Sighting Report
Occurred : 11/6/1999 02:15 (Entered as : 11/06/99 02:15)
Reported: 11/14/1999 20:45
Posted: 3/21/2003
Location: Canon City, CO
Shape: Light
Duration:45 Minutes
Observed one bright light initially changing colors from violet to red and changing size from slightly smaller than Venus to nearly moon size

Object was seen east of Canon City towards Penrose by two adults Mother and Daughter and 14 year old son. Object appeared to be a ball of light that divided with a dark line (like a hamburger) and at one point appeared to turn on edgewhere three white lights in a triangle pattern were visible. After observing for several minutes, a digital camcorder was employed to capture the phenomena. At about the time the camera was set up three more objects joined the first. The newcomers were slightly smaller appearing and at times faded to deep red or blinked out completely. At one point, the objects appeared to "shoot" white lights between each other that traveled at high speed from one to another. The light show went on for at least 45 minutes and 22 minutes of it are on tape. It is noteworthy that the camera turned off several times when pointed in the direction of the lights (CCD overload shutdown??) even though the lights did not appear to be of extreme intensity.
