I love to read ATS, and don't post very often, but reading your story, I thought I'd share a story with you. I've always been a believer in UFO's
from as early as I can remember, and at least once in my life, I believe that I have seen a being in my room. I've even seen my fair share of UFO's
being a resident of Colorado myself.
Here's my story, nothing exciting, but, same location as yours, and around the same time period.
I grew up in Salida, CO, and even though it's a beautiful place to hike/climb/enjoy nature, there's not much to do in regards to......civilization.
lol So my friends and I always liked to visit Colorado Springs on the weekends, to get away, and buy things you couldn't at ma & pa
Well, one night in 1996, we were done in the Springs, and decided to head on home. I was sitting in the backseat, and noticed a bright star in the
distance. At least I assumed it was a star. I don't know why, I just couldn't take my eyes off of it. My friend, who was driving, noticed it as
well and asked me what it was. Now, in my circle of friends, I'm usually the "Mulder", and they're the "Scully's", meaning I'm first to claim,
they're first to debunk. Oddly enough, the roles switched. So I told him "It's just a star, keep your eyes on the road, I don't want to die in a
Well, even though I said that, I noticed that the star moved with the horizon. What I mean is, though it was stationary, it didn't stay in the same
spot like a star would. It "moved" like a light in the distance would if you were driving around it, meaning it was much closer than a star. He
noticed it too, and told me that it's not a star. But, once again, I Scully'd him and said it's got to be a light on a tower or something. Then,
within a few short moments of that, the light just started moving straight upward from it's original location.
When we saw that, all of us just yelled "Holy #!!!", and couldn't stop watching. Once it got high enough in the sky, it moved a little bit to the
left, then shot off to the right, and disappeared. Thought I'd share that with you, since you had an experience around the same time period, in the
