So this is a post regarding the unidentified objects in the sky over Colorado on Aug 18th 2011. I live in Denver and thats where I saw these. I was walking with my friend last night and I saw something that can really be described as flashes. There was a main flash, sparkly and white almost, and it came down from the sky. It fizzled out for a brief moment before it ignited again and fizzled out.

This was probably around 9:30 or 10 pm Mountain time.

Then I get to ATS and theres this silly thread about Mercury blowing up.

ColoradoJens said: "No way man! I thought I saw a flash in the sky last night! It MUST be what I saw! Cool! Mercury blew up!"

Then OneNationUnder said: "What's even more interesting is that I too saw flashes in the sky last night. From 10:30pm until around midnight, I saw a total of 4 "Explosions of Light." The first when I saw even with the blinds and curtains closed, so I was like, what the...?

Then I saw the 2nd one and I ruled out headlights, lightning and distant fireworks.

The 3rd one comes and I realize it's coming from above, with no sound whatsoever. It wasn't like lightning where you usually see a bolt. It was kinda like they were shining a very powerful flashlight from the ISS down at us, lol.

I don't know what it was, but it did come from above and was quite intense."

Now lets get one thing straight. I dont think that Mercury blew up. But I have truly no idea what these flashes were. I have to agree that it definitly came from above. It looked like a firework but a firework that came down from the sky. My friend and I were completely baffled.

What does ATS think? Did anyone else see this?

Stop trolling


We all....well...some of us know of the Perseids meteor showers....that happen...EVERY year around August.

Get a grip...learn to do some research, it really helps when you make far out claims

Naw it was more of a flash. It had movement and it wasnt just a hovering ball or anything like that. Even the feeling I had after we saw it was really strange. Like when you stand up too fast and get a little head rush. My friend and I talked about it a little later. I was so surprised to read that other people saw something.

Could have been Air Force or Army technology. There are TONS of military bases in Colorado.

Doesnt matter where it was posted originally, its still CGI. The Sun jump on these fake UFO vids because it draws in a whole new crowd of people to their site. People generally will not question something they do not understand.

I however have been using CGI software for a number of years and can see a fake ufo video from a mile off.
There are lots of little things that can be seen in this video that amount to video editing/tampering.

I am a believer, i however find these videos annoying to say the least. Anyone can make a simple video like this with the right software...which is freely available.

The OP more than likely saw meteors, as this is the time of the year for them
The fizzle like fireworks when they hit our atmosphere...and fall downwards.




I have to agree that it definitly came from above. It looked like a firework but a firework that came down from the sky. My friend and I were completely baffled.

You know it could have been a meteor. Thats the most likely explanation but it doesnt sit well with me. It wasnt a little ball. I"ve seen meteor showers before and this wasn't one. It was too close, too low. And it had a white...sparkle... to it almost

I've been in Colorado for two weeks now, and I don't know if I saw it or not because my blinds were closed, but I do remember seeing at least two flashes through the blinds and I wasn't sure what it was that night. hmmmmmm Wonder if I saw the same thing.

It was nowhere near that big of a flash. Just like a fizzle. It didnt light up the area around us and cast shadows like those ones you just posted. It was seriously baffling.

Yeah I'm in Denver and saw just one of these, but to be fair I was inside the rest of the night.

What time did you see some flashes? OneNationUnder said they saw four flashes from 10:30 til midnight. Mine was a little earlier, closer to 10. Pretty crazy you saw some flashes too though. Can you describe them?

Not as good as the one spitting fire balls out either end.
This one is leaving a trail of hiccups going backwards.
You mean to say we have no flying machine that can make fire balls in the sky.
Well I beg to differ with you on that charge.
Electrostatic pulses can make fire balls from the simple arc spark to the
more sophisticated wave of fireballs which puzzle our imagination.
You say cgi but I say it can be done for real.

Id be willing to bet money on the fact it was a meteor


They arent all as bright, depends on size and the angle they come in....also what they are made of.

Its too much of a coincidence that there are major meteor showers at this time of the year....and given your initial description it matches what you would be likely to see during these showers.

Yeah I gotta agree with you. Thanks for the Perseid meteor shower info. Thats gotta be what it was considering people saw these flashes all night all around the state. If it was just one I'd be more suspicous and if it wasn't August. Thanks!

Was there a mystifying feeling like these people had when you see something like this:

The ships do not stay up without some upward movement surrounding it is
a possible explanation. Don't get spiritual its just some type of upward draft.

Mine were closer to midnight. Not sure exactly when cause I was sitting in bed (on ATS actually). I just remember the lights flashing and it being way brighter than car headlights. It just didn't react like car headlights shining through the blinds, which is why it stuck in my head. After about 5-6 flashes it stopped. Which is another reason I don't think it was a car. But it was so short I completely discounted it.

Oh, and I'm currently in Colorado Springs to give a distance for the rest of you. (Though, heading back home to Utah in 4 hours! Finally...10 day business trips are too long)

I know what you mean i live in Aurora and i have been seeing weird flashing a lot. This is when there are no clouds or anything just flashes in the sky. Also there has been sounds like thunder but no lightening or clouds. I have seen a few post about this kind of stuff happening in Colorado ill try and find the links and post them. But I do know what you mean because we got some very weird stuff happening in Colorado lately.
