There I was laying in a wheel barrel at lunch staring at the front range like countless other nights when a bright red light appeared

I never thought much about reporting what I saw, especially again since this web sight for some reason doesn't either care or has lost my report. Either or it has been awhile but that night still is fresh in my mind! I was taring the roof of the Citadel Mall w/ a bunch of other pay daily workers between the hours of 7pm to 7am. Around 1 am we would take lunch, climb down and head for the 7/11. But this night I just layed in a wheel barrel looking up at the front range star gazing between cheyenne Mt. and Pikes Peak when what looked like and comparably the size of the north star but Red was moving at pretty fast rate of speed. This was not a jet, this was not a shooting or falling star and of course it wasn't a satelite. It had made its way from a top of the front range to mid part of the city in approx. 8 to 9 seconds when it changed angle. Whatever it was, as I got out of the barrel watching it race toward the east, northeast of the springs it had crossed the entire sky frame and dissapeared no sound and all in about 15 sec. When I told everyone what i had seen after lunch you can imagine the smack!
