Just a heads-up - if you live in Denver, keep your eyes on the sky.
While I'm a UFO believer, I'm very skeptical of many reports. I think many mundane objects are mistaken for something more amazing on a regular
basis. Birds, planes and helicopters, balloons and atmospheric anomalies, satellites, etc. People take night-vision video of birds and claim it's a
V-Shaped UFO, even when you can faintly detect the flapping of wings.
At 45, even though I've been watching the skies for awhile, I've never seen what I would consider a UFO. I've taken a few shots of weather balloons,
and seen other things that I have written off as terrestrial origin. But today, I've finally seen something I can't explain, over Aurora, CO (just
south and east of Denver).
I was hanging out by our common BBQ, grilling up some ribs. It was a clear sky, fairly light, around 58 degrees, a few wispy clouds across the way.
I was looking up like I often do, and saw a round object moving quickly from east to west. Seemed like a perfect circle from where I was standing. I
couldn't tell how far up it was, there was no point of reference. Seemed a good ways up at any rate. It was silent, left no contrail, was a darker
brass-like color, or a bit darker, and made no sound. It was moving very quickly. It covered the sky I could see in about 10 seconds. It did not
deviate, it was moving in a straight line. Afterwards, I watched and listened to planes (they were obviously loud, and left brilliant contrails in
the late afternoon - all the planes I saw left contrails), watched birds, etc. I had seen nothing like this before.
So I kept watching between rib-flipping, and then about 10 minutes later, I saw another object moving across the sky in the same direction, some 5 or
so degrees left of the first object. It seemed even higher, I could not make out a distinct shape. It also left no contrail. It was brilliant
flashing a light - a reddish color, but not quite - it was very intermittent. Quick blinks, then solid for a few seconds, etc. If you've watched
network traffic of a Ethernet cable.. it was like that, a bit slower though. It was exceptionally bright however - almost like a brightly polished
square of copper flashing sunlight. Except the light was facing me (to the east), and the sun was setting to the west of the object. It traveled
almost in a straight line, but before it disappeared over the roof of our complex's main building, it sort of moved south to north, the light on solid
for several seconds.
I've never been willing to say anything I've ever seen is truly a UFO. I've always been able to explain it away - usually within seconds. I can not
explain this away - it was not a plane, helicopter, bird, balloon, lantern, satellite or atmospheric condition. I've heard of more activity over
Denver lately - and I think it's probably true. If you live in Colorado, keep those cameras rolling or your eyes on the sky. Something is up there.
I had 10 seconds or so on the first object, and 15 to 20 seconds on the 2nd object - no time to take my phone out of the music it was playing, find
the camera / video, and start recording - not that a camera phone would have shown anything worth seeing. But this was something extraordinary - and
I am one person who is very reluctant to admit this. But it was what it was.
Keep looking up!
