why don't you go back to the beginning post of this thread: I contributed to this thread by starting it.

Im actually suprised that the other boot hasnt dropped yet (by the Mod).

On the "UFO", I lived in Denver for many years and I think I know where you mean- but could you clarify it for me. I think I know which mountain you are referring to.

Do you mean over on C470 at the I70 interchange or between there and Bandmiere exit or somewhere in between?

Years ago I saw a cigar flying near the foothills adjacent to c470.

Now the name calling starts.

Never mind about me asking my friends that live in that area for helping.

The Air Force Academy is a goodly distance away from there. I have a friend that has some eerily experiences in Estes Park last winter.

Its easy in the mountains to hear jet noises and not be able to see where the jet actually is.
